    For a great deal of time I have been unsure about what it is I’d like to do as a career. When I was at school I used to create short films and initially thought I wanted a career in film production and video-editing. Then, when I went to college, I found that I did not really enjoy it and decided that I wanted to go into Animation.

    Having attempted Art and Design for a good length of time, I found I could not develop my drawing skills enough to produce decent enough drawings and consequently was rejected from a number of Arts universities. Later down the road, I decided to study more Humanities based subjects such as English, History, etc. and evidently flourished in this. However, I am not entirely sure if a Humanities subject is something I'd really want to do and now I am finding myself unsure of what it is I want to do in the future. I am investigating the computing side of things, but the last thing I’d want is to go to university and then have to withdraw/leave down the line.

    I am now 23 years old and will be 24 if I do decide to go to university next year. Consequently I am concerned that I will be considered 'old' among my peers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm 23 and I believe I'll have to repeat my second year again kind of? (I withdrew the first time to have my daughter) and my peers don't think I'm old at all although at times I do feel old but I think that's more because I don't go out every night of the week and have to be an actual adult because of my daughter! 😂

    All I can honestly say is you have to do what makes you happy! xx
