Dislikedi think i just read my story...
i have situation almost like you..and to be honest mine is much more terrible,, i'm not gonna tell my story, but hey i still survive.. atleast till now.. (i graduate from November last year ),
i believe to myself and i want to make my dream come true..so...LETS MOVE !!!
ps: if you get pressure from family or friends just close your ears open your eyes and keep moving forward. i believe you could pass all of this..Ignored
What is the point of life if you are not following your dreams,right?
P.S. but to get there you do need to be strategic and thoughtfull not to crazy optimistic...IMHO
