Information Overload

So I have been thinking about going back to college because lets face it I am a single mother and I am tired of being broke after working 40+ hours a week at a job I have been at for 5 years and still don't make enough to be comfortable. I no longer have the urge to live paycheck to paycheck but really who does. Anyway I took the placement test and did wonderful in English and writing go figure.... but the math portion was a little hard for me since I haven't picked up a math book since I was a sophomore in high school and even then I really didn't learn anything at all! So I was admitted and well I am now stuck in a class I like to call idiot math and it is even hard for me so I guess I should have taken stupid idiot math but this class was already full of stupid idiots that were smart enough to enroll in classes b4 they were all full.... :o) I wish someone would have slapped me when I was 15 and in algebra 1 and saying why do I need to know what x ='s.... this explains so much. Now I know why I needed to know what x equals but still don't really know how to figure out how get that answer..... oh the irony!!! I am also taking a Government class and it is pretty easy (thank goodness) and Psychology which I am taking online and that is really easy for me since all we need to do is type up essays on our opinion so far!!!!

I really don't know what I was thinking when I decided that I would work a full time job and take full time classes for college but its been pretty rewarding so far. I do, however, sit at work trying to keep my eyes open but my hourly wage isn't great enough to not allow at least one nap in 5 yrs... any pointers would be greatly appreciated!!
