    Hey, i've been chopping and changing degree ideas, and i've come to realise that it's because, as soon as I decide I want to do a certain degree, e.g. law, i'll read that law is a reading intensive degree, and then i'll get stressed out when I don't understand a word, thinking i'll flunk law.

    In general, when i'm 'doing X subject' i'll put immense pressure on myself to 'get' every aspect of it, for example thinking of doing a geography degree, then when I don't get a small concept in class, ' o no, I'll meet this at uni and if I don't get it now then...' and then i'll deem myself useless for it.

    Then, when i'm stressing, another subject all of a sudden seems like a better idea, in fact, if i'm thinking of doing law, i'll actually enjoy geography more because of the little pressure i'll put on myself to get it all.

    This is a real mental struggle, what can I do?
