I've got a bit of a dilemma.
I'll give you all a bit of background information. I'm 17 and I'm currently at college doing 4 AS
Levels. Ever since I was about 10, I've wanted to be a flight attendant, I suppose its my dream. My mum knows I want to be an F/A, and she's been very supportive until recently.
Anyway, my tutor told me that she thinks I should maybe apply to university, because she seems to think I'd suit it and have the potential and all that. I told my mum, and we got a bit carried away talking about open days for universities, and applying and such and such, yet really, I'm not too sure about the whole thing. We've arranged to go to the open days.
Recently, mum's been saying things like she really wants me to get a good job with a good wage, job security and all that, and all the benefits that university will bring. I know she just wants what she thinks is best for me, but I kinda feel pressured into going to university as many of my friends will be going, and I just feel I have to do the family proud, I know that sounds a bit wierd.
So, a bit of a dilemma really. Should I go to university, for the wrong reasons but come out with a better paid job that I don't enjoy at the end? Or should I do what I want and get job satisfaction, instead of what others want for me?
What would you do if you were in my situation?
Thanks for any replies
