Going insane with jobs

Here it is

Currently work at Santander on the cards department, taking payments etc

Have a degree in web design but I dunno something just isnt happening at the moment, dont seem to enjoy what I am doing, seems to be an endless cycle of doing tutorials, coding online as a means of making a decent wedge.

I have been looking at some different careers lately as I feel I'll be hitting suicide watch by the time the next month comes If i stay in the mindset I am currently in

With that said I am across a role as "football development officer" working with anyone in relation to football, doesnt mean coaching but rather supporting and planning events, working with kids and teens etc I guess trying to get people more active.

My friend although not currently working in the field as graduated and says its possibly one of the best careers out there especially if your like most lads into football.

I was released from Middelssbough football acadamey at around 16, and have always played football at a high level, although I'm not making excuses I feel i have been miss advised by people in the past regarding careers and thought because I like to go on the internet IT would be the best route for me.

I have chosen a part-time degree at a local college over 3 years. The problem I have facing is this.

I am 24 years old in 1 month or so and although i can earn maybe 750 per month part-time somewhere and still rent a place, I got a feeling the misses is not going to be best pleased when shes wanting houses etc, but really do not want to disapoint anyone.

Obviously I've been a total idiot in choosen courses etc 

I have done the following

FD multimedia passed 2 year course
4 months advertising dropped out
6 months graphic design dropped out, could not get financed.

So i'm now in the position of looking at my options, having finally decided what I want to do, really unsure of the next step.

I would need to support myself financially until I finish college so 3 years with 2 days per week at college, but really not sure what to do

Anyone been in a similar position?

having changed careers after pretty much doing nothin for a few years?

cheers

    That doesn't mean he can't be unhappy in his job. When I was complaining in work that is was making me ill my boss used that excuse for basically treating me like a pr8ck, "oh you should be lucky to have a job in this current climate".

    Wanted to rip his f8cking head off

    Edit- I fully understand where you are coming from Drago and not having a job is something that I could never comprehend but I don't see others peoples misfortune as a reason to stop personal progression.

    Post is a little long-winded....

    To sum up:

    You want to return to education, how do you pay for it?

    Make sacrafices if its what you want.  Failing that, do one in your own time through the Open Uni for you can still work full-time, this is what I will be doing in September.

    Unaffiliated.

    Never, ever make career choices just to please someone else.

    I didn't like my job a while ago... to the point it was making me ill, ruining my social life etc...  So I quit (i was able to as have a lot of savings to fall back on).  Best thing I ever done.  I have many opportunities in the pipeline for when i'm fully recovered from surgery, and haven't once looked back and wished i'd stayed.  Quit man.. just quit.
