I feel hopeless but not giving up. I am in my mid 20's went back to school and finished practically all my general classes working towards A.A, but now it's time to choose concentration courses otherwise I am stuck with a General Studies degree, which is not my goal.. if I can get my foot in the door with an associates great but I know the chances are low unless I am doing something in healthcare and honestly im not too crazy about that unless it's like sonography and even then..

I've worked 7+ years as an office assistant in a property management company. Don't see myself here for the rest of my life. I'm in school to have a back up,profession/degree but I honestly don't know which path to go towards. I'm not great at math so I thought not to pursue anything math related, but eventually someday I would like to start my own business so I will have to practice and suck it up.

    After doing some research and literally googling random jobs in Indeed and seeing requirements.. I am learning towards Business or Marketing but mainly more towards Business. Not sure if I am on the right track yet but I plan on getting my associates degree in Business related major then work on my bachelors. On the side I plan on working with my art related hobbies and learn web development.. Sigh, I am all over the place lol but I am getting somewhere..

    You're going to have to do general education classes (art, science, etc) so you can always take classes that cater more to your interests that way.

    Yeah! I actually just finished all my general education classes now I have to take concentration courses for now I'll stick to taking business related courses. It's either business, graphic design, marketing, web development or education. And out of all, I feel business would be best.. I just have to really practice math.

    Just don't take upper division classes, they won't transfer. Stick to introductory level. Macro/micro, fin/mgmt accounting, etc.

    That's true, I'll stick to lower division classes for now. Currently taking Business 101, which still applies to management,admin,marketing majors so that's good
