My future.?

My future.? Topic: Careers in writing and photography
June 16, 2019 / By Abagael
Question: I am 18, out of high school for a year, and not sure what I want to do with my life. I enjoy computers, theatre, writing, and photography. There are so many different careers out there, and I just don't know how to make up my mind. I was thinking of going to college in my hometown for my general credits atleast, and then moving to a larger town in a few years with a much better college, with many more majors available. But I don't know what to do. Can any of you help me? Or is there some place I can go to talk to someone who can help me? Any ideas would be very helpful. I am pretty sure I want to get an education, and get a good job afterwards. I just don't know what I want to do. I also want to be able to find a career after college. I don't was a degree in something useless. Thank you all for your help!

I was in your exact position. I took a year off and still didn't exactly know what I wanted to do with my life. It all seems like a big decision. I didn't want to make the wrong choice and end up wasting thousands of dollars of my parents hard earned money. So, I got a got waitressing (erlack.) and volunteered at my local elementary school. I loved working with the children and decided that's what I wanted to do. Then I went to a college and decided that I hated it. Came home and took another semester off now I'm going back to school in the fall. My advice to you is to go out there and experience all the things you love. Take some extra art courses to see if you really do love photography. Go talk to people at a local theatre or a professional photographer. Most people are very nice and willing to help you out or offer advice and tips. Good luck, I hope this helps!

You still have plenty of time in your life so don't feel you've fallen far behind, you just hit a speed bump and need to keep on going. Don't lose hope! You seemed a little unsure of what you want (I'm stuck to so don't fret). I suggest going to a Community College and getting your AA in Liberal Arts. That would be a good goal to set ,and the most important thing is to set a goal. Liberal Arts really means General Education, it's all the basic courses that you need no matter what you want a BA in. The important thing is to stay on track and reaching your goals, and planning new ones. Talk to a counselor or just try out new things to find out what you like and want to do. Good Luck!

Get a degree in dramonomy. It is a great new fast paced career. It combines computers and theater arts. The starting pay for a dramotologist is about $63,000. You only need to take a few online classes. I just got certified and love my job. I work about 3 hours a day. Typically my day starts off with a stiff gin and tonic. Gets the creative juices flowing. Next I spend two hours making a theater design system on the computer. Finally I am done for the day!

Hi There, All I can suggest is go to uni and study a basic business/marketing degree then transfer if you decide to. Dont leave it for too many years like me and regret it and then have to do it when you are married and working full time! Good luck and make sure you think hard about this!!

Take your basics, that should give you some time to think about what you want to do... Many (high paying) jobs just require that you have a Bachelors Degree. It can be in basket weaving for all they care.... As long as you have the degree your eligible for many more jobs and will get compensated better too.

It was tried before. It didn't work then either. It was the 1950's and television was really catching on. The movie makers were trying all sorts of new stuff to draw people away from the televisions and back into movie theaters. Wide Screen, Cinemascope, 3-D, technicolor, and the one that was most successful for them at the time, "adult themes that couldn't be shown on television in the 1950's. So now they are faced with eroding audiences again. Computers, cable channels, ipods, video games, you name it. Everything is chipping away at the theater audience. In the future you are going to see theaters try all sorts of things to get people to come back. 3-D, digital programming of sports, theatre or concerts in 3-D. Some of the new technology will be great and some of it will go away. I predict that the 3-D will fade away again, but other technologies will take its place. Bigger screens, better sound, digital delivery, live streaming content these are the things I think will rule in theaters in the future. I truly believe the days of films being theatrically released will be over in the next couple of decades. By then it will all be home delivery on giant flat-screen home theater systems with thousands of channels to choose from and complete control of the content. I'm not happy about all of it, because I think seeing a film in a group setting is part of the experience of the art, but change it will.
