Coyote? Lawyer? Prime Minister? Or marry a rich guy...?

During my holidays I have to write my personel statement, I know right, the clue is in the name, H O L I D A Y!!! There should be no work, and especially not something as stressfull as this.
Now I am excited for University (I've never been more terrified in my life) and I know exactly want I wanna do with my life (Nope, nadda, not a clue, is being a Princess a degree?) so you can understand why I am finding it a little difficult to write my personnel statement.

When I was a little girl I went through all the regular thoughts small kids have about growing up; Vet, check. Farmer, check. Pop star, check. But I also had a few unusual ones too, such as Princess (I am still convinced ddep down that my real parents will find me and I will one day ascend to the throne) and more bizzarely, Coyote. Now for those of you in the dark, I am not talking about the dog, I didnt wanna be Wiley Coyote, thats for sure. I am talking about the film Coyote Ugly, those Coyotes. Now I know that most of you will be horrified that an 8 year old wanted to be a Coyote, but it was one of my favourite films (still is) when I was younger, and my parents were the kind to let you watch any film you wanted as long as it wasn't violent (or James Bond, weird I know). And if you think about it, it does look kinda fun, if you are oblivious to all other conitations that go with the profession, but somehow I think if I turned around now and said to my parents I was uping sticks to New York to become an actual Coyote, I think they would object, now I am 17, and practically a grown women.

So what does that leave me with? A boring ol' job? I love history, but will a history degree get me anywhere? And Geography? Art? Maths? What on earth am I gonna do? Why do they make you decide now? My Mum is 50 and she still doesn't know what she wants to do, how is a 17 year old supposed to know what she wants to do? Really deep down, I have always wanted to be a housewife, have a bunch of kids and look after them until they leave the nest. But what University will except me if I wirte that? I know I am not the only one, tonnes of my friends ave no idea what they want to do, but we have to decide, now.

Personally I have decided to apply for law, as this combines a lot of things I like to do, with the ability to help people, and that is why, when I write my personnel statement, I will be writing about how I want to study the law, and you know what, it may not be as glamorous as a princess, but it may just be much more rewarding, H x
