    Okay so I’m at college doing English Literature, English Language and currently photography.... but the photography teacher is nasty and the course in general isn’t appealing to me. It’s making me really uncomfortable and I’m getting really bad anxiety because of it.
    I don’t want to do anything else other than my 2 English courses.... what do I do?

    Drop photography, if you enjoy it that much then make up an independent portfolio.

    I had this issue when my school wouldn’t let me drop a subject. Eventually I got a note from my doctor where I was becoming so stressed and they let me do it. Is this something you could try?

    Or could you switch it out to something similar like media studies?

    I’ll try with the note. The photography teacher is the teacher for all media related subjects so that’s not an option.. I’ll see what I can do
