I appreciate your approach in seeking something that you will enjoy as well as offers a good income for you. I run into people far too often who don't really enjoy what they are doing but hang on simply for the paycheck. A few suggestions on how you should determine what to study: 1)Ask everybody you talk to, what do they do, how do they like it, why do they like it and so on. You never know what may pique your interest. 2)Seek and participate in various volunteer opportunities, there are any number of things that you can get exposure to with no commitment and at no cost. 3)Reach out to an admissions counselor at a local university/community college...they have some incentive to tell you what you want to hear so you will sign up for a class, but they could be a good resource to help you consider options. 4)Seek out a career coach, they may charge a modest fee or you can likely find one free of charge via a community organization or something like Goodwill Industries. Hope this helps!
