|I hate prac!

The more and more I go to prac, the less and less I want to do social work. It's a little disappointing that I've only just figured that out now when I'm eight weeks away from finishing my degree. I wish I had known sooner so I could have figured out what I was going to do instead. Now I have no idea. My folks are not impressed - my dad keeps having a go at me about how much money they have spent putting me through uni and that they didn't do that for me to just waste it. Yet in the past (it was in anger, but still) my dad has actually said that I'm not going to be a good social worker. He is such a hypocrite!
The way I see it is, I'm not wasting it. I will have my degree, and then I'll go and do something else and figure out what I want from my life. Then, when I'm a fair bit older and have figured out how to be a good social worker I might come back and use my degree. I just wish I knew what I was going to do instead. My mum has said that she will not allow me to get a job working in a shop or something, but then again she doesn't have much choice - I'm 23 and can do what I like! I don't necessarily want to work in a shop, cause that'd be boring as all hell, but there aren't that many options unless I do more study which is so not happening right now. I'm totally and utterly sick of study.
Not knowing what I'm going to do instead is hard, because it means I don't really have any goals for after I've graduated. Therefore it is virtually impossible to get the motivation to do any uni work, cause it's simply not important anymore. The only goal I have managed to find is that getting a spot as a camp counsellor at the USA Summer Camps is a lot easier if you have a degree such as social work. Still, you can do it without, so that goal's not really working for me that well right now.
Eight weeks to go..........The end could not come soon enough!!!!!!!!!
