Desperate help needed

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, so I've been contemplating leaving college in search of a decently paying job (I'm 17) and as I've previously mentioned, I have severe motivational issues when it comes to school work and revision.
    I've just had a long talk with my parents about moving out and living elsewhere whilst working. I know it will be difficult due to the economic status of England currently but I intend to save up prior to this move. I simply do not enjoy college anymore, at AS I got AABC in Biology, Psychology, Maths and Chemistry respectively and I have no hopes for completing A2 due to my mental state.
    I'm working a decent job, at £5.60 an hour for my age is very good although I work few hours every week due to rules at college. There are local places for rent at a decent price and my partner is also looking for a place.
    The main issue therein lies in that I feel this is my only option now as I've fallen into a spiral of depression that has me constantly procrastinating because I don't want to fail or continue the way I'm living for another four to five years.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated, I'm not exactly in the greatest position at the moment and could really do with some help.

    Thank you for reading.
