What should I do??

I'm studying AS level Media Studies, English Language and Psychology but I cannot stand college at all, the subjects are okay but overall I just hate it. When I chose my A levels, I wanted to work in journalism but now I really don't want to. I'm thinking of going to a different college to do a vocational course instead of A-level but that means staying at college for an extra year whilst all my other friends go to Uni.

At first I thought of doing Health and Social Care and going onto nursing or midwifery in the future but I keep going off that idea... The thought of becoming a graphic designer keeps entering my head but I'm not sure whether I should carry this out or not, whether it's an easy profession to go into, what businesses would hire you or what the pay is like. I got a B in Art and Design at GCSE and I'm not the best artist going but I'm definitely not awful so would I be able to go into it or not???

If you decide to go into graphic design, the BTEC in wither Art and Design or Graphic Design will be more beneficial than A levels and also some art degrees require you to submit a portfolio and you will have one from your BTEC whereas A level students usually have to do Art Foundation (which is a BTEC anyway)
