I am English major and want to know what kinds of career can I have with it, anyone done this or any ideas?
I want to have a career where I can make enough money to live comfortably. I have taken classes and in the middle of the term I get bored and I can't seem to think myself doing these for the rest of my life. I was thinking about going into educational teaching.

I have friends who have degrees in English and do not have "successful" jobs. The degree does not foster much opportunity. Teaching would be a good option, but would require a different course of study.
