Keeping it Simple !
Its important to keep it simple and be thorough with everything you do. Sometimes what you need is a good laptop, a mentor and a sense of purpose in the field of your choice. Choosing a course can sometimes be really scary and that is very common, I was scared too that I had chosen the wrong field but eventually I realized that was not the case and a scholarship to get into the college of your choice can also help ease a lot of that stress.
My suggestion to people starting their journey is - Think about what you want and what your everyday will look like. Then do a lot of research about the reality of what different careers available and ask yourself if you would like to do this on a day to day basis.
