Question Career or friendships - November 23rd 2015, 01:11 PM

I go to college at the moment. The course I'm doing is.. Kinda bad. We only come in every morning and we don't really learn very much and spend a lot of time doing very little. We also have a lot of trips out of hours that are very hard for me to get to. Overall it's quite a bad course.on the plus I always have a good time and have some great friends. Esspecially one guy who we really hit off and get along very well. If I left I'd miss him so much. When I don't see/speak to him for a day I miss him. Recently I found an apprenticeship option for a local nursery that want someone. I don't know whether I could apply to it as my course is so bad. But if I left it would probably be good although I'd miss my friends esspecially the guy so so so much. And it isn't like we'd be able to meet up as we live miles away and many other complcated reasons. But basically we'd never see each other again. So what do you think? Should I apply? I also want to be a nursery school or childcare job so that's my main interest

By course, are you meaning your area of study or a particular class you're in? Sorry, the meaning of this word varies, and I want to make sure I understand your question.

You can always keep in touch with this friend! Unfortunately, friendship is a lot more difficult in adulthood. In high school/secondary school, you're stuck with the same people all the time and over time you can develop great relationships. But in college, it's important to stay in touch with old friends, and this can be really hard. But ask for his number, and hang out with him outside of class! If you two really hit it off, he'd want to hang out outside of class.

Well, you can always try to stay on touch, even if you are not in the same course. It's hard and only few frinedships survive it, but those that are important to you will. Especially today with facebook and mobil phones and such.

Appart from that, there is no good answer to your question, as only you yourself know what's more important to you. It really depends on the person.
Personaly I would go after the career if it's the area/job you are chasing for. But I have a friend who would rather stay with his friends.
It really depends. Would you rather do something you don't like with the people you love or do something you love with people you don't like.
That's very black and white right now, because you may meet people you really like at the job or discover awesome things that will make you love the course, but that what it boils down to.
Not what we think but waht is the most important to you.

It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!
