I feel under a lot of strain right now...
I'm 28 and graduated last year with a 1st but have been mostly unemployed for the past year. I could have tried much harder as my anxiety has effected my job search (going to assessment centres, etc), but it's also really tough out there. I was rejected by Next and M&S for simple retail work....
I want to get a career so I applied and got offers for a few different MSc courses. Problem is I've left it late and now I'm in a panic with courses starting this week and it's easy to fall behind on a masters so they won't hold my offers beyond this week.
I'm *****ing myself tbh, because if I don't go this year I will be 29 by the time I start and turning 30 before I graduate. I honestly don't know whether to take the jump or hold back. My 20s have mostly passed me by due to mental illness.
The past year has been horrible. I still live at home and all of my friends have gone and moved on in life. I spend most of my time alone and just want to move on. It's on my mind 24/7

I'm doing a masters atm. Some on my course are 28, some on other courses are 40+ in my department (quite a lot actually)
I really wouldn't let age hold you back. And you've clearly got the intelligence to do well, I say go for it!*
