@khaleesi_18
Yeah I'm going to leave my apprenticeship and just do some casual work for a bit, not be tied down with study and all that, just enjoy myself a bit, I have heaps of volunteering, music stuff and travelling that I want to do so I'll just have time to do work and do the things I like.

@j95 man that's really awesome! I'm happy for you - I think it takes a lot of courage to take that first step and realise that you'd like to try something else, and follow a different path. It sounds like you'll be getting a lot of life experience too!

I like what I'm doing but I have so much other stuff I want to try @khaleesi_18 there is nothing wrong with dipping your toe in the water and trying out a few different things. I sort of would of liked to finish my apprenticeship but I can always go back to where I left off, the option is always there.  I always thought I would be in construction forever but things change, time to try some new stuff while I'm young.

Absolutely @j95! You never know what you might find that you also enjoy! That's great that you have your apprenticeship/construction still as another option (just in case you find that you would like to go back into that work). What sort of casual work are you thinking of doing?

@khaleesi_18 cafe or bar work, even something in music, or something outdoors like working in nursery or something that would relate a bit to what I've studied in my landscaping apprenticeship so would be like the best of both.

At least I know I have a job while I look for something else

Sounds great @j95! Super stoked for you and your work plans - they all sound like really interesting options where you'll learn heaps (and hopefully meet some cool people too).
