    Letme give you the rundown (be prepared), I have very bad anxiety and I overthink so any decision making affects my sanity significantly, please keep this in mind. I am thinking of studying Eng lit or Theology (w/ ethics and philosophy):

    Eng - I am not the most well read and I haven't read as much as I used to more recently due to the tress of exams etc. I still love books but whenever I speak to someone thinking of doing english/who does english they talk about how their passion for novels is what made them want to do it. Also, what is the exams like at uni? I love contemporary texts and exploring themes, particularly: gender and patriarchy as well as race. Postcolonial novels are quite fascinating. Not a fan of poetry and definitely not medieval text but I'm hoping medieval isn't a constant thing throughout the course. Also I've always liked history so I know a lot of research on context is part of English.

    Theology: I've always been good at RS and I do enjoy the subject. I'm not sure if Philosophy at uni would f with my head though, especially the complexity of arguments with words I don't get. I never thought to study theology before and I'm not sure if it would bore me?

    I've legit done all the research you're meant to but I can't commit and nothing really stands out to me, I feel a levels have drained all the passion I had. I take eng lit, rs and socio at a level. I'm hoping to go into teaching following uni (not sure primary or secondary). I dropped history as the topics didn't appeal to me but I loooooved it at GCSE
