Nearly everyone in my year at school if off to University next year, many have felt pressured into going some believe its the only way to get a good job.

Not me

I've decided University won't benefit me as much, I want to do something 'different' for a year, I spoke to my careers teacher and he suggested a gap year with CSV a gap year group that will place you at a scheme to help those with problems, such as the homeless, youth offenders, or those with disabilities.

I'm happy with what I'm planning to do and thought I'd share, I'm hopefully going to be starting in September if everything goes to plan


So those of you in the UK who want to take a new direction in life, go to the CSV website and have a look around.

thanks for reading

Good for you UK Wizard. It was nice to meet you and I hope to see you next year

When you get back you are going to have to make 3 avatars a day to make up for your absence
.
Take care.

I'll still be here till September...so far away, but then theres a high possiblity of no ATS for between 6 to 12 months.

Still a longway way yet though, just thought i'd share my plans

You will still come even when you do that. The power of ATS will course through you and pull you back. Feel the light of the ATS CHAT! muahahahaah

I think it's great that you're doing this

Thanks for the kind words everyone


I'll be doing 6 to 12 months of hard work with people I don't know, with a high possibility of some people not getting along with me, but it'll be worth it.

I'm going for a couple of reasons, the first being I wanted to actually get out there and do something different while helping others and I wanted to gain 'life experience' living away from home relying on and helping others.

I honestly wish I had that conviction. A lot of times I feel pretty selfish although I really want things to change.

Good idea, and great action.

Good on you UK Wizard. Much respect! If I had a hat, I would take it off to you.

Good luck with it, I'm sure it will be a fantastic and fulfilling experience.

Right then, I've had my proper interview (better than just talking on the phone) and they are now creating a profile of me based on my interview and requests for the type of situation I'd like to be in.
Hopefully I'll be starting in September...yay
