There's only a few short months left which leaves me feeling under pressure. Almost all my classmates and friends have at least some idea of what they are going to do after school and I just feel so left behind/lost. My parents never really push me into doing anything. Which, although they have good intentions, isn't helping me right now (or is it?).
I don't particularly have interests in anything, such as in sports or hobbies. I mean, I like to play video games but what person at my age doesn't. That doesn't mean I want to develop a game though. I did try a bunch of musical instruments but it's either I lack persistence and perseverance or none of the instruments were right for me, since I quit playing all of them (piano, violin, flute, saxophone). I do have almost-perfect pitch and good musical knowledge though, but what use is it now. Regarding school subjects, I prefer STEM subjects (maths & science based) than language-based or art-based subjects. But that doesn't mean I love maths & science subjects… They're just okay. While on the topic of school, I get average-to-decent grades, at least for maths… I finished Methods last year and got 37 raw although I hated the subject and only started to really study the week before EOY exams (not proud of that though). I'm aiming for an ATAR of 90+, preferably 95-ish but I'm definitely lacking motivation right now and more worried about what to do after school.
When I look at undergrad degrees, there's nothing there that interests me. Both my brothers have commerce degrees with CPA/CA but it just doesn't seem like my thing, you know - sitting in front of a screen analysing and revising financial reports, drafting finance stuff, working with Excel spreadsheets, etc. etc. Sure, the pay is high but I feel like it just doesn't make a difference in the community and the effort is only acknowledged and seen in the confines of that accounting firm. I would prefer doing something that benefits and makes a difference to the whole community, which is why I'm (kind of) considering police jobs or studying teaching (doctors fit this category too but it's way too competitive, maybe civil engineering?).
I would love it if you could post anything motivational or advice/your experiences graduating out of high school/uni and finding a job - it would really help me. Thank you so much!
