Well chaps/chapesses whilst sat a fortnight ago at work bored to to tears I finally decided enough was enough and to change my direction.

Now dont get me wrong im grateful for the job I have and it pays fairly well and tbf the company really looks after thier staff. But its something I fell into to pay the bills after leaving the military and that has been the over riding factor in my employment since.

But I have an itching ( not that kind:cool:) to be doing something else preferably out doorsy / naturish ( excuse the wenglish) and there is only one way to do that and its back to school.

So last week I applied to Leicester uni for thier hnc in global ecology and wildlife conservation and got the paperwork through this morning saying ive been accepted so im buzzing right now and cant wait to start...

Stay safe all

Congrats and I hope it works out for you, I found my degree in conservation and woodland management very interesting, but sadly the job opportunities very slim

Ok thanks for all the kind words guys.

Now in bit of a dilemma tho.

3 years ago I applied for a position of trainee train driver and passed all the tests but told at the end well done but all vacancies have been filled. So heard nothing more and put it out of my head.

Cue yesterday and an unknow number ringing my mobile. Now dont normally answer unknown numbers but something said pick it up.

Long story short subject to a medical they want me to start in November. Now after training the financial jump to where I am now would be almost rockstar but was duecto start my hnc in October.

Dont you love the way life throws these decisions and pathways at you. Not the first time this has happened.

What would you do

Best job ever took about 18 months all told to qualify back in may. Anyone fancy a career change let me know i know of one company recruiting atm and no previous qualifications needed and no upper age limit.

Heres to the next steps
