    I'm almost finished with my college course in A2 but don't want to go to university. I have no idea what to do with my year apart from work. I know what sort of things i like to do and jobs i like the sound of but absolutely don't want to go to university. The subjects i study are History, Photography and Film studies. I love the idea of archaeology, architecture, teaching and estate agent jobs. All very different i know but that's what i am interested in. I also enjoy photography as a hobby. Some if any direction or ideas would be amazing i'm very confused and struggling to make any sort of decision.
