What to do!? - July 14th 2010, 11:58 AM

Soo I have messed up yet another year of college due to being in hospital so I missed my exams.
I am really disappointed in myself and I am trying not to beat myself up about it but it isn't anyone's fault apart from my own.
So I'm debating what to do. I want a career in Music or Drama.
I can either take a gap year and then go to college to retake the course I failed this year and go straight to uni where I want to do a degree in Music Performance and Drama combined.
I can take a gap year and go to uni straight away (fingers crossed) but on a foundation degree which is the same as a normal except you do an extra year. The only thing concerning me with this is I did a foundation degree before and it wasn't challenging enough for me so I got bored and ended up leaving the course.
Either way I think I need a gap year to get myself sorted.

I'm not saying this because i'm high of myself but I am actually a very bright student but I feel like I'm coming up to 19 this summer and I don't seem to be heading where I want to be heading..

Any opinions?

I'd go to a foundation course and if it's too easy just stick with it and get a part-time job too fill your time, or join a Uni society (like a language society to learn a language) in your spare time and keep your brain occupied.

You could possibly find one in clearing this year too

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.
