Joash: What Mr. Bullfrog said is so spot on that you need to take it to heart.
I can tell you this though: Once you have gone through a really good course, you'll come home and immediately start planning ahead for your next one.
Start planning today. Start saving today. If you start now, and it is two years before you get to go, guess what? You'll have everything you need for the course as well as be in a position to not have any debt afterward. Even if you have to drive a thousand miles to get to the course, you won't regret it one bit. So sit down and plan it out so your budget doesn't take a hit.
In life, you'll have your back up against the wall many times. You might as well get used to it.-Bear Bryant.
