    hi 
    to get the conversation going I’m  interested to hear what people here are studying/working in? if you are not yet out of school what do you think you might do?

    Great q! I’m dabbling in the marketing space but have also dabbled in photography and travel… so I guess I’ll come up with something eventually!

    What are you studying @jackh? Or what are you looking to do in your career? I know someone whose goal is just retirement lol

    Haha yeah I like that goal @Kit I’m studying primary teaching, I’m about to finish my degree. And I’m working at a cafe, which is really nice, I enjoy it.

    That’s awesome @jackh, how do you manage work and study?
    I’m studying a degree in social work and am in my 3rd year, with one more to go. I also have two part time jobs. I enjoy it all but it can be very stressful at times.

    @mak_trouble891 it can be crazy! I have constant reminders and alarms on my phone. I have almost made it to the end of my course – not long to go now.

    In case anyone is feeling worked up about not knowing what they want to do with their lives… I’m just gonna quote some lyrics from the Sunscreen Song:

    The most interesting people
    I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives
    Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don’t

    Primary teaching must be so hard @jackh! I would not have the tolerance for that!
