trayertrash Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 I'm 100% serious about this, so I'd appreciate only serious answers to this. So, I'm 23, get paid a decent amount to nanny, but I feel like I should have a backup plan with my life, because lbr, nannying isn't going to last forever. I want to go to college, but I live too far away from any around here to be able to work & go to school, so I'm considering online classes. The thing is though, I sucked in high school. My GPA was something like a 1.9 It wasn't the fact that I wasn't smart, I just didn't apply myself because I had extreme depression problems, so I know I'm not going to get a scholarship for having good grades. I have aspergers, a form of autism & it's cause me to have a lot of anxiety problems, so I don't want a career that involved a lot of public speaking. I can handle one on one conversations, but to even think about speaking in front of a large amount of people stresses me out. I'm awful at math & science. No matter how hard I tried in school, my brain just couldn't grasp it. I had tutors, teachers help, studied at home, but it never clicked with me.I have to use a calculator to do even simple math problems. The only subjects I was good at in school were history and government, but I don't want to be a history teacher or senator because of my anxiety & I can't really think of any other decent jobs you can get with a history or government degree. I don't want a job that requires me to travel because I have a child. So are there any careers out there for me? I legit feel hopeless about my future right now because I can't seem to find anything that would fit my life. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
