Do you already have a general idea of what you want to do career-wise?

I kinda wanna turn my passion into my career, like maybe become a freelance animator or do art commissions, but if that's a flop I'm probably gonna be a doctor or a lawyer. I heard they earn alot lol

I'm still in the second semester of my first year of high school (Grade 8 here, since I know with other places it's different) and I'm planning to do something involving art or writing if I don't get enough of a fan base on YouTube to make a living out of it, or if it just doesn't work for another reason. Generally though, I'm focusing on the whole YouTube thing, the other two ideas are just backup.

I'm currently in my second semester of 8th grade, (I'm also homeschooled), and I think I have a fair idea of what I'd like to do?
I'd either love to milk for a dairy farm, train horses/teach lessons to those interested in riding horse, or work for a stable (grooming horses, cleaning stalls, ect).

I mean none of those jobs bring in a ton of income, but it would be enough to get me through life, plus they're things I enjoy doing~

I've been in and out of school majoring in Animation since 2011, but College has been way too stressful for me. I feel like I've been just wasting my time and money there, especially since I'm not 100% sure what to do with my life. I'm just working and focusing on getting my driver's license right now.^^; Not even sure if Animation will truly be my thing. However, I'd still love to make a personal motion-picture someday, working at Disney would be totally awesome! I do feel that Illustration is something I excel more at, since I really don't take the time to practice animation anyway. Not even sure if I want to make art for a living, because just like everyone else says, the art world is incredibly competitive. And then having to draw what others tell me to draw? I draw for myself! (Not that I'm selfish) Point is, I'm just stuck in a hole right now.:saddummy:

I am going to attend an art school and get a degree, so I suppose I'll work with something art-related

I'm one year into my teaching degree and still not sure if that's really what I want to do for the rest of my life. >.<

Ahhh, fair enough! A lot of people end up switching careers though, so you'll probably be able to find something else that suits you!

I'm not in education anymore (master's degree in computer engineering), and it's not like I don't have a plan, but after 4 years of work exploitation with unpaid extra hours, and barely and raise in my feeble paycheck (after 4 years I manage to still get less than 1k euros per month). To make matters worse I work with some highly specialized piece of software that no one else wants to work on... I quite hate it myself.

I'm fed up with life or future plans and so I don't care anymore...

So I just don't know how to answer this pool...
