So my life plans....didn't go as planned (standard).
I have been extremely fortunate to put a deposit down on my first home at just 21yrs old. I am now 24. Whilst I have a pretty ok job, great work-balance life, decent pay for what i do and i'm debt free.......i'm also stuck in a rut and bored, so very very bored.
Ever since A-levels I wanted to become a Midwife but for millions of reasons i faced a variety of obsticles and had to put my dreams aside. I still work in healthcare but I have hit a wall, i cannot progress any further or earn anymore money (which is really hard when you are running a home single-handedly alone). For natural career progression in my current field i now need an NMC registration.
But with fees now being just over £9,000 a year...and in some places over £11,000!
The thought of the debt i'd rack up is making me feel ill. Sure, student loans and maintenance loans are there. But to run my house alone and the costs of looking after the animals i have, i need to be bringing home £2,000 a month just to live.
It would be a massive struggle, and all the perks i have now will go, but at the end of it i'll have the freedom to grow and not feel stuck in a rut!
Is it worth it? Has anybody else been in a similar situation and managed it?
Does anyone manage to cope having a mortgage on their own AND going to uni full time? Watch
