decide what you wanted to do career wise? I want to go back to school and get started on a real career. I do not want to be stuck doing what I am doing forever (retail), but the trouble is, I have no idea what it is I want to do. Or what I would even be good at. I can't think of any particular skills that I have that would be beneficial to anything inparticular. Some people are telling me that I should just go take general studies or something and then once I am there something I actually want to do will come to me. I just don't see that happening though. I graduated high school four years ago and there is still nothing that grabs me and says "this is the job/path for you!". My brother always knew what he wanted to do... and I just have no idea. All I know is that I am hoping for a career in which I'll make a decent amount of money and something that hopefully will be Mon-Fri. But other than that, I am completely stuck. When I was growing up I thought I wanted to be a vet. Well, actually, I wanted to be a marine biologist so I could work with whales... then I was told they rarely work with whales and so I changed my mind. But my math and science skills are awful. I just don't get either and both frustrate me to no end. Plus, I'm kind of squeamish with gross things, and being a vet often involves some really gross things. Still, sometimes I still think I'd enjoy it. Being a vet tech might be ok too, but they don't seem to make a very good salary. The ones I know barely make enough to live on. And I am not wealthy by any means (not even close), but I want to be able to live comfortably on my own with two dogs and also be able to have and do other things also. Then more recently I thought maybe dental assisting or dental hygiene would be good, but apparently that involves a lot of math and science too. And it doesn't really interest me all that much. It just sounds like a good career to have, if that makes sense. I might still look into it anyway though just so I can do and be something. I just really don't know. I wish I was one of those people that had a thing they always dreamed of or a thing that they knew they would be good at. I am so stuck and completely clueless as to what I want to do and it is beyond frustrating. I am tired of working jobs that barely pay anything that I don't really even enjoy that much (my current one is ok, but like I said, not what I want to be doing forever). I want a real career. So how did you all decide what you were going to do? Did you go to school for it? Fall into it? Do you enjoy it? My family keeps telling me that I am overthinking things, and maybe I am. I've always just liked to be sure of something before I do something. And since school has always been hard for me, I don't want to just go and still not actually have a path to follow.
