The pressure is on at school at the moment since I’m choosing my 20courses😣
I thought I’d share with you what my ideas were at the beginning and why and how they have changed to the decision I’m currently making🙆🏻
1: English teacher in France🇫🇷
A few years ago I wanted to teach English in France, but I changed my mind because
1: although I miss France, I’m unsure about living there again
2: and if I ended up leaving France, there was no other place I wanted to teach English
3: I wasn’t sure about teaching overall
2: A Clinical Psychologist🔎
I wanted to be one for quite a while but after all the meetings I have had talking to actual psychologists on how to be one, it was quite complicated.
1: It’s hard to get into the course, even if you get sufficient point, not everyone can get in and is selected randomly.
2: A lot of experience is needed and I didn’t even have my work experience there.
3: It’s a long long looong road before you can become one and I’m slightly impatient
3: A Journalist📝
I wanted to be one for so long, I still would love to work as one, as I love every aspect of the career p but changed my mind recently because they pay is too low for me to be able to live in a different country or a home of my own.
!My current decision!
I wanted a job where I could travel, earn enough money and still be creative.
So, I decided to get a Bachelor of Arts degree and study Italian, Spanish and Engkish Lit! (As you can see, I loveee languages) and I want to work as an Interpreter!🤗
I love languages, I don’t struggle learning them and I have had experience working as a translator in UL (University of Limerick)🙆🏻
Where would I study this?
-UCC or NUIG
Although I wanted to study abroad, I am willing to study in Ireland and save up to move to a different country🌸
