27 too late to graduate and behind in life? Watch
A bit about my background, I studied business at uni but during my 2nd year I dropped out since I was not enjoying my degree and a career in finance is not really my beckoning.
Now at 23 I'm starting my access couse in computing and looking to read computer science at uni with the intention of getting into software development, which is a job I would enjoy and computer science is intriguing to me.
My worry is that I feel I'm behind in life and think I'm late to start career when I graduate at 27. My younger cousins are graduating this year and my friends have graduated last year too and I can't help feeling inferior.
Would appreciate advice.
If you're going to neg then at least have the decency to explain why. The OP IS behind compared to his friends/cousins, he wasn't comparing himself to the rest of you people who happen to be starting their degrees at 29 or whatever.
Would you rather be a bit behind, or go through life thinking "What if...?"
Edit: found out it's by Elenor Roosevelt. This women is simple amazing, another quote from her 'do the thing you think you cannot do!' got me through a hard time. Most pick up a book bout her.
Your life before university isn't a waste, and in honesty you probably won't stay in the same career all your life anyway. Few people do these days unless they study medicine, dentistry, etc.
These people that are graduating could go into a job and realise it actually not what they want to do anymore. Then whose behind!! you have to think that you'll be working for the next 50 odd years of your life! i'm in exactly the same position, i too shall (hopefully) be graduating at 26, but i'd rather graduate later than stay in the same mundane job not really doing alot. Thik of it in a different mind set will make it so much easier lol
