Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always wanted to be a PE teacher. I used to play ‘teachers’ all the time, there would be registers of made up names everywhere in the house, little bits of paper “work sheets” in every draw. It wasn’t till recently that my future plans changed. I passed all my GCSEs with good results and went straight into the sixth form of my school because it was the thing to do, and because I really hadn’t researched any other routes. I lasted a year, my two PE teachers turned into complete arse holes and I began to hate my PE lessons, it became quite serious. I would feel sick, light headed or have a headache before and during the entire lesson because I just did not want to be there, sometimes I wouldn’t even go to school on the days I had double lessons. I spoke to my parents and my tutor and decided that it was best for me to leave after I had taken my AS levels and go to college. Safe to say I got awful AS results because I had no motivation to try, I didn’t even pick up my results, they got sent to me because I forgot about them. Leaving for college was the best decision I have EVER made.
Everything about college made me happy. My class are the loveliest group of people ever and we all get on so well, unlike school where there are cliques. The attitude is a lot more relaxed and the teachers actually care about the students and less about what grades they can get to make the school look good. It was going to college that made me rethink my direction in life. I scrapped the PE teacher idea because I didn’t want to end up an ass hole like mine were. I now want to be a personal trainer, next year I am going to study 3 courses in personal training, health and nutrition and sports massage and I’m not going to university. It’s just not for me. My family have always been into touring car racing and recently it clicked that I would love to specialise in working specifically with racing drivers in the motor sport industry as a personal trainer, as well as being able to give them health and nutrition advice and fix any muscle injuries.
I work part time every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in my local city centre in a shop, I used to enjoy it but these days I’m really only in it for the money while I’m studying. I don’t see my family as much as I would like to because I work all weekend every weekend and that gets me down. I can’t wait for the day where I can wake up on the first day of doing a job that I actually have an interest in, turn up, start my day thinking “Wow, I’ve finally made it. I’m living my working dream”
Until then, I continue to study hard and get the best grades I can get so I can go to an interview and say “No, I didn’t go to university and get a degree but look what else I can offer your company!”
Here’s to 2012, and the next steps!
