I was paying out of pocket and did not want to get a school loan.
It was a bit difficult for me to keep up with the payments so i had to let it go at the time. I did get to complete 2 years and had an A average throughout all my classes.
I'd like to add that i also served in the US Airforce for 2 years from 1991-1993. Serving at Osan Korea for a year as a Radio News Broadcast Specialist and also as a DJ there.
Next duty after Korea was to Aviano Airbase serving as a TV News Reporter doing stories in remote areas. I did all my own writing, filming, editing, interviewing and voice recordings for the local and any international news assigned to me. I carried all the "dated" equipment myself which weighed approximately 40 lbs, walking for extensive distances with multiple gear on challenging terrain.
