    Hi there,

    So I'm feeling a little lost and wanted some advice from people my age and in my situation.

    I've currently just started university 2 years after I should have done as I deferred college for 2 years.

    I quit my first college after 2 days, quit 2 apprenticeships after just days and after a week at uni I already want to quit.

    I'm so lost in life, I don't know what I want to do and who I want to be. I thought that uni was the right choice for me, but I already know it isn't and now don't know what to do. My parents are always supportive, more than I deserve, but I don't know how they'll react to me already wanting to quit.

    I've had a job in retail and was miserable, I just don't know what to do.

    Is anyone in a similar situation or could give me some advice on what I should do?

    You need to first work out why you're feeling this way and what you can do about it. Then you need to think about whether dropping out is the best thing for you and what you'd like to do next. If you do drop out I suggest getting some work experience and working out what you enjoy and are good at. Then work out what jobs you want to do and then what you need to go to get them.
