There is a trend when it comes to careers - not just but mostly those in business - that shows proficiency in mathematics is an extreme advantage when it comes to the highest-paying careers. Pretty much every job involving finance, economics, business, engineering, and more.
There are so many people around me that are naturally great with math, many of them are years younger than the regular high school kids, and their grades in advanced math classes average out far above 100. Others are the same age, yet still extremely and naturally proficient in mathematics. In fact, a lot of these people are not only naturals at math, but actually enjoy it.
I can make high grades in math. Will it take a great amount of hard work, much more work than the naturals have to put in? Yes. Do I enjoy doing math? No. Am I a masterful writer who hates reading? Absolutely. But that is aside from the point I suppose.
I enjoy studying the stock market. I know that I like a subject when I don't hate reading about it, and thus far I can tell the stock market is a subject for me to look into. Therefore, I can surmise that I will in the future attempt to secure a career as an investment banker. Yes, people will say you may not use anything more than basic arithmetic in finance, but I don't want to be at any disadvantage at all, be it microscopic or not.
I have some extreme competition, and they are all going to be Einsteins. My generation is insatiably greedy. This means more competition for a path to a baller lifestyle.
I don't love math. Then again, I don't love any other subject that is taught in school. I don't see how one can love anything that is mentally taxing, unless it is so easy to that person that they love to see how much better at it they are then those around them.
Do discuss this dilemma, and feel free to "put me in my place" because I am "just a sophomore."
