I don't know what I want to do after school. Do people have any suggestions? Feel free to ask me questions or describe your own career. Thanks

That you're thinking about this is good, but it's not a question you've got to answer now. What I'd suggest is that you think about five to ten of the careers that you think you might like, and then do some research into them. You might consider emailing some of the people in that field and asking them about their jobs, how they like it, what they do, etc. and perhaps even shadowing them for a week or so. Internships are good for that too. The more you know about a given career path, the more likely you are to make a good decision, but you can only know what you want by trying a whole bunch of different things. So, reach out, and try a whole bunch of different things.

What is your career/intended career?

Do you like people, ideas, things or data?

Feel free to pick up to two, clarifying which one you primarily like.

Then answer more specifically, within what you chose, what do you like to do relating to it?

-

For example, I like people and ideas, but I like people slightly more. I like teaching and I like helping people. I may consider being a nurse or a teacher.

I like ideas best. I like data worst.

I like to think abstractly.

I'd suggest you don't pick a people-profession, given your anger-control issues. lol
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Yes... definitely something that doesn't involve interpersonal interaction and especially no having to deal with differing viewpoints LOL

You could try running a railroad.
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
