Signs that it’s time to go back to school

If you went to college many years ago, but never finished, you may have thought about returning. It’s never too late to go back to school and finish what you started, but it’s important to know when the time is right. After all, college is a big commitment and requires dedication to succeed, even if you decide to start off slowly. How can you know that the time has finally come to go back? The following are some signs:

 

1. The day you stopped going to college has bugged you ever since, and you just feel like something is missing in your life.

 

2. You already bought a backpack and filled it up with a ton of school supplies. It sits in the corner of your living room. You stare at it longingly.

 

3. You hate the industry you work in and want to train for something else entirely.

 

4. Or maybe you like the field you work in, but you’re looking to grow. You definitely have the skills and experience, but a lack of a college degree is the one thing holding you back.

 

5. Either way, you’re just super eager and ready to learn.

 

6. You know you have the time during your week fit in something else. Even if it’s just a couple online classes to start off with, your schedule isn’t as jam-packed as it usually is.

 

7. Or maybe you’re completely bored out of your mind your schedule is completely wide open and you can afford to take the time to focus on school full-time before you apply for your next job.

 

8. Back in the day, you weren’t too sure what you wanted to do with your life or what you wanted to study. Fast-forward to the present, and you know exactly what you want to major in, down to every single class you want to take. You’re not messing around.

 

9. You’re not getting pressured by someone else to go back. You’re truly doing it for you.

 

10. Tuition can be costly, but you’ve got it taken care of: Whether you’re getting reimbursed through your employer, eligible for scholarships and/or financial aid, or you’re receiving a lump sum of cash from J.G. Wentworth.

10 hilarious tweets from people who hate their jobs 

A lot of us have had those days when we simply can’t stand our jobs—or, you know, have these feelings every day. Whether it’s the industry you work in or the specific company you work at, you probably understand exactly what some of these Twitter users are going through:

1. When your coworkers are kinda horrible.

 


2. Although it’s good to be dedicated to doing your job well, you’re just dedicated to truly despising it.

 


3. When you have this same fantasy every single day. Every few minutes.

 


4. Because 
nap time at the office really should be a thing.

 


5. When you need daily “therapy.”

 


6. Because you’d literally rather do anything else than actually deal with anything work-related.

 


7. Because you’re a fan of eating and not being homeless.

 


8. Because you seriously thought your day off would never, ever come.

 

 

9. Those alarms, though.

 


10. That slightly comforting feeling you get when you realize other people do have worse jobs than you.

If you’re unhappy with your current employment situation, it’s time to take charge and make some serious changes. Do you need extra cash to start your own business or to go to college so you can pursue other career goals? J.G. Wentworth may be able to help if you’re receiving structured settlement payments. Contact J.G. Wentworth today to find out how you can receive your money sooner by selling some or all of your future payments.

Spring semester savings: 7 ways for college students to keep costs down

With spring semester beginning around the country, we thought now would be the perfect time to look at some great money-savings tips for college students. Here are seven ways college students can keep their costs down and stretch their hard-earned dollars the farthest.

Keep textbook costs as low as possible

Think you have to buy the newest addition of every textbook your college professor requires for the course? – Think again. Alternatives to purchasing new textbooks include borrowing them from the school library, renting them, sharing the cost of the textbook with students in the same class, finding an earlier edition of the same textbook, and seeking out graduates of the course for their old textbooks.

Use that first credit card wisely

Many college students obtain their first credit card upon enrollment in school. Use it wisely by never buying more than you can afford, paying bills off on time each and every month, educating yourself on the merits of a good credit score, and avoiding late charges and excessive debts at so early an age.

Investigate all discounted student activities

Most colleges have a wide range of activities available for students at discounted prices. These can include movie nights, social events, lectures, museums, concerts, and many other activities your student ID card will allow you to access at a reasonable cost.

Keep food costs down

There are many ways to keep food costs down while a student. These can include finding the right on-campus eating plan that doesn’t require you to purchase three meals a day, sharing cooking costs with friends and roommates, and learning how to grocery shop wisely by using coupons and going to bulk stores like Sam’s Club and Costco.

Apply for scholarships

Most students make the mistake of thinking that scholarship opportunities only exist for those at the start of their college careers. But many school divisions and departments offer work and need-based scholarships for students already enrolled.

Get an on-campus job that will give you both extra cash and additional school-related benefits

Examples of great student jobs that provide such benefits include becoming a Resident Advisor at a college dormitory, working at on-campus eateries that provide meals for their employees, and signing up for surveys and experiments offered by various departments that pay students for their participation.

Get good grades

Last but certainly not least is what we consider to be our most important recommendation when it comes to long-term financial success: earning good grades. Good grades on a transcript show such attributes as determination, resiliency, and the ability to perform hard work to all prospective employers and professional schools that may be in your future; in the long-term, they will probably give you more financial benefits than any of the other important tips we’ve suggested.

We hope these seven tips will help you get a jumpstart on a successful spring semester, and allow you to keep working hard academically without getting buried in debt. And if you continue to have financial problems related to the costs of a higher education, or have other financial hardships that may lead you to want to get cash now out of your structured settlement or annuity, please contact J.G. Wentworth today at 877-227-4713.
