Get out your calendars and a marker, folks, because the latest Teen Mom news needs to be marked down. Jenelle Evans is taking the responsible route!
The Teen Mom 2 star has been taking serious heat on Twitter because she's not currently enrolled in college -- even though co-stars Kailyn and Chelsea have both managed to juggle single motherhood with going back to school. But the way Jenelle tells it, she's got a pretty valid reason for putting off her degree. Any guesses?
“@KABKAR77: @PBandJenelley_1 how could u not?” Taxes, not qualified for the pell grant, bills, child support, etc.
Don't believe it? Well, consider this: a recent report on the Teen Moms' net worth claimed Jenelle is by far the poorest with a net worth of just about $10,000. And the money Jenelle is bringing in is all being claimed between rent, car insurance, and child support for Jace, plus some "debts" that the Teen Mom says she has to pay off to various people.
She didn't elaborate on whom she's indebted to, but this is a girl who has had to be bailed out of jail a few times. Her debts are sure to be many.
But so what? She's not the first person to rack up a pile of debt in this country. What's more important here is that she's doing something about it. She's working, and she's using the money to do something positive in her life.

If she's actually paying people back for helping her out, Jenelle is finally taking the big step toward understanding that she is not the center of the universe. When other people step forward to help you out, you owe it to them to return the favor. And sometimes that means putting off what you want to accomplish until you've wiped the slate clean.
Jenelle has done plenty of shameful things in her life, but delaying college because she is being fiscally responsible is not one of them.
What do you think of Jenelle putting off college? Is this a sign of a new Jenelle?
