Was My Momma Right?

I heard through the grapevine from one of my aunts that my mother never wanted me to work and go to school at the same time.  If I was going to work, I need to work.  If I was going to go to school, I needed to go to school.  She knew that my learning style require focus and committment with constant engagement on the subject matter in order for me to do well.  Secretly, even though she is in heaven with Jesus, I tried to prove her wrong!  I can do well at school and work at the same time if I try hard enough....right??

Obviously not for this kid. So midterm grades are in and I'm failing. This is what the breakdown looks like:
F - American History
B - New Testament Introduction
C - Local Church Outreach
F - Hermeneutics
F - Health/Fitness II

I don't know what to do with myself.  Failing is not an option, especially based on the scholarships that I've received.  Not only is failing not an option, I have to maintain at least a 3.0GPA!  Granted it's only midterm grades and a lot can change, but can it change enough for me to do well?  This week is currently Spring Break and classes start back up on Monday, March 25th.  There are 5 weeks remaining in the semester, which means I have 5 weeks to get this together. 

The million dollar questions - how do I do well at work while staying on top of my school work?  Do I resign from work?  But if I do that, how will I afford to live?  Oh Lord, what do I do?
