    I know, in a way it must be nice to have a mum who cares that much and is very proactive.
    Maybe you should tell her to lay off a bit? I know it can be hard but sometimes family needs putting in their place
    She hasn't bothered up until now, and the only thing she's done is make me doubt myself even more.

    I've tried... it didn't work.

    Then the best thing you can do is ignore her if you don't want to shout at her family problems are awful at any time so I can't imagine how awful you feel

    I was already doubting it, purely because I'd never looked at Advertising courses before and this one has a year in industry. She just added to it. At least I don't live with her haha

    well at the end of the day I'm sure you know what's best for you and what you will prefer. Just ignore her?

    How I want to say Bournemouth because of the year in employment but I've had my heart set on Cardiff for so long and I have to wonder how credible I'd look changing my mind about my course AGAIN.

    Employers won't know that you changed your mind. You are going to Bournemouth aren't you? If so don't think about it until you go. Because you'll never know until you go and you might hate it. Also when you are there let your mum give options but don't let her convince you one way or another.

    Yeah I'm thinking more about my Nan and my college teachers - I know that I've left but I don't want to disappoint them. Yeah, on the 17th if everything goes to plan It's so hard not to think about though because I've got nothing else to do

    I will brush her opinions off if I don't like it... it's if I like it and then get into Cardiff that worries me!

    At least when you're in uni you get your results in July. I'm planning on getting a job while I'm at uni as well.

    Unless you have to resit and you get August exams and I'm pretty much looking to get summer research placements in the uni every year.
