Hi all

A bit about me and my working style: I have severe ADHD and am a really weird type in that I'm creative but also adore straightforward, task-oriented work like manual labour that doesn't require a lot of thinking.However, I detest creating things with other people (if I have to work on creating a film script for a group at school, I am usually found in the corner!) My mother thinks I'm a genius, I'm really not, because even though I like maths I can't STAND science. My mom thinks I should do music because I have perfect pitch, am doing Grade 6 ABRSM piano, theory, and singing this year and is convinced I have real talent: but music is generally frowned upon as a degree. Honestly there are some days I just want to be a housecleaner or painter because I really enjoy mindless work!

My interests are (in alphabetical order):

Accounting
Arts and media
Culinary arts
Economics
Law
Maths (but only teaching it)
Music
Politics
Psychology
Teaching
Theatre


Any advice on suitable degrees for me that have a good reputation and are flexible for different careers? Also, when do you think the time is where I NEED to know exactly what my major should be?

Thanks

P.S. I am also a good student in most areas. My worst subjects are PE and science. I am about to start IB Diploma where I'm choosing to take ESS and I don't have to take PE this year, so my grades should get even better!
