I want to make a life changing decision but I don't have the willpower to do it. The deadline to make this change is in two weeks and I afraid I won't get my shit together and end up living an unhappy life. Where can I find someone that will help me?
The problem is it's not just a pull the trigger choice. I want to study in a different country but the whole process of moving, applying, being alone, leaving my GF and not being certain of my fate is confusing and scary.
Are you in school/college/uni? See a counsellor. Are you religious? See a clergyman. Do you have a family member or wise old friend whose judgment you trust? Borrow their ears for a half-hour while you talk out your questions - just by listening they may help you work out your thoughts.
I finished HS last year and I'm on my gap year now trying to decide what I want to do with my future. I've decided on pharmacy as it's what interests me most and I'm trying to decide where I will study.
I'm currently living in Poland and finished HS here but I grew up in Canada and would like to return there for university, or at the very least study in a different EU country.
On paper it seems like a pretty easy this or that choice but I'm worried about so many things. What if I won't be able to take the stress of having to study and suddenly having to live on my own? What if I decide pharmacy is not the path for me. What if I won't be able to deal with all the tuition costs or not get a student loan for studying in Canada? What if I don't get accepted into pharmacy school in Canada as it's very competitive? I could go on but I think you guys get the point.
Poland is a much safer option (free tuition, know I'll be able to get in, parents supporting me) and I have a wonderful GF here but I can't stand it any longer here and I feel like I'm throwing my life away.
Do you have a canadian citizenship ? I also grew up in Canada , got a citizenship but returned to my homeland Albania where I did my HS.Then I'm currently in germany learning German which is a pain in the ass and hopefully entering an uni in september.I made a mistake.It would be better if I went to Canada for a uni..So it's better for you to apply for a scholarship and go to Canada (if you're a Canadian citizen)
Yeah I do! I don't think it's that easy to get a scholarship. I don't really have any reason to get one. I had good grades but nothing on the level of scholarship good. I'd most likely have to take a student loan.
Why are you regretting going to uni in Germany? It's free over there. I'd possibly study in Germany or another EU country but pharmacy is only offered in the country's official language and I'd have to take another year off learning a language.
