I'm Not Sure If I'm On The Right Track.

I'm studying computer science in college, which I suppose I'm decent at. Pretty good, but not I-started-programming-databases-at-11-years-old smart. I enjoy it for the most part, but I'm not sure I can see myself doing it forever!

The thing is, I really love animals, flowers, gardening, and nature. And I enjoy baking. And I'm not sure I want to sit at a computer for the rest of my life. This is something that I consistently think about almost every day- what if I'm not happy?

Someone once said that I should just think about what I want to do for the rest of my life, disregarding money completely, and do that. But then I will have spent ridiculous amounts of my parent's money. And then what? Live on a farm?

I know I am decent at computer science, and I do enjoy it- I truly do. But I worry that it won't tie into what I want my life to become, or where I want to end up. Money really is not important to me, but I know it is to my parents.

I'm not like the other computer science majors I see around, and it bothers me. I guess I don't know what I need help or advice on officially, maybe someone should just tell me I'll be okay. I dunno.

Thank you for reading
