I'm at a university studying Business Management, working part time in retail. I basically hate my life. I have had a lot of trouble finishing school because of a combination of bad decisions and depression/anxiety issues. I am doing pretty well mentally and in school and work now, but I feel stuck.
I want to finish school and get out into the real world as soon as possible. My work background and most of my previous coursework is in television and radio production. But I feel (maybe imaginary) pressure from family to stay in business management. I'm also completely terrified to switch to what I want because of the economy and the difficulty finding work in my field to begin with.
Switching majors to television would greatly reduce my course load and shorten my stay at college. Given the unpredictability of getting work in that field, I feel paralyzed by fear. Can you please provide some advice? I also want to add that I hate the town I live in (very poor and high crime issues) and want to leave as soon as possible for this reason. Any advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
