The thing is, even though some of the people seem to think they know what they want to do--- they don't. I didn't find my calling as a nurse until I was in my early 20's. Here's how I found out what I wanted to do.

What do you like to do in your spare time? Do you like building stuff? Volunteering? Start from there. Also, look at bls.gov/oco . It is a great website that lists almost every profession, the skills required, education and also pay.

Don't fret if you don't know what you want to do. If you decide to go to college, don't fret over picking your major-- you can always change it, and most people do. After you take some classes, something will peak your interest. For me, it was a biology course.

Hope this helps! :-)
