Two AS Levels? I can't actually remember.
I fell out with education when I started my GCSEs. Just suddenly hit this stonewall for studying subjects I loathed, and I had two teachers in particular that ruined subjects I loved. As such, I went from an A* student down to Cs and for some reason decided to go to 6th Form. I regret going to 6th Form because my heart wasn't really in it and personal problems marred my second year before I dropped out. Went back to College two years later, suffered a personal tragedy, dropped out... dropped back in and just couldn't bridge the age gap with the rest of my classmates - I was there to study, learn, get **** done and they were just there to **** around. I was studying 'Advanced Video Production', and as such there was a ****-ton of group work involved. It's one thing doing group projects that are written assignments, but its another when it involves shooting/editing/dragging loads of gear about.
These days I work as a 'Marketing Assistant' for a niche IT Recruitment agency. I do a bit everything, really; statistics, SEO/copywriting, admin, organising conferences/marketing material, coughteachingIThowtodotheirjobscough and so on. My wage is atrocious (it's actually below minimum wage - but that's another story) but it's a stepping stone to much greater and better things.
I'm about to start learning German come the end of the month, and if that goes well I'm hoping to go German - Spanish - Japanese. It'll take a while, but it'll definitely be worth it, let's just hope I haven't lost my flair for language!
