Have no idea what I want to do in life... Help!!!!! Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey so basically I got my AS level results today and they were okay but not great. I got -

    Fine Art - C
    Photography - C
    Travel and Tourism - C
    Geography - D

    My problem is that I have absolutely no idea what I want to do as a career later in life, if I want to go to University or even if I want to go back to college next year! I have hated college this year for various reasons which is why I got typically bad results!

    I also have no idea what I'm interested in and I have absolutely no motivation at all at the moment meaning I'm not really interested in anything. I do however enjoy fashion and have a part time working in a clothes shop which I love

    Is it worth trying to find a different college that I may like better that still does A Levels as I sort of want to get the full A levels otherwise I feel like I have wasted this year???

    Or shall I not go back to college in September and take a bit of a break and pick up more hours at my part time job????

    Any advice would be really helpful as I'm really stuck and I feel like I'm going nowhere in life, however I don't want to mess up my life by making the wrong decision!

    Also just to add that college constantly gets me down and I feel depressed when I'm there due to the fact that I find the work too hard, the college is miles away from my house meaning it takes me around an hour to get there everyday and I just don't enjoy the subjects or get on well with the lectures.

    Thank you
