      Well I study Print-Based Media (Journalism) now, and I wouldn't mind becoming rich and famous for my own personal pleasures either, you know
      Well it's not going to happen with a Media degree. :ahee:

      I'm still not 100% sure what I want to do with my life in the long term... I really thought I was, but being at university has made me question everything I thought I knew prior to getting there. I am just gonna see how things pan out for a while.

      I wanted to do law for aaaaages and then did Politics as an A Level. I loved it so decided to apply for History and Politics, I started to hate A2 History so looked at straight politics, I found IR from there and found it more suited to me

      Career wise, no idea! I love the environmental side of IR and am going to write my dissertation about infectious diseases as a security threat I think. Something like that anyway I've thought about teaching, lecturing, journalism, governmental work and just about everything else but I can't pin exactly what I'd like to do. I definitely want to do a Masters, that's about as far forward as I've gone so far!

      I pleaded with my parents in Year 12 to let me drop English because I wasn't enjoying it. About six months later, I was completely confident I wanted to do it at university! A bit unusual, really. I think I was a bit taken aback by it being so much more complicated than GCSE (duh) but I told myself to man up and try harder. And then I got really good. And yes, I should listen to my parents more!

      I didn't really like any other subjects than languages, so that's what I'm doing at uni.
      Past that, I have no idea, and I can picture myself feeling the same in 10 years time.

      Year 8, I have a cousin that is a stockbroker and she tends to always be reading the ft and brings home some of her work. I was inspired by her.

      For ages (like since before I started secondary school) my career ideas had always been between doing something arty and something to do with science. By Year 9 I was leaning more towards science, but I only decided for sure in Year 10 when I started an art GCSE and realised that I don't want to be doing this all my life. Also by then I had started reading science books and realised that physics is amazing. I can't imagine wanting to do anything else now. Physics = :love:
