If computer science were really the field for you, you'd enjoy studying it. If the course is a drag, you're setting yourself for a lifetime career in an area you're never going to enjoy. Dump the major, and learn the knowledge and skills of carpentry. With a rewarding and enjoyable profession, it's like you never work a day in your life.
>>16782963 I'm interested in more about what you have to say. All the things I'm "interested" in are god awful career choices that I would be really bad at actually working in.
I don't like IT/CS at all as it makes little to no sense to me, but I'm doing it because it means I'll have a good job 20 years down the road and my body won't be shot from working outside. Halfway through my IT degree I decided I wanted to be a forester, did that for a year, and then got lyme disease and lost my forestry job. I'm back in IT now, hoping I can land a job working with GIS.

I feel a strange compulsion to suggest carpentry as the solution to all problems on /adv/, but in your case it's a real option. You can't outsource installing a new bookshelf or kitchen counter.
In any case, you should make a career choice based on a lifestyle you'll enjoy, rather than just where you reckon the work will be. If you were serious enough about forestry to actually do it for a year, IT is very unlikely to be your thing as it's hard to imagine two more disparate careers.
Think hard about what kinds of things you like doing and are good at. There are a million and one careers apart from the ones a high school advisor knows about; look for niche things you love. It doesn't need to be a major sector, so long as there's at least one opening in the world. If your job is something you enjoy, you'll be motivated, reliable, and skilled at it, which in turn will make for a great working atmosphere; if you hate it, that will make you unreliable, unprofessional, and a nightmare for your boss/clients - and they'll dump all that hurt back on you, making a toxic job climate.
If you were a bored millionaire, what rewarding and challenging activity would you do to pass the time? Chances are someone will pay you to do it, or something very similar.
