College Calls

The hols have been fab but in a way I’m quite glad to be back at college. At least I get to see all the friends who haven’t been around in the hols, so that’s cool.

I’m doing A levels but best not talk about those. I got reasonable grades at AS but am not really academic like some of the bright kids. Not sure that I want to go to uni but I’m keeping my options open as my mum says. She and dad didn’t go to uni so they’d like me to be the first in the family I think, but let’s see how it goes. I may be completely sick of studying by then.

I haven’t really decided what I want to do when I leave but this is the year when I have to think about that. It’s difficult at 17 because some things sound glam but could be really boring. And I don’t like to be bored.

Flo seems to have her future mapped out. She wants to be a lawyer like her dad. He’s a barrister and earns squillions. She’s doing A level law and some other subjects for bright people, then she’s going to uni. Don’t know which one, I guess it depends on her grades.

On the other hand, I don’t have a clue. I really like animals so perhaps I could do something like dog grooming or even veterinary nursing or working in a dog stud or something. I like horses too so perhaps I could get a job with them. I don’t think it pays much though so that could be a stumbling block as I like to spend.

I keep thinking I should be able to find a way to make money online. Now I’m learning to do my own blog, I may branch out and find out how to have a proper website to make some money. Perhaps I could sell something. But what? That’s always the problem but I guess I could work something out.

Now I have homework so got to get to that. When I’ve finished maybe I’ll give that money-making idea some thought. There must be a way to make squillions online mustn’t there? Perhaps me and Flo could work on it together. I’ll do the donkey work and she can come up with the bright ideas – team work.
