Hello I'm 16 years old and I've finished school, and I'm now wanting to do a course in child care to become a nursery nurse but now I don't want to do that course anymore.
But the problem is I've already got a space for the child care course and I'm wanting to change it for a computering course but I'm not sure what to do? I mean how do I tell my mum and the College that I want to swap courses?
Also when I'm at college, what will I wear? I don't have a clue and what sort of clothes? If you can help me please do. Please help me!
Dear Confused Teengirl,
You certainly are confused. I think you should take stock of yourself. First write down all the things that you would like to do/be. Then start eliminating the one program that you are least interested in and ask yourself "WHY" and write down the honest answer.
Then do the same with each profession and write the answers "for" and "against". Speak with your parents or your school counselor, which you should have done before at the very beginning of the last year, but it is not too late.
As for the clothing that is required at college, it is no different than what you usually wear. When you get to the campus you will see what the other girls wear and you can do the same.
First decide of your future. And if you try something and you find that you chose the wrong field, you can always change your course. It is done all the time.
