If you haven't taken your core classes yet, you can take them and take a class for fun each semester. I mean 6-9 hours core, 3 hours fun. I did this and decided at least what area i wanted, and this may help with a minor, if you need one later. Then i narrowed it a bit more when i got into the area.

Sometimes I still feel confused about what I want to do. But I have taken a photography course online. That was fun. I also just finished my Associates Degree in Business Administration. At the end of May I start school again for my Bachelor's Degree in Human Resource Management. Why don't you try volunteer work for awhile? I volunteer at my daughter's school. It helps keep me busy. Maybe doing volunteer work will help you figure out what you want to do.

I go to school part time in the general studies program to get some credits while i am trying to decide what to do. It is a good balance between home and school.

You should try an aptitude test online. Its a test that will help guide you based on your personal interests. My suggested careers were Nurse, Teacher, Counselor, etc. The test was very accurate for me.

That's tough and probably not something other people can answer for you. One thing I've always thought is a good thing to go into though is nursing, if you are at all interested in the health care field. School takes 2 years full time, and there are almost countless areas you can go into from there, depending what you like! And you can pretty much find a job where ever, whenever- places always need nurses. The pay is decent and you can have a lot of flexibility with your schedule. It has a lot of perks.
