There is a point in a teenager, soon-to-be adult, in which he or she has to chose a path to follow.

Well, that's me alright.

I have half a month to think before applying to university.
I always said that I would follow Law but as the time for the decision comes nearer I can't help but to feel helpless and confused.
With my grades I could get in any university I want within the humanistic path but what if I fail, what if I suck at it ?

As much as I think of it, I can't see myself doing anything! I can't picture myself being a lawyer or a judge, or a teacher or anything!

I don't know if fear is clouding my mind or not but at the moment I don't know what to do with my life.

Thank you all for your comments!<br />
I actually started uni a month ago... it's HARD!!! Really hard... <br />
Not that great but I'm learning new things...<br />
I hope in time I'll see if I really want to be in Law business...<br />
till then, thank you for your advices!!!!

Maybe you should have a years break before starting university, and explore yourself a little, find out what you want out of life, and what interests you, what stirs your passions, and what you don't want out of life?<br />

I know that's something that would have benefited me, although wisdom in hindsight has its limitations.

Ever considered becoming a Pharmacist? Very good money - can even own your own pharmacy. Normal hours. A little math and science skills required - you're smart you can probably do this. Part time work even pays great.

Naw, sweetie, I'm sure many people feel this way, so don't worry. ... Take a deep breath; think about what subjects you like and what major are related to them. Is Law one of them?... Then check up what universities offer Law as a major. Compare the universities: Location, cost, reputation etc. Find the ones that suits you (Try to get extra information from those universities that you're interesting in, check their website for broschures and don't hesitate to mail them to get extra information). One always fears big decisions, but with big decisions come grande opportunities, sweetie! GOod luck
