Evening folks, Currently I'm in an apprenticeship at college 'studying' IT. Basically I've always understood computers and took an interest to them, my family picked up on this and advised me to look for a career in IT. I was a little shit at school and didn't really give a flying **** what I did, this resulted in some poor-ish GCSE results.. hence no employment! Around 7 months ago now I was kindly given the opportunity to become an apprentice, aiming for the role of a Computer Technician, geeky.. I know! However I've always wanted to join the military since around the age of 9, my mother was kind of supportive in her own wierd way but always tried changing the subject rather quickly when discussing it. My father just smiled like it was just a joke, like I wasn't good enough? With all this in mind I applied for the apprenticeship and was accepted, I wanted to make my family proud. Now don't get me wrong, I am extremely thankful for them taking me on and giving me an opportunity, but christ, I've never been so bored in all my ******* life. Everytime someone ask's me how the job is going, I say one thing but think another because I don't want to disappoint. I'll be a qualified computer technician shortly but **** me I want more out of life than fixing machines stocked up with fake celeb porn and cleaning sweaty keyboards. Basically, I'm ready to look in to a career I know I'll ******* love and get into because I want to. My question is, is there any roles I could take on that would require certain skills I have learnt? I don't want to be stood around all day, I like to see the action and make a difference. Just to add, I've recently turned 20.. I want to make the fooking most of it! Any input is greatly appreciated.
