“I wanted to be a professional footballer when I grew up. I realised that I wasn’t good enough so when I finished school I went travelling for a year and mucked around doing odd jobs here and there. I’ve just started a new role as a pensions administrator – a proper job! I think if I could live my last few years again I would try work out what I wanted to do at an earlier age. If I had done my mucking around earlier I would’ve been[...more] #bristol #england #football #gapyear #properjob…

“I’m finding it hard to figure out who I am at the moment. I quit my job yesterday and broke up with my girlfriend last week. I really miss her. I’ve decided to head to Bolivia for three months to do some volunteer work, so hopefully this will give me the time and headspace I need to figure everything out.” #cheltenham #england #breakup #bolivia #headspace #girlfriend

“I’m 43 and have worked in childcare for pretty much all my employable life. Sure, I’ve got that as a career, but I’m at a stage of my life where I’m left thinking ‘is that it?!’. I’ve hopefully still got another 40 years in me, so I feel I’m now searching for that something else to do with my life. I’ve got no idea what it is I’m looking for, but I’m hoping I’ll find it soon.” #cheltenham #england #childcare #searching #career

“When I was younger I was lured in to join an international prostitution ring with the promise of making a quick buck. My job involved me smuggling Nigerian woman into European countries where they were then sold for sex. As I should have expected, taking such a shortcut in earning a living brutally backfired on me. I lost all respect from the people I loved and I actually ended up losing the little money I had [...more] #london #england #nigeria #prostitution #pastor #god #shortcuts

“We’ve run our own potters business together since 1976. He always manages to annoy me one way or another. In fact I think it should be against the law for a married couple to go into business together! But we’re still here and we’re still smiling.” #cheltenham #england #smiling #business #marriage #potters

“A few years ago I decided to change my career from sales to fundraising. This meant I had to do a year of training; a year of not being able to afford any fun and having to snap up free dinners from friends when I got offered them. It was all worth it. I’m doing something I love now and I don’t care it pays less than my old sales job!” #england #charity #sales #fundraising #freedinners

“I like to draw people. The challenge of translating a person’s posture and facial expressions from what I see with my eyes onto paper really excites me. In five years I hope to be an animator working on video games or films.” #bristol #england #animation #drawing

“The hardest thing for me was being diagnosed with cancer at 14. What made it worse was that my friends then deserted me, which led to depression. I was fighting two enemies and in some ways the depression was the tougher of the two. I moved to Bristol from Paris a few weeks ago to study and help me improve my English. I see it as a new start. I’m still battling the cancer, but it’s going okay.” #bristol #england #cancer #depression #study #paris #newstart #inspiration

“I had my first shot of heroin when I was 14 years old. 18 years of drug addiction then took a hold of me. In 2003 I was the victim of a drug related attack which left me partially paralysed and sight impaired. I then lost my mum’s house to a drug raid. I decided enough was enough and decided to go clean. I’ve been off the drugs for almost three years now and I even sponsor addicts through various rehab programs. If I could give [....more]  #gloucester #england #drugs #rehab #heroin…

“I wish I hadn’t gone to college straight from high school. I think if I was at that stage of my life again I’d probably take a year or two out to decide what I wanted to focus on, rather than continuing my studies and being forced to choose broad subjects as the default option. Taking these subjects didn’t really help me with my future at all.” #cheltenham #england #studies #gapyear #future

“If there was one bit of advice I would tell the younger me, it would be to always listen to yourself, no matter who is telling you to do something. When I got married my father-in-law advised me to borrow money from a number of lenders to help fund our new mortgage. I did this, despite not feeling comfortable about doing so. Turns out it was the worst advice I’ve ever had. It was advice that led to..... [more] #england #mortgage #loan #debt #advice
