What's some good advice for a career path or education choice?

I was going to go to college for my basics (undeclared), but lack of a job put the brakes to that idea. I now work forty hour weeks at a factory to pay a loan to start my credit, and I pushed my college till the spring. I had been thinking about the National Guard, but I have a past brain injury which they have a 12 month wait for me to pass from, which would be June 1, 2013. Then I thought possibly about trade school for Carpentry. I already have nine hours of college credits through my high school in carpentry, but I am unsure if I would be happy doing it. I would love to do something in nature, but seems every degree that deals with wildlife also with a lot of reading. I have came within points of failing English through the years up till Senior year when I had help with the general work, and I've always been a slow reader, and sometimes I reread the same line over and over. Comprehension is not an issue with smaller pieces I read, but demanded speed of reading is, and having an immediate grasp is also. I love reading small pieces and poetry, but larger stuff has my mind stumbling. So it's made me question if going to college would be a waste of time. I know all said is a mess of information, but advice is appreciated.
