I have NO idea what I should be when I go to college/get a job. Can anyone help?

I am really smart. I don't really have a passion, but I guess if learning is a passion, that's what mine is. I'm only a freshman in high school, but I need to start thinking about what I want to become. I am in all AP classes and I get all A's. I am very strong in every subject, and I am interested in every subject. All things fascinate me, whether it's reading a novel, learning about tectonic plates, using math theorems, researching about cell structure, learning a new language, and I even enjoy painting, drawing, planning, doing sports, etc. Yeah, it's great that I love learning so much and I'm good at it, but I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT TO BE! There are a few things I want out of my career choice: A good amount of pay (who doesn't want to be financially stable?), something I won't get bored of, something that I can create with and put my personality into, and something that is notable, (I want a career that requires a lot of education, because that will gain respect and a feeling of accomplishment to myself). I would LOVE to be many different things- a writer, a doctor, an architect, a neuroscientist, a therapist, a wedding planner....but I can't do it all. How can I find out what I want to do? Is there even a career out there that will suit my wants? Does anyone else feel this way and have advice? Thank you so much :)

Well I don't want to disagree with what the other person said (business major) as that's the route I went! However, in this economy many of the people who have highly skilled science- and math-oriented positions that are APPLIED science jobs are leaving the workforce -- they are retiring. See, after World War II, the... More

I would say out of everything you have given me, a teacher is your best bet. You can be creative with your teaching, and since you love learning, you will probably love helping students learn as well. Especially if you are a grade school teacher, you can use all of your knowledge on the broad amount of things you know... More

Just be a student.(Figuratively speaking) Take general classes like english,algebra,etc.In the meantime, try several different subjects that you think you may like. i.e. Computer programming,welding,psychology,etc. It make take several tries to find that "niche"

Keep going in science and math. The world needs lots of people in science/math who are discovering new things, and it sounds like you could be one of those people. Consider going for your PhD and teaching college and doing research.

Don't worry - you won't get bored with your career, whatever you decide, as long as you choose something creative. I believe things like a doctor, therapist etc would be wrong choices. Architect is a good choice, because every building you design is a new creation. Entrepreneur might be better... More
