After 5 years in university I realized I hate what I'm studying. I'm studying I.T. I entered this career because I used to make crappy indie games when I was younger so I thought computer related stuff was alright, and because a lot of adults kept saying how it's the most requested job area and it's the thing of the future etc.
I wasn't really convinced when I started, my other personal choices were graphic design or maybe psychology but my parents talked me out of them because apparently you have to be really lucky to get a job in that stuff in my country.
I haven't had a job in anything I.T. related yet and I'm kind of afraid to get one and confirm that indeed I hate this. I feel extremely unconfortable attending my classes, there's not one subject that I enjoy and the people I met aren't really great either, but maybe a job would feel different since I'd get paid for it and stuff.
Is this something normal that happens to anyone about 5 years through their studies? Should I still continue and try to get a degree? (I would get a minor degree thing in about 2 years if I go on and the Engineer one many years later). Considering everyone says I.T. is a good career and all.
Or is it really important to actually study what you like no matter what?
