I’m leaving high school soon and I’m scared for the future.

I’m currently a senior in high school. I have no idea what I want to do with my life. I know I want to go to a 4 year college but I don’t know what I want to study. At the moment my only interest that I could possibly make money off of is YouTube. I have good grades and great friends but no goals or even vague ideas of the direction I want to go. At the moment I’m pouring all of my waking hours into YouTube, learning how to grow on YouTube, and making videos. I feel like any job that I get wouldn’t be enough for me because no matter what I try I get bored eventually. I try lots of things for a while but they never stick. It feels like I’m a jack of all trades master of none. The only reason I like YouTube so much is because I can do whatever I want and it also includes computers which I have a talent for. Basically I have zero idea what I want to do because YouTube requires lots of luck but it’s the only thing I like doing.

Yeah I’m sure it’s better as a side-job without having stress on your shoulders, would you mind if I dmed you with questions sometime since you seem to have a lot of experience?
