So im in my first year of sixth form, im studying graphic design, film and photography. The only subject in which im enjoying is photography, i feel lke film and graphics takes up a ridiculous amount of time and effort, and im not actually even average at it. To make matters worse, it feels like whenever i do succeed in these artistic subjects, im always like 'what am i actually going to do after college with these A-Levels?'.

Its starting to really depress me because im an extremely realistic and practical person. I believe that the career/thing you choose to do in your life should be secure, good but hard work and decent pay. I dont want a 100k a year job or anything, but i want a job which is in demand and it wont be hard for me to find somewhere to work after uni. I feel like all arty jobs, even being something more practical like a graphic designer, is extremely risky. For a start, im nothing special and nor is my portfolio. so my chances in these markets are very bad.

I was thinking about carrying on with photography, dropping film and graphics for Law and Politics. I've always enjoyed learning about the law, and i use to be a really good member in my high school debate club. I was also really talented in essay writing and english language. I think im a good learner and i feel like after a bad experience this year, ill be putting 100% into these new subjects.

Do you think i should continue with this decision?
