I'm facing a really big problem lately. I don't like to do anything. Most of my hobbies growing up were videogames, books, movies, music...everyone one of them stimulating my intellect but otherwise being completely unproductive.
Some played the guitar, others played soccer, some would program on their computers etc etc
Never had a hobbie where I created something. Never had a skill I could apply somewhere, apart from written word (and no, I don't like or ever written anything).
After having dropped out of Computer Engineering feeling I really needed to dedicate myself to something creative, I realize that my plans of studying again (either filmschool and/or game design) have not substantial basis. I think I have a lot of creative potential but I never did or accomplished anything. I have no skills from which to judge "what do I enjoy DOING?" and it's a question that bugs me till this day (and I'm 24 already). I've never done anything.
So I really dunno how to go about this. Forgetting for a second that I mentioned movies and games...what would you tell someone in my position who never did any productive activity which he could get an idea from (as far as where he should be headed)?
What have you guys based your decisions in terms of career/major? Have you participated in related activities before you chose it? Did you say "hey I'm kinda good at this I guess"? Or was it some other reason, or WHAT?
