Options and mistakes

This post is about why I picked the childcare course Im on the now, it is one of my biggest regrets in life, as I've never wanted to work with children, but it was my only option which would allow me to leave school.

I was sat in maths one afternoon, our teacher was off yet again, and the supply we had was the old grandad type. Nice, but far too soft.

I wanted to leave school at the end of 4th year, but my mum didn't agree. I eventually decided I would do my last year, but as soon as that year started I knew it wasn't for me. I had no interest in school, knowing I wanted to leave.

That afternoon, my friend had said she had been accepted on her course that she'd applied for but there were still places on it. I knew this would be my only way out, so that lesson I printed of an application form and filled it in. Not long after I got a letter saying I had been accepted on an unconditional offer. I knew I didn't want to do childcare but can honestly say as much of a mistake I made, its been one heck of an experience.

I no longer feel stupid with only average grades, now I work harder and get above average, I am not miss brainy but I work hard for it, and the results are showing it. However, I've applied for a completely different course next year, with something I want to do.

My advice though, is don't apply for a course, just because a friends on it. It will do you know benefits. Just because you won't know anyone on the course doesn't mean you won't fit in. :)
