you will questrion yourself up to the day you go, even then you will still question.
i remeber back at school having a MASSIVE argument with a teacher in the middle of the main corridoor, because i didnt want to go to uni, and he thought i should.

even just before chirstmas, i was at uni, a still wanted to give up.

GO. and give it till AFTER christmas. if it wasnt for my mum talking me out of leaving at christmas, i wouldnt be here now a month before the end of my first year spending today doing work :/

like you i was happy with the job i was doing before i came to uni, i could hav happily stayed there, but now im glad i came to uni.

everyone goes through the same thing!

Yes to some extent, university can be very daunting for some.

Oh and because you kept saying 'liek' I couldn't help thinking of this:

Being aprehensive on dedicating yourself to study for the next three years is normal
What you're doing now may be fun however what is to say Uni life won't be?
Although of course you can always postepone going to Uni until you feel ready for it, my sister did this and went at 23

Just remember why you applied to go to uni in the first place.

If I could've been a SLT without going to uni I would have just gone straight into it, but I enjoy my course, knowing what it will lead to.

The first 2 posts.. wow. OnT: Yes it is but really you should have thought about all these thing before applying to university. I think many English students would benefit from taking a gap year and really thinking about what they want to do. Thats what most Scandinavians do and it works fine for us, it saves us going into something half-heartedly.
