BACKGROUND TO PART OF THE STORY *kindof* AND MY CURRENT LIFE-CONDITIONS, YOU CAN SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH IF YOU LIKE:
so, I just got my life into track, since I practically spent the last 7 months 'preparing' for the future, ie. university, I was dead to alot of things, old friends, school clubs, my art, etc. I went through 2 months of what my family decided to call 'The Great Depression', I became temperamental, emotional, lost any shred of self-confidence and esteem, and became so darn lazy. This, unfortunately, reflected on my report card (which I received yesterday) by me just barely escaping Bs. This was what I would like to call my 'wake up slap' which made me snap out of me depression (which was caused by stress btw), much to the relief to my bestie (who has been a wonderful listener to my rage-rant fits) and my family. I get serious again at school, but a week later my grandma suffers a heart-attack and now the whole house is thrown into havoc, we have two heart patients to supply with medicine (which is very expensive here),and me and uni fees to think of, which drastically limited my choice of uni.
THE MAIN POINT:
I chose a university I really like and can thankfully fit our budget. But I have no idea what to study there and this 'ambiguity' as I call it has cause me to take biology, chemistry, and physics this year (so if I have to make a last minute choice, I'll have decent choices). I've also begun with Calculus, I take English Literature and Grammar, but not very adept at either, I just have to because I am not a native English speaker, I did not apply for art courses (despite my deep love for it) because our art teachers do not take it as a 'serious-subject-that-can-make-your-good-future' but rather as 'a-hobbyist-subject-to-fill-up-course-work' and teach them under that conception,ie. not seriously, not as real ART, but as how to make flowers from tissue papers, which ticks me off. So my question [/b]is, can someone give me advice for a career choice that will suit my likes and provide me a good future? And by good future I mean a stable job, a nice income to help my family, while at the same time something I enjoy??
I do look forward to replies from college or uni students, as their experience could very much help me. And also from people who still didn't get into college or uni, maybe we could help each other decide??? And advice from anyone else is welcome too (Grandies, mommies, daddies, the pizza guy, yellow aliens, cat-hybrids, Eco-folks, etc, etc, etc)
love you all
