    Not going to lie! I did rubbish at school, when I mean rubbish I mean it. I didn't even achieve a C in maths at GCSE. School life was hard being bullied. I did do a year doing some functional skills thing at sixth form, bur decided to leave after a year. I did get an apprenticeship which I did for nearly 2 years, that went completely wrong after being conned out of over a thousand pound which resulted in me wasting nearly 2 years and having to leave.

    After that, I felt very down for ages! Literally didn't see any friends for months. I should have really got some help! However, I have had always had a dream of starting a business. I did this and it was a struggle for most of the year! However, it's nearly coming up to a year and progress is starting to be really happening and getting quite busy!

    I have never been a very "fast" person at achieving things. I am always the last one at everything. I was the last to pass my driving test, last to learn how to swim at school! However, I have always had the drive to achieve. Which I felt I lost for a while but luckily just lately I feel, it's coming back.

    One thing that's really playing on my mind. I am now 19. I don't go clubbing, never had a girlfriend. I just don't know what to do to change that. Hopefully, in 6 months time, I will have the funds to get a shared office, so I am getting out the house again! I'm 19, I mean everyone is off to uni telling me how great their social life is.

    I know Uni isn't for me (no I couldn't have gone anyway), I hated education and much rather be working! But I just need a better social lifestyle! I have no idea where to start.
