    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 I haven't withdrawn my application yet but I'm just really unsure about what to do.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.
