How did you guys find out what degree you wanted in life? I am lost on what I want to do for a living. I don't want the normal answer of just do what you like. Just wanna hear how you found out what you wanted.

Um I was in your spot.

People tell me all this BS about "ohhhh you gotta learn to love your field" or "anon you should pick something you love."

Honestly fuck that.

Nothing could motivate me so I got into my current field because I just wanted to be the best at it. No family motivation or guidance, no epiphany or life-changing focus, none of that shit.

Pick a field, look at the salary, is it good? Good. Now go do it.

seriously just do it.

I'm in my 3rd semester of this degree with my best GPA yet and persuaded myself into an office manager position at a law firm

My next degree will be a BABA and then a MBA.
I like people and I like business so it suits me.

The easiest way is to find what major is best for you is to graduate.

I would say both of your answers are correct. Either love your job or get compensated enough for it to not matter.
