What have you spent the last 4 years of your life doing? It certainly wasn't uni work, travelling or having a job? Why are you not already doing those 3 things(working learning volunteering)? Why are you comparing yourself to people who obviously have something planned, even if nothing comes of it? No one knows what they are going to do until they are already there and decide to stay there, so go pick something and do it, your 22 you can just drop it and try something else.
Why did it go quick? Why didn't you do anything? Why don't you find it stimulating?
Do a Tefl or something and teach abroad for a year or whatever, it not like an English degree is going to get you much outside of teaching. I know a girl that did her English degree then did a mental health nursing one, much happier. Are you sure you even want to do English, never mind not knowing what college to pick?
Good idea, guy I work with dropped out of his construction course to get his truck driving license, much better fit for him rather than further education.
I agree, all of this opportunity has people wondering if they are really getting the best deal from their life and constantly compare themselves to others to base their own success on. At the same time though, opportunity is just that and allows people to find what they really want to do. Getting them to understand that everyone's place is just as important is the hard part.
mad and bad, we all know its more than that.
Why no prospects? Did you ever go to your schools career advisor? Your still young, plenty of time to apply for programs, travel, interns, even go for some jobs within reach of your degree even for experience
Why Cam? You can always go for a masters after durham if you really want the institution under your belt. Everything you said is uncertain, take Durham and maximise your time there. With, cs, whats the difference in the end?
>last meme arrow
literally doing better than 90% of uni students
No, unless your going for more reasons than just 'education' e.g life style, travel opportunities, interships ect. What is it about the UK you cant do at home?
>comparing yourself to peers to your detriment
pointless there will always be someone better, just do it at your pace, at the end of the day your the one that sets it. You want to leave, so leave. Plenty of poor euros are in UK unis and due to their drive to live and study abroad it puts them above many others for work ethic leading them to good lives after uni.
better to leave than stay, plenty of people drop out and change so dont feel bad about it if you do. Why are you sure translation is the right place though? Not the first thing I think of when hear humanities.
