    So basically I applied to University in October to study English Language (which was basically my mum's choice as I was so undecided). Since then I changed my firm course to Film Studies with Film Production, which is really exciting and I know I'd love the course but I'd also have 0 job prospects at the end of it. Currently I really wish I'd thought more about what I really want to do with my life; I wish I'd applied to study mental health nursing as it's an area I'm knowledgeable about and would suit the course, though demanding. My mum believes any degree is better than no degree because she never got to go to uni and wants me out of the house and through my degree. She won't let me defer my university place and she said if I defer I can't stay at home because she "wants her life back" (second child syndrome). What do I do!?!?!? I really want to study mental health nursing and I already have a job that my manager said I can work full time in if I took a year out to reapply- it's not like I wouldn't be doing anything. I'm just so stuck and it's making me so stressed
