I've just finished my second year of university and the biggest thing I've learnt so far is that I have absolutely no interest in pursuing a career in my chosen subject.
Admittedly that's still a pretty daunting thing to think about. The fact that I've invested such a huge amount of time and money into something that has just never felt 'right' is a pretty big thing to accept and it's something that I've felt an odd sense of guilt about for a long time now. I found myself feeling under such a huge amount of pressure to have everything sorted and going according to plan - the fact that I didn't actually have a plan was only a minor flaw. The truth is that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing from one day to the next.
It was only when I started opening up and talking about it that I realised how many other people are on a similar wavelength. Just because you've started down a certain path doesn't mean that you can't tread backwards and choose a completely different avenue later on. I've changed a lot in just in the short space of time that I've been writing my blog, so it's fairly illogical to assume that most of us find ourselves on the same path that we started on a few years down the line. Realising that it's okay (or even normal) to feel that way has been such a relief.
