What the fuck. No, really, what the fuck!?

Post by Glyph on Tue Jan 25, 2011 11:42 pm

I am halfway through my sophmore year of high school. In high school so far, I have higher than a 4.0 GPA. I play tennis in the fall, and lacrosse in the spring. I have never done any volunteer work outside of Boy Scouts. I am taking the second highest level Spanish as an honors class right now. But I have no idea what I would like as a career. I have less than a year before I need to start thinking about what I need to do to get into college. Money is also an issue. Without a massive number of large scholarships, I'm going to end up paying for college for the decade after I leave it. So what the fuck? What the fuck am I supposed to do?

But I suck ass at sports, and I don't have any kind of job experience. And what if I decide to major in something that it turns out I don't like? Then I'm double fucked.

The issue of going into something you might end up not liking isn't really an issue that can be solved, me thinks. I'm a math and science guy and am going into engineering, and I think I'll like it, but really I might end up not liking it.
Given your ability though, you've got a lot of options it seems, and you'll probably be able to do well at whatever you do.

I believe if your family is shorter on money you get some help from the government. "Financial aid," though you probably already knew of that.
Anything else that would make it hard for you to cough up money, like being the second or third child going to college, might help.

There's a ton of colleges in the USA. Chances are you'll find one that works, if you look enough.

Not sure how much that helps. I figured I should throw my two cents in.

Thanks for all the ideas. I forgot about this thread completely, mostly just having made it one night out of undirected anguish.
