We got "the talk" today- not that talk, that was years ago, no, the;
"you may think you have two years to make a choice but in all reality your Ucas applications needs to be in this time next year and if you fail your AS levels you will fail in life" talk.
I feel very stressed- Thing is I invariably flit between wanting a Gap year because I do not feel old enough to go to university, or wanting to do an apprenticeship in something artsy, or Flirting with Journalism.
However something I do keep coming back to is Midwifery, Except I would have to take another subject to gain something relevant to the course- do a foundation degree and go into NHS hospitals which, to be honest, I'm not comfortable in, what really interests me is Home births and Hypnobirthing but you need to go through a whole lot to get there.
I don't know.
I am not yet seventeen- how do I know what I want to do for the rest of my life?- And with things the way they are, I could (hopefully) only afford to do this once- if I get in that is.
I feel pressure like a ton of bricks on my shoulders.
I took a sporadic dusting of subjects with no end goal in mind- just cus.
English Language, RE- philosophy and ethics and Art, none scream midwife or Journalist.
Does anyone have any experience in any of these none to eloquently put fields?
