This post has been on my list for months but I've never posted it because it's more of a personal post but I am sure I am not the only person in the world who has/is feeling like this!
I'm currently doing my GCSEs at school; I've suddenly had a massive wake up call that in a couple of years I'm going to be entering the 'real world' (as all adults call it). I feel like there is only a couple of years left of the childhood quote that everyone and their mother has used "When I'm older I want to be..." Soon my routine I've been use to since I was 4 will be coming to an end; wake up, go to school... and a whole new one will be created.
"What do you want to be when you are older?" A question that is asked to you all through out of your childhood. I've had a few ideas over the years; a princess, then a vet, then a teacher, they all got more realistic. The truth is at this moment of time I have no idea. I am the only one out of my friends who doesn't know what they want to be - I feel like that puts more pressure on me to pick a career path I would like to go down. I have a slight outline of what I want to do but they could lead to hundreds of possibilities - 1 Travel the world 2. Meet loads of new people 3. Not be stuck in the same office seat everyday working from 9-5. I'm currently not even sure whether or not I should go to university. I can only see it as I will be in thousands of pounds in debt, and what if that wasn't even the right course for me. Scary!
The other week one of my teachers said to my class "these letters are going to be wrote on every job application for the rest of my life." It kind of freaked me out at the time but it's a hundred percent true.
Are any of you in the same position as me?
