I'm 25, have a degree in Journalism, and currently work three different jobs. One of my jobs has made me realize that writing non-fiction is not for me. I make music for fun, and I write fiction (mainly comic and movie scripts at the moment), but I don't see them as career choices. If I have a stable career, I wouldn't mind only devoting my free time to them.
I've tried to break into the video production field, but aside from my Educational access job, I haven't had much luck, and I'm not sure I'd enjoy doing it full time. Currently, I'm also considering becoming a Police Officer, in hopes of becoming a detective.
The problem is, I'm not exactly sure what I want to do. I have general goals for my life (own a home, financial security etc., but I'm not certain career wise).
If you could tell me how you came to your decision, maybe it would help me make mine.
