I was never quite sure what I wanted to become. In different stages in my life, I wanted to become an architect, football (soccer for Americans) player, lawyer, doctor, actor and even an inventor. I guess I wanted to be everything, but I only have one life, right? But then I discovered science and computers and I thought that I had to work in one of these domains, so now I am studying computer science. I could have chosen to go for physics instead, but I feel computer science is more creative and with more potential of development, especially from a guy like me, who doesn't have an IQ that off the chart.
Anyway, my feeling now is that all I want to be in this life is happy and fulfilled. Maybe a loving family would do that for me better than any career would, although I do retain my ambitions of becoming someone important in my field of work.
Without reason, I like to make films. I dont see this as a reliable career though and dont wish to be stuck in that field. What are the chances im going to be a steven spielburg? I tried taking an AP biology class but i dropped out within the first 2 weeks because i couldnt handle the work. I want to try it again for the learning experience but I don't want to go to college and fail my college science classes.
Im waiting to take Anatomy and sports med. my senior year to see if i would be right for a career in the medical field
All my fears are that i wont be good enough. Scapegoat i would just join the army.
Whatever you do, don't join the army.
Why wouldn't you want a career as a filmmaker? There aren't just Steven Spielbergs out there, there are a lot of others filmmakers. You could be a decent one too if you really stick to it, and most important if you like it. Doing what you like and making a living out of the same thing is probably what everyone should do. I myself am trying to find out what I want to do from now on, but my situation is a little more complicated. Set a goal and work hard for it, you won't regret it.
