    Was medically deferred from the military - planned to go to university afterwards anyway though, but my whole career trajectory has changed now from engineering to high-finance.

    only way to become a social worker. if they're were aprentiships though I still would probably go to uni for the atmosphere and social side.

    all the unis that do social work courses are a bit **** though but that goes with the territory

    The first line says it's unresolved.
    There was a guy from hp who tried to solve it, but that proof was flawed

    I wanted a backup plan if my career goals fell through.

    They did.

    So did my degree.
