Now this basically all boils down to a career path. I'm 21, I know it's young but I just feel stuck. I feel it's too late for me to change career now. Really it's not, but I feel everything is very limited or that everything costs so much money.I have so much I want to get out of life. I just don't know how. I want to express myself so much and do the things I want to— Tasha (@itsatashathingg) 3 May 2017
In the UK you leave school at 16 and then go on to college or to do something like an apprenticeships. Now this basically all boils down to a career path. I'm 21, I know it's young but I just feel stuck. I feel it's too late for me to change career now. Really it's not, but I feel everything is very limited or that everything costs so much money if you are an adult learner.
My problem is how do I get there?
How do I achieve what I want to set out to do?
I have 3 dream careers. The first is to be a receptionist or work in some kind of office. Sounds simple. My Mum is an administrator, I love what she does and I could just imagine myself doing her job. I don't know why I just don't apply and see what happens.
The second is a career choice I have had since I was a young girl, to be a makeup artist. It's obvious I love makeup and have an unhealthy obsession with it. I would love to be able to do the whole package, hair, makeup and nails. It would be a dream come true.
The last is a dream that is highly unlikely. This is to become a full time blogger. I'd love to be able to blog and look after Darcie. It would be wonderful.
I think it's so hard to choose a career now. There's so much out there. So many doors to open. So many different paths to choose, but how? How at 16 can you truly determine what you would like to do. I know it is never really too late, but sometimes it just feels it. Even now there's so much to do and there is so little time.
I feel there has to be a job I am made for, but what is it? Does anyone else ever feel like this?
If you could choose your dream career what would it be?
