Holy fucking shit, i am having a crisis right now. I know i need to do something but i have absolutely nothing i am truly passionate about.
I'm sorry man i have literally no one i know in real life who i can actually talk to about this and get good information. I have the opportunity to go school and i know lots of other people didn't and it makes me feel even worse.
What are you/did you take? Most of the tech courses i looked at were only 2 or so years.
I got a history degree. Maintained straight A's and now they're funding my graduate education, starting in august, with a TA position and a stipend.
I mean it's not a complete wash but if you can read and write reasonably well and are willing to exert yourself some undergrad studies can be really easy. I took a grad class in my senior year and that was a lot more punishing though so I expect my masters to be a lot harder than my bachelors.

>End up in Canada
>Now doing a double-major in some bullshit while relying on nepotism for work experience
If you're a domestic student you can suck my hairy arsehole because the government will pay for practically everything you need. Friendly reminder you can transfer between programs too. Or you could just learn a programming language or three
99% of people that work jobs are not passionate about them, you better hurry up and shit or get off the pot son. Pick something because sitting idle and getting older is even worse.
Try to pick a STEM major
The modern trend is to seek jobs and career paths that are meaningful to you. Works better for motivation. Having a break from working or studying to figure out what you want isn't the end.
I was going to go to a mediocre college for free and try and get some IT certs. Now I go to a pretty good school so I guess it worked out, although the things I'm studying have very little impact on employability...
4chan the place to go to discuss your normal issues! This website is a safe zone where people will care and listen, zero tolerance policy for bullying or racism or sexism no hate ! Else le reddit army will give you epic edgy meme xp
Then get interested in something. Read some scientific journals or something for a couple months. Something is bound to interest you. Think about the job you'd like to do, not the courses you have to take to be able to do it.
I mean, who the hell enjoys listening to some guy talking about boring fluid mechanics for an hour and a half? It's just something you have to do.
Nigga you need to make something good out of your hobby.
You can do these at your own pace.
I didn't realize I was going to double major until my second year so you have some space to make changes. If you're only going for a single major you could probably change half-way through your second year if you wanted. At least in humanities you don't declare what you're aiming for until the end of 2nd year so it doesn't matter too much if you make changes.
I'm 22 and I'm a NEET that has even less direction in life. I went through the same thing but dropped out of school, did too many drugs and now I'm a complete trainwreck on autismbux and anti-anxiety medication. I leave the house like once a month.
FIND a fucking passion and stick to it
I don't really like my job with plumbing, it's literally shitty but it gives me a good sense of hard work with the long days and the people you meet that are in the trades in general. It's just really getting to me not having any friends or social activities that don't involve my family. Like i had a lot of friends in highschool and it was great but i never did anything outside of highschool like go to parties etc. So i never made that connection of being invited to shit and i basically lost contact with everyone.
I'm sorry bro, what happened. What province/area you from.

More than me m8.
Anyhoo, I was like that, too, but I love movies and I would love to work on set, so I went to my local college and studied film production. I have made several shorts and I have some films in line for festivals and Im hoping to make a feature within the next two years. The best part of having that kind of qualification is the diversity of work within filmmaking, so you might find something you like
