Hey all. Yes, I am that guy who was struggling in curve sketching in AP Calculus. Before I get into this post, I just want to update you all saying that I figured it all out and we’re moving on to logarithm derivatives and integration. I’ve actually been starting this new semester on a better note than the last one; namely with a higher average. So thanks for all the advice!
Now, as the title says, I do not feel I am ready for a full 4-year college experience right out of the gate. I’ve never lived away from my family in my entire life and do not know how I am supposed to make money on my own. I’ve volunteered for over 300 hours but I’ve never had a paid job and don’t know where to start. And as I’m closer to the end of senior year, I’ve come to realize how little I know myself when it comes to choosing a major. On several standardized tests where it asks for what career path I plan to take, I remember bubbling “undecided” on multiple occasions. I thought I wanted to be a doctor, but I realized that no matter how much I study for AP Biology, I always fail every major quiz and test, with labs keeping me afloat. And I am also a self-admitted introvert, so I don’t know how much of an effect that will have in a future doctor job. Maybe I don’t want to be a doctor? I should also add that I am taking AP Bio, AP Calculus AB, AP Gov, AP Macro, and AP Lit.
Bottom line is, what should I do? Where should I go from here? Any advice is helpful.
