I hate to break it to you...but in order to be eligible, I'm going to have to shoot your parents.

Nowadays I'm positive there exists a drug of choice that will enable you to accomplish just that. Do you happen to know which one?

I'm just going to choose a decent paying with job security career path (nurse).

and if I hate it, I'm just going to have to suck it up and try to make the best of it.

or get my bachelors in the medical field and join the military...

I have no clue what I want to do. I went to school for 911 Emergency Dispatch, and EMT. But I decided those weren't for me. Now I spend most of my time looking for entry level, minimum wage jobs, because I don't have a whole lot of work experience to land myself a better position.

Sometimes life sucks.

find something you love, even anything that relates to it in some tiny form, and chase it until you land it. I love cameras, Japan, food, and hookah. I now work 3 jobs (1 full time, 1 a few hours a week, the other on call) and every time it doesn't even seem like I'm working, the money just comes and the fun never stops

You can actually get paid pretty well to be batman for kid's parties, convention promotions, film extras, and even in the kink field.

LOL. If that's the guy eating people's faces I always felt AXE was test marketing a facial sun screen that gave off an odor like fried chicken instead of a petro-based embalming oil. Epic fail.

Think about what makes you happy, what do you truly ENJOY doing? Regardless of how good you are at it, keep in mind you can always train yourself to be better, but you can't force yourself to like something you hate. Personally I LOVE firefighting. It's for me, but it sure as hell isn't for everyone. People will try to steer you towards certain careers, keep in mind, what's right for them is likely not right for you

I find it hard the right career path for myself. Sometimes I wish I knew what I was really good at, but I am up to the point where it's like I will go down and pick a path that I have the most passion and interest for.

Right now, what I have the most interest and passion for are:

Children's Services: I enjoy being around kids and planning to become a teacher, so I thought I'd use Childcare as a stepping stone.

Music: Enjoy having an active involvement, learning instruments, songwriting. My music teacher pointed out that I have a good sense or talent for writing song lyrics - which I do write as poetry. So I could plan to be a writer/poet.

Business: Studied business as I had a real interest for it, although over time it had become a little boring or stagnant. But I always wanted to be apart of management - for some reason, I always like being in control or being the main authoritarian. Although that being said, it may sound off putting for most.

The right career is the one that gives you a job, no one gives a dam about passion

Do something you enjoy doing and don't compromise for anything less. At least work towards your goals or you will be miserable.

So far I'm still looking my career too. And it's so hard. I wanted to be this and that. I wanted my parents to be proud of me too. Uhm, so I'm choosing between what my parents wants for me and to what my friends thinks what's best for me. It's really hard deciding for myself cause right now I don't know myself. When I was a child I used to looked up for my future but now my future is blurred and I need people to guide me. I don't say that choose the things that what others wanted for you. I wanted you to make those opinions your choices and if you don't feel like what they wanted you to be, then go for what you really wanted. For what you do best and for what you love. :')
