    I have got three opportunities. The First may not be an opportunity at all.

    During my time in secondary school I was a kid without a plan, and a kid with little care for one. I had bigger issues such as the anxiety a lonely student has when he fears everyone in his class dislikes him, and he has no real social skill to improve upon that issue. That was just the start, the rest was enough to distract me from my duty as a student to learn and achieve the best grades possible. So almost like magic I came out of school with eight GCSE's, seven C's and one B in R.E.

    Luckily I was fortunate enough to work with my father for 3 months abroad. A job I probably wasn't qualified for but did anyway and came back out successfully. Now it's on my CV and it almost makes up for the poor grades.

    But I applied for a Visa the second time around to head back, do it again for a longer duration but was denied. Now what? I don't go to school, and I'm not in an apprenticeship scheme or have full time work.

    Which is to why I'm here. Three choices. the first opportunity that may not even happen which is to wait, be patient and there's hope that I may be able to do the same thing in Europe, but waiting too long will effect my other choices.

    My second choice, from February to September I have to manage to redo my GCSE'S. Sounds simple but to make it worth my while I have to manage many A's without the support of a school to go to everyday and only my dedication and smarts to pull me through. The third opportunity being finding an apprenticeship that'll except a sixteen year old but that isn't anything to do with building, or plumbing or anything alike (it's not for me).

    Which ever direction I take, the outcome is a mystery. Each one a good idea, but in the long term I have no clue.
    Can anyone help me, give advice possibly? I'd really appreciate peoples opinions. Thanks in advance to anyone that wants to help.
