What's wrong with a graphic design job? :c that's what I'm going to school for.
It's more than just creating advertisements, if you become a media specialist you can work on tv and movie sets, you can both write and help film things. I think it'd be fun for you!
I'm majoring in Media and Graphic Communications; part of which is helping people do things, not do things, want to do things, and understand things through media or graphics.
The great thing about college is that they'll help you sign up for internships outside of school, and you'll be able to tell from those experiences what it is that you enjoy doing and would want to continue doing.
But just because you decide to major in something, doesn't mean your job will be directly related.
My graphics teach in high school majored in Natural Science.
SOMEHOW BECAME A GRAPHICS TEACHER.

Nothing at all XD I just don't think I'd be very good at it. Even though it would be such a fun job ;A; I'd love to work on tv and movie sets. All the different stuff that they do sounds super cool.
When I get to college, I wanted to do a year abroad in England and I definitely wanted to get an internship somewhere, of course XD I'm just having trouble figuring out what exactly I would want to do and where I would get an internship. Like what I'm good at...or I guess what people say I'm good at. I don't think I am good at it or could do it as a career XD
My mom majored in music education.
SOMEHOW BECAME A PARALEGAL XD

As far as I'm aware graphic design and what Disney does are really really different.

But graphic design is pretty reasonable. It's a lot of computers and stuff. (logos and the like.) if you're any good at that.

You're not tall enough to be a model. Unless you wanted to be a petite model, but there aren't many of those.

Most people do work in offices of some kind. Just find a field you can work in and make a comfortable living. Maybe you could do journalism? That way you wouldn't always be stuck in the same place. You could do what my aunt does, maybe and go into human resources,be like a personal assistant where you plan traveling and meetings and such, or do hiring and firing and that kind of thing.

I'm pretty sure it's VERY different. I don't think I'm good with logos but I'm not really very good with people or anything either so I'm stuck XD
I'm almost 6 foot XD and there are models for everything. But I can't see myself in that career as fun and glamorous as it looks. I wouldn't fit in because of my appearance and my hobbies XD
I have thought about journalism :o it does sound like a lot of fun. I used to pretend to be an investigative journalist when I was a kid. And you know how much I love writing <3 Even essays are pretty enjoyable for me sometimes.
I've never thought about anything in human resources...I don't know how well PAs do though, but I do think it sounds sort of fun XD Planning stuff for other people. I wonder what it would be like to be a PA for someone at a magazine! Like in Devil Wears Prada. Oh that sounds fantastic <3 As long as my employer didn't ask me to get an unavailable copy of Harry Potter or something. Though no job is actually fun, really. Unless you play video games or do TV for a living.
They just keep trying to pick jobs with me and I feel shitty every time. I want to have it figured out, you know? :/

Seriously? I don't think you're 5'9"... 3 inches is enough of a height difference I would notice it more. If you're going off your medical records, they're way wrong. Mine says I was 5'8" like 3 or four years ago.

Maybe you could look into some of it somewhere online. I think the pay depends on who you work for. My aunt works for the CEO so I think she does pretty well. Odds are you won't be working for some drama queen. You could work in publishing. Manage authors and stuff?

Yah, I'm about 5000 times more lost than you are, so don't worry.

I'm 5'7" XD Or something like that.
I was thinking about publishing!! Like editing or something like that!! I could read the books that people send in to get looked at by the company and decide what could be good enough to get published. That sounds like such a party. Getting paid to read. GETTING PAID TO READ FANFICTION.
I am going to look into all of this.
And I would love to work for a drama queen. I would find it absolutely hilarious.
I think everyone's lost XD But I at least want some sort of game plan other than: "I want to go to Uni and idgaf where as long as they'll take my stupid ass."
^^^
That's it right now.

5' 8" is pushing the low end for a model americasnexttopmodelis-def-notaguiltypleasurewhat

Yah, I can't do music because it would be easier to drop out and start a band than it would be to make it in classical music. I am leaning toward engineering, but I really have no clue.

Breelyyy I already knew that you love ANTM XD
Engineering? Likeeee?
I just don't want to be stuck with some boring job and live some boring, normal life. Like seriously I don't. The way things are going, I'm just going to be another person that dies and get buried or whatever. Nothing that anyone's going to remember.
I still sort of want to move to London. Like really badly and now I'm thinking about the publishing company thing.

Why not? It's problem solving so it's creative. It makes good money. Its not often outsourced.

I'm sorry, I can't see what's wrong with that. I don't care how my life goes so long as I get to see AFI, MIW, and have an awesome tombstone. I don't need to be remembered, y'know? I just want someone to walk by and think my tombstone's pretty cool because pretty tombstones <3. And I hope I have some small positive impact, even on one person, by the time I die. That's really it. I'm soo ambitious.

I just didn't know what you meant by engineering :o but I think I get what you're saying.
I don't want to be just another person :/ there's nothing WRONG with it, I just don't want to be.
I think that's more ambitious than most people xD
