    I want a successful and respectable career, something I can look on and admire all the hard work it took to get there.This makes me think something along the lines of gaining a Phd, perhaps in History or English. Because I LOVE learning.

    I have thought about a Law degree of a conversion course but that doesn't interest me really.

    I want to travel a bit, learn some languages, live a good life, but I also want to come home to a career I'm proud of.

    I have no idea what I want to study at university yet, I feel like if I do go and do History or English I am setting myself up for failure because other that the dreams of becoming a professor, there isn't much else I feel I could do with those degree's that gives me a that sense of respect for my career choice.

    But I also understand no one really goes into university like "I'm going to become a professor" it's really not likely is it?

    This is really getting me down!

    Try not to pursue something because it would be deemed respected and admirable. Pursue something that you think you may enjoy.

    I have tried doing that but it doesn't work I want to make myself proud I suppose, I am not a snob but snobbery has infected my brain I know deep down and it limits my choices. But don't get me wrong, I want to pursue history or english but I only want to if it means I can gain something worthwhile out of doing it! I know that sounds awful, but I suppose I can't afford to waste £9000 a year for 3 years...

    well - try your bloody hardest at your A levels - aim for the high A*s (so that if you fall below that you won't fall lower than a B)

    then take a gap year, work, save money, volunteer, travel, live - then after all those experiences in the real worl you'll have some idea of what you actually enjoyed doing - and then apply to do that

    Lol no it's still me! But I posted on my other account because it wouldn't let me post on the original one. First I thought I would play it off as 'anon 2' and then I realised the stupid date on the thread so now I can't actually post from the original account. What is going on TSRRRRR ?

    That sounds like the best plan really, I have already planned to take a gap year and to travel and stuff, I hope I find myself.
