I turn 24 in March next year, I did college from 16-19 doing ''art'' which I found out was more about the social aspect than a career.
I have since done the odd job and travelled for 6 months in Australia, I can't lie I have had quite a good time! but for the last 8 months I have been working in care and absolutely hate it.. I told my parents I have researched and want to go away to university and study Occupational Therapy. I have explained to them the NHS fund most of the course so I won't be in heavy debt etc.
But they keep saying I need to settle down and I would be 27/28 by the time I graduate, I can't keep 'dossing' etc.
I understand how they must feel, but even though it is selfish, I just want to enjoy my life? go University and make the most out of this short life I have? but I feel guilty that my dad has been working since 17 and I am just sponging.. although I pay rent I still feel maybe I am not doing the right thing, although in my head I know what I truly want.
I just want to hear opinions on if you think I would be wasting my time going back? am I too old? etc
