D-D'I must decide which of my goals will be delayed.Yes, all the goals can be achived with discipline
B-DI will complete my courses faster and will save on tuition cost, will get a better job, and will be able to provide my child a better lifeI will not be able to handle the stress from work, school, and raising a child; therefore, will fail the clasess. I will not be able to graduate faster, instead will have to spend more money on tuition. If I'm not able to graduate faster, I will not be able to get a better job. Also, I will not spend quality time with my little one.
C-D'The stress level will be lower and better grades will be acomplished. I will have more time to spend with my litte one.It will take me forever to graduate from college. I will become lazy and will drop out of college. My little one will not be proud of her mother
