I am 19 year old I recently started studying to be a pastry cook, the problem is I loathe the thing completely can't stand it. Why have I chosen it then? Well, my parents forced me to pick somewhere to study, and I have chosen this area, without prior research, basically on a whim. It's not my passion and never will be.

I thought about just dropping the whole thing and go to work and earn some income, but my parents are forcing me to stay on this program till it ends (It's 1 Year only). I would stay if these studies would not interfere with my real passion which is music, art, lifting, and vidya, I love creating music, drawing. That is my passion that's what I want to do in life.

How do I go about? I don't want to work as pastry cook when I finish IF I finish these studies, what job would you recommend to do (I can do manual work no problem) that doesn't require college degree, or gives training on the spot. I'd love to work part-time. I don't party,smoke or go out so money should be enough.

Sorry if it's all mumbo jumbo. I am basically lost, and don't know how to turn my passion into something that I can do majority of my time, and only earn money on the side so I can support myself, if that makes any sense.

hsve you tried telling your parents you're more talented at art and will have more success doing it? (That might be a half-lie because talent is overrated, interest and effort matters more, but most people want to hear that). So that you can transfer to studying it

They won't listen, and to be fair I am not as good to be enrolling into some art or music school ( I think its waste of money to be exact) and I do agree that talent without dedication is nothing

Start creating art masterpieces with your pastries. The world is your canvas.

In my school I am being taught how to bake and overall preparation not actually decorating them, It seems that I am being taught how to work in massive shops, and not in small stores where you can actually decorate or do something with the muffins etc. But as I said I don't see the future as pastry cook for me.

In that case, construction or being a mechanic, even a plumber, can pay pretty alright. Drop out and take up an appreticeship with one of the above mentioned. Work at the lower levels, save up money to go to trade school, then you can make even more

Interesting, I may consider plumber, what about security guard o chauffeur
>>
>>16492974
In those cases, you are paid by someone else, it's a fixed salary. For what I listed, the comfy salary is made from being able to rip people off, since most don't know and/or don't care to know how to fix their car/sink/house

thank you for your insight, maybe you have more jobs to share?

If you want to be artistic, and go the not-college route, there's also being a tattooist. All start by apprenticeship so that's a good thing but you don't make much financially. Still, you might find it fun.

You do know that what you do for a living need not be who you are, don't you? Many people work at jobs that give them no special fulfillment, but buy them the leisure time to do what does feed their souls.

A job as a chef can pay the bills and let you find your joys elsewhere.

Sure thing bud, but when the 8,10 hour shift is over, you come home, you can barely stay focused on practicing on instrument or drawing
