    I'm 23 and never really pursued something and stuck to it. I started playing football when I was a kid then packed it in, then started again but realized I didn't like the atmosphere and idiots that play (mainly just looking for a scrap).

    I picked up drums a couple of years ago but can't stay motivated with it. I also only have a little electric kit so feel my learning is very limited not getting on a proper kit.

    I started going to the gym for about a year but jacked that in 6 months ago because of anxiety and, again, losing motivation.

    I feel like I'm running out of time not finding something and becoming the best I can be at it! Any advice?

    Are you joining any groups? I've also found that setting myself goals really helps.
