    recently i've completely changed my idea on the future career i want to pursue and i dont know whether i should continue my education. im doing my core GCSE's and i just feel like its an utter waste of time and health. i will only get a B in english and fail the rest so i dont see any point in continuing. i would love to do an art based job, something creative as that is where my passion is. i was going to go on to study A levels and perhaps become a teacher or lawyer but i think doing those jobs will destroy me as a person. im really confused as to what to do. I really dislike college as well as all the people in my classes are horrible and the classes are really unnecessary, i would love it if i could just take the exam and not have to turn up every day of the week at 9am. it is causing me a great amount of anxiety and stress and i cant help but feel depressed now, i feel really lost. i want to be able to have a job that is stable so i can have a comfortable life but pursuing my passions wont pay the bills. DX please could someone help me. Thank you.
