Introduction

It’s 6.45 am and a burning bleep repeatedly shrieks in my ear, until I realise “No, its not a heart monitor in A&E,” but is my tiny, silver alarm clock. Now that I am just about conscious to the world outside my door, I give myself until 11 minutes to – 6.49 – for a brief yet cherished sleep.

At the moment, it seems to be an advertising creative, however only a few days ago it was a floor manager in a film set. There are so many careers to choose from that it really is difficult to decide even what GCSE choices to make as there is always the thought that you’ll want to do something completely different later on in life and those exams will have been pointless etc.
