    I know I've not been about much lately, trying to sort out what I'm doing next year but am at work every day and am away from home from 10am-6pm everyday, sometimes 10pm. I will try to reappear more often though, not that I've been here long enough to be missed..yet!!

    Anyway, I was wondering if I could be cheeky and ask career advice even though I've not posted so much lately??

    Basically, I'm a straight A student, had bad personal issues and wont be going on to do a medical degree as it wouldn't be anywhere I would want to go and I feel I would be hindered and unable to get to where I want.

    I adore horses but there isn't much money in that work, I've looked into equine physio but its such a long path to get into good money and rather risky. People have said have I thought of being a counsellor or something, but I don't know.

    A huge part of me what's to do something that could make a difference to people, and be appreciated, hence why I wanted to be a pediatric surgeon. I get so bored and then I sink into a really dark miserable place, I need something to keep me thinking and that requires hard work kind of thing.

    At the minute my thoughts are business degree, managing director kind of thing but I can't see myself feeling like I enjoy the job and considering how I get like, I really need to find something that would fulfil my needs in that respect.

    Any brain boxes out there with ideas??

    Genuinely, I am such a hard worker and a go getter, I finished school and am working every day these holidays and feel fine about it, I'm a total go getter and will work as hard as required, I just can't find anything suitable...

    Would you rather be hands on or behind the scenes in some way?

    In a way, both!! I think probably the majority of the time I'd rather be behind the scenes making the hands on work be a success etc, but I wouldn't say a complete no to hands on work... People have described me as bossy, but I know what I want and what needs doing, and when for, and I make sure its done well.

    How about something in care for the elderly, It is run by businesses now quite a lot and it's a growing business :)
