This year I applied through UCAS and deferred my entry till 2017 so I could take a gap year to earn money and support myself. The only issue is now I've had a few months to think about it, I really don't know whether I want to go or would be happy going.
Currently the only few positives to me going are:
- It would make my family happy,
- Life experience,
- Get away from home and stand on my own two feet,
However I am now beginning to question whether it's worth going just to make my family happy when something like this should be done for myself. I haven't withdrawn my application yet but I'm just really unsure about what to do. I think because I have no idea what I want to do with my future and if I wanted to get away from home that much I could save up to get my own apartment or something.
I don't know I'm just really lost and confused with the whole thing. My family isn't helping with advice because they're all pressuring me to go so I just wanted a second opinion really.
Is freshers still worth it?
