For a while I figured I would be a web dev but whenever I look at job postings I just cringe at the words "SEO" and "content management", and when I see the trendy jquery-heavy websites that are so popular today I die a little inside.
If you don't like jquery don't bother going into web
jquery bloats the webpage, in both load times and while current trends would say otherwise, in appearance; why would you need a playing movie as a background for a webpage? I may move towards the back end or yes, away from web all together.
What are you even asking OP?
>You don't know what job you want when you're all growed up?
Talk to a career advisor. Get some work experience, see what suits/interests you.
>What languages should I learn?
Depends upon above.
I very much like Jquery's improvements to DOM manipulation, but you can't deny that it is overweight for just DOM manipulation. Wanting to go without it is not inherenlty bad.
Besides, often Angular/Knockout/React/Polymer etc. are better choices
