Every career that I choose and am interested in is heavily involved when it comes to mathematics, same with pretty much every other job that is seen as top tier and prestigious. I myself want to be a shallow banker in NY with a degree in economics (HS Soph at the moment) and economics is pretty much all about mathematics, even though I believe it is classified as a social studies pathway. It would be too much to list every major career that involves math, so I will say the only one that I think does not is LAW, which I am not interested in.
I am not natural at math. I manage to get A's in my advanced math classes, but it takes a lot of hard work for me, while some others breeze through it. I am also severely handicapped when it comes to stuff like mental math. I literally do all of my calculations with a calculator. So, for me, math equates to a lot of hard work and, when it comes to homework, tedious and tiring work as well. I always get frustrated because they put the hardest problems at the end, when you are the most exhausted and do not have the drive to put in tons of time on just one problem.
Lastly, I don't understand how people say they like mathematics. I genuinely do not understand the concept of it. I don't exactly hate math because I know it drives our world, but I physically cannot process how someone would enjoy doing math and do it for fun.
I don't want to limit myself when it comes to my future careers because I know whatever it ends up to be, it will involve math, but at the same time, I don't really look forward to being behind and enduring hardship just because I am not naturally apt when it comes to mathematics.
P.S. A little about myself in case it helps develop my persona a little easier for analysis, so that you guys could advise me on if I would struggle with my career paths:
I am extremely based on logic and rationality, and am detail-oriented. One of my major extracurriculars is debate: even though I dislike politics, I like the intellectual battle of wits that it poses.
When it comes to all of my classes, I make my grades with an insane work ethic; I only have one natural talent that I enjoy and that I excel at, and that is writing.
