Learn to code, and force yourself to like it because every other career ent worth it. You could go trades as a safe bet if you truly don’t know. Otherwise, follow your dream and be prepared to make shit all during that hustle, and if you can truly devote yourself you may succeed.21
I know I want something creative like hosting a radio talk show, building up a lingerie clothing line, being in the advertising/copywriting market, possibly having a film critic hobby, or simply becoming an interior showroom design consultant. At the same time, I wouldn't mind being an executive assistant to the CEO. But at the end of the day, whatever I do, I want to feel happy and needed. If they dont need me then they can dispose of me at anytime. And if i dont feel happy, i could quit at anytime. Thats what im struggling with these days is finding a place where i dont hate working. At the end of the day, none of it really matters to me because my only true dream job is to become a mom. So all of the above is just making money in support of that dream12

I just went with the best job offers I got out of university as a software engineer. I ended up getting a bit lucky and striking gold on the internet by publishing some work (just freeware combined with a paper) that ended up becoming widely used in the film industry, and then I was offered jobs left and right without applying.
It's a fairly enjoyable job although I miss seeing my colleagues face-to-face. I've been working purely remotely since the COVID lockdown.
It wasn't my dream career. I actually wanted to become an illustrator when I was in university, and double majored in both visual arts and computer science. In hindsight though, I don't think I'd want to be an illustrator and I wasn't all that great compared to the top students in my art courses. I probably would have had to have been an accomplished illustrator and a recognized name in my field to have even earned as much as I did fresh out of university as a software engineer, and achieving a sense of stability might have been a struggle. I think I enjoy it more as a lifelong hobby rather than a career.
That's great, awesome achievement 👏
