Same here m8. It's been a lot of work for basically nothing. Math degrees pretty much do three things:
1. accounting/actuary 2. grad school 3. teaching k-12
If you take a lot of programming and CS stuff you might be able to swing a job with programming.
I decided I was going to try and teach high school math and then realized recently that I don't give a fuck about teaching math. So now I'm trying to figure out how I can be a history or English teacher.
My advice is to switch majors to computer science or something you're passionate about. It's funny, my brother majored in philosophy just because he loved it and he's killing it in law school now. Another friend of mine landed a writing job for a finance news publication because of his philosophy minor (it showed he had writing skills other business majors could not demonstrate). The old advice of being careful is probably mostly bad.

Doing art for money is almost as bad, IMHO, because you turn your muse into a whore and also endure hatred, infamy, and survivor's guilt for all your peers who didn't "make it over the wall." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kcabeYCXX4
It's like the 5th time you make this thread in two days, and I think I should politely point out that we can all tell that you actually followed the "make yourself employable" meme and now you regret it so deeply that you need to make these threads in order to hear people from the other paths who may be unhappy.
Don't worry, it's no big deal. You have only signed to a lifetime of emptiness, horrible social circles and existential despair. Now stop pretending to be one of us just to tell us we should be sad.
It's led me to intensively deal with my personal hangups, which helps brings out an ability to be happy without reason.
I've also ended up in a top 25 university for a subject that's closely related to my personal interests in mysticism, the mind, and phenomenal experience. I'm confident I am where I am because of my interest and trying to follow it closely.
>did you become a published author? I haven't really been interested in that, but who knows? Maybe one day.
>>7332512 Yes but you are still in university right? Why do you think you can say that you're happy when you haven't graduated and haven't started looking for full time work? Honestly you seem quite naive but if it works out in the end than good for you.
