First of all, I really appreciate for anyone taking their time to read this and reply.
Basically, I'm 23 (Almost 24) years old and I haven't got any idea of where I want to be in life. I don't have a career panned out, unlike many people my age. I am really struggling to figure out a career path. It is slightly depressing, even though I put on a brave face. I am good at boxing, but I don't think I want to turn pro in the sport, just because I care for my health too much.
Apart from this, I don't really have a huge amount of interests. I like Music, and I can sing well, but I don't want the fame that comes with being a musician. I know it sounds weird, being a boxer who can sing, but I guess I am fortunate to have a good singing voice too.
I like Exotic animals, and I have thought about going back to education to become a Zoologist. But I don't really feel education is for me to be honest. I understand education is important, and it gives you more opportunity for a better career, but if I have no desire for education any more, I don't see the point in putting myself through it.
I never went to University, but when I was 18 I started college, an age when most students are finishing college. I started on a foundation course because my GCSEs were bad, and from that I went onto a normal 2 year course. So all together, I spent 3 years in college and left when I was 21.
I studied Sport Science, but now It's a subject I'm not interested in any more. I realise it was now a waste of 3 years, which could of gone into something more worthwhile, but at the time it was an interest of mine. Don't get me wrong, I still love sport, BUT It's just not something I want to have a career in.
I currently work as a Building Assistant for a friend of the family, the money is average for the work I do. I do work hard, but it's not something I want for the rest of my life. To be honest, I'm not interested in building or trades, I just took this job because it was offered to me, and I needed work at the time. But now I realise I need to start my own career somehow, but I'm not sure how or what!
I wouldn't mind opening my own business in Sports Nutrition, but again, that requires lots of money to start the business. And I also have no idea about business! So I would be like a small fish in a massive pond! lol.
Anyway, sorry to keep rambling, but I really am a bit frustrated and slightly depressed about this.
Any helpful advice you can offer?
