Nearly, ahem, 50 and still lookingMy nephew is taking a year out from uni just now after having a bit of a breakdown. After 2 years of geology he finally succumbed to the stress that the expectations of his parents and peers had created. He feels he was channelled into uni at an age when he wasn't sure what he wanted to do in life. He still doesn't but I've told him that at 21, he's still got plenty of time to find his niche. Some of us never do.
Travel and voluntary work are both admirable pursuits but you need to have a way of funding them. Most of us have to balance the pursuit of happiness with putting food on the table and a roof over our heads. If those things coincide then you have it made.Oh, and another thing.
If a school-leaver lacks the qualifications for 'a career job' then I would also recommend voluntary work combined with travelling. This will open many doors, give you friends and memories for life, and experiences 'normal types' could only dream of.
And along the way, you could very well find the motivation and inspiration to make a difference, and find THAT job that is right for you.
