I'm starting college in the fall guys yes I know I'm 22 barely starting college. But I dont know what career I should choose or major I should say. Is there anyway I can find out. I'll settle on anything I can make money quick on cause I have my own dream that require skills and a lot of start up money. I honestly don't believe college can do anything for me except some 2d and 3d animation classes. But I might be wrong. I wonder if they have just normal art class guys let me know.
Here's what I like
I love English love love love it. I like write storys and coming up with ideas. reading storys and finding meaning in them.
I love art. I like drawing even though I can t but I'm learning how everyday I invest like 4 hours a day into this.
That's pretty much it.
Here what I hate.
I hate hate hate math. It gives me a headache. I don't retain much of it. It doesn't make sense to me.
I don't like science that involves math heavily.
Here what I wanna do with my life I wanna start my own independent comic/manga franchise like DC or marvel or Funamtion.
I don't think college equal sucess it just give u abetter chance I guess.

Going to be a long answer :P Anyway, first thing you need to understand is that all private and public schools have a "general education" requirement courses. In other words, you will have to take courses from many different majors because schools want their students to be more well rounded. You will probably change your major at least once throughout your career. I changed it 3 times before choosing economics.
Secondly, choose what you love to do. I'm sure you heard this saying many times, but the fact is you must always look at things years down the road. In other words, can you see yourself doing English or animation years down the road? I hate to break it to you, but English majors don't get paid very much. Additionally, English teachers have always been a pain in the ass for me because many of them tend to be egotistical assholes, at least in college. Why this occurs is still something I'm trying to figure out.
Thirdly, all hope is not lost. There are many ways to make money outside of your job such as investing in the stock market, an idea, a business, and so on. KEEP YOUR OPTIONS OPEN! Odds are you will not land a job that is related to your major right away. College does not equal success, but it sure helps with improving your odds because you have to look at everything from an employer's viewpoint (assuming you want to work for someone and not yourself). Would you hire someone who is Phd graduate student vs an only college level undergraduate student? Odds are the Phd student will get the job.
Overall, you are correct about your assumption about college. Nevertheless, do what you love, but keep your options open. For example leave room for other passions you enjoy doing such as art (art also does not get paid well after college). By having more options open you allow yourself to be less vulnerable to job loss and poverty. Lastly, good job on trying to figure out what you want to do. Just keep in mind that you will probably change your major as most students do.0
