How could I get over this?
I couldn't really abbreviate this in the title, but here's my explanation. Right now, I'm finding it difficult to find interests and goals for myself. I'd love to have a hobby that I could fall back on every now and then, but I simply cannot. I enjoy doing certain things, but I can't settle down and have any sort of mild obsession (if that makes any sense). This is making it hard to find a future career, as I don't have a primary interest- whereas many people that I know already have a fixed job idea in their mind. It's driving me mad, because my life isn't constructed at all- it's like I go to school, get home, browse the internet and procrastinate when work needs to be done. People say writing a list is a good idea, as you can have goals to achieve- but I don't have any (and I'm certainly not happy with everything right now, meaning I SHOULD have goals). Sorry if this sounds a bit pathetic, but I'd love it if somebody could help.

just do what you enjoy and if you need money and find yourself doing a job you arent exactly happy with ...well a ton of people do jobs they dont particularly like but they do them, until they figure out what they would like to do, you will find your niche eventaully, good luck and take care!

It looks like you are showing signs of mild depression. I'm not qualified to diagnose that, but it would be a good idea to talk to someone about it. A school counseller perhaps. They are trained to talk about situations exactly like yours. You may need just a little guidence.
