    • Here’s the grammatically eiedtd version I have done. I love to hear you sound so happy. Yes, everything does go by too fast. I remember when I was your age as if it were yesterday, and yet nine years have gone by since then.When I finished school, I faced the same challenge. I liked writing as well, but I couldn’t decide on my career. The worst thing you can do at this moment is panic. And I panicked by enrolling in Philology (Letras), one of the best universities in America, the University of Buenos Aires I paniced because I wasn’t decided.The choice was interesting with excellent professors, but after two years of study I realised that it wasn’t what I expected. I spent a year without studying this subject until I finished my career in Humanities, which has no specificity, but it’s a series of studies related to literature, psychology, art, philosophy, science, etc. It’s a very comprehensive training course that focuses on the field that most interests you through postgraduate studies. I want you to know my opinion. It’s not my advice; just my opinion. If your plans are to study at a university, in your beautiful city there is one of the best universities in the world, or maybe the best: the University of Oxford. And my opinion it is well founded, I have met professors who studied there and people who lived there too.Daniel Dawson, my ex professor of Universal Literature, was the typical English gentleman. He had great elegance clothing. His classes were a pleasure, as well as hearing him talking in Spanish. He was one of the best teachers I have ever known.Many people all over the world dream of going to that university. Within the division of Humanities, is the Faculty of English and Literature. When you have time, visit the university. Walks the halls, the library, try to talk to someone. I’m sure that they’ll be happy to speak with such an adorable young man. Actually, people never have anything to do at the universities Try to imagine if you would like to study four or five years there. But the most important thing to do is to examine the curriculum, each subject, from your own taste. Try to do all this during the next year. If you can, attend a class to see what your previous experience is.I say all this because you should consider studying a career ONLY if you really feel that you like what a certain institution offers. Never go down a career path if you’re not quite convinced that it’s right. Never study a career just to please your parents, or for prestige or because society establishes it as law.I’d be extremely happy if this was truly your desire but, as an academic, I also must say you that university is not the only alternative, especially if you want to be a writer. There was not much to correct, but look out for sentence fragments and missing subjects or objects where needed if you plan on writing in English again. Also your advice to your friend was very insightful and true. I can tell you care a lot about him.
