    Hello! I am applying to uni soon, but I really don't know what to do... Im in the top class for physics, biology, chemistry and English, but drama too! I wanted to study at St. Andrews for medicine for about 4 years, but when I was 13 I decided that I wanted to be an actress, because I am top of the class for drama and I can cry on cue, immediately figure out when the blocking needs changing and can memorise a 12 scene script in 3 hours! So then I decided that I wanted to try and go to The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for BA acting. My mum has just said when I was looking at university websites that if I was an actress, although I'm good (she said good. Not great, not excellent, good.) I would probably end up being a waitress, even though she's a waitress in her cafe that she bought last year, it still made me feel bad, and she said that I would be so happy as a doctor because apparently I like making people feel better. I honestly don't know what to do, because I don't want to be a failed actress who has completely screwed up her life and I don't want to be a doctor who works 80 hours a week and has no active social life! PLEASE HELP ME CHOOSE AND DONT SAY THAT ITS ONLY MY DECISION BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO DECIDE!!!!
