Nursing, Teaching, Writing? Job Questions!!?

First I'd like to say if you read all of this and try to help me then congrats! and THANKS! I'm 15 and have been thinking about what I want to do when I graduate high school. I plan on of course going to college, but I'm not sure what to go into. I've always dreamt of the good life..that of which I'm very stable financialy and it's a very comfortable lifestyle..like everyone would like..but the only jobs I can manage to think would interest me just don't seem they will give me that money. I've recently been thinking alot about being a pediatric nurse..I love babies and I would enjoy taking care of them and being in the birthing ward..no clue what it's really called..its slipped my mind! I love children though..so I've also though of kindergarten teaching.. I know that it doesn't pay much so I'm sort of pushing it back in my mind. I've read some about nursing and i know a RN [registerd nurse] can get on avg. 30,000-50,000 but a NP [nurse practitioner] can get 40,000-100,000 a year. I'm not sure how much a kindergarten teacher would make..but I'm guessing around 30,000 a year..or lower? possibly higher in places like NY. yet again another job choice! I've always loved writing....when i'm not stuck. I've though of being a columnist..it sounded like an easy fun job.. giving advice and such but i'm sure those jobs are very hard to come by..and probably don't pay as well as Carrie Bradshaw's character on "sex and the city" !! These are by far not anywhere close to what i had always wanted to do..acting or modeling two very well paying jobs if you get the right job. Anyways, not everyone can have that life style, but they can have close to it! Please give my question a chance and a good answer..I know there's alot to it but if the Pediatric Nurse's, Kindergarten teachers and Columnist of yahoo! answers could help me out it would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!
