While putting into practice the various suggestions made here, I suggest that you also cultivate the habit of reading. Read for pleasure, whether you are taking courses or not. It will give you an intellectual outlet--an escape, even--while sharpening your wits, improving your vocabulary, and readying you to make the most of whatever educational opportunities you find down the track. If there isn't a public library nearby, try this: http://www.gutenberg.org/

Have you visited Wilson College that is in your town?  (1015 Philadelphia Ave., Chambersburg, PA 17201-1285)

They even have an Adult Degree Program Online Application (you do need the GED):

I have never been to Chambersburg, but took me less than 5 minutes to find this information. Here is visitor info for the college: http://www.wilson.edu/visit/index.aspx. Good luck!
