need some help deciding on what to do next in college?

So im 20 years old now i dropped out of a 4 year university after a year and a half. I had no idea what i wanted to do and didn't want to waste the money and i was a bit immature to say the least ha ha. After all that i decided to move out and try to start my life, i didn't land far (ended up at my sisters) i give her a minimal amount of rent. So after about a year and a half of "soul searching" i think ive come up with a game plan. For some background on my interest... i love math, history and physics. Lmao weird huh? but i also love art, painting, drawing etc. I love to think about philosophy and new ideas and i tend to ask a ton of questions and research everything i find interesting. With those characteristics i think my best bet would be an architect, or at least that's the only one ive thought of... (i need another persons perspective) im also very familiar with some CAD programs, google sketch up(=P) and went to a 2 year hands on carpenter course in high school building sheds, fences etc.( ya my school was awesome.) My plan is to pay for my associate degree myself, since its pretty cheap, i know if i try at it i can get straight A's its never been a problem and get a good scholarship to my bachelors degree. Hopefully i can get a job at a firm for a while, save up some money and pay for a masters (in case i cant get a good scholarship after my bachelors). basically do the same for a doctorate. It doesn't matter how long it takes to attain it as long as i do. I have the right motivation and i can work hard when i put my mind to something but i have 0 support system, parents are out of the question and my sis has no clue about college. So what im asking is for some outside perspective on my chosen subject, and maybe some advice what colleges might be good for low income, financial aid etc ive chosen a cheap college already to start an AA and all that im willing to move around, (live in Suburbs of LA atm) thanks for the help :)

First of all, you are gifted or extremely intelligent. Along with your gift, comes a feeling of being overwhelmed because you are so curious and the world seems like a giant candy store with so many interesting things beckoning you. Gifted people are extremely curious, are distracted from one career when finding out... More
