  • some one your age shouldnt have to worry about this but you might consider journalism or even writing scripts for movies and plays. if youre a dreamer:comidean
  • Don't sweat it too much. I didn't declare a major until my junior year of college. I think too much pressure is put on young people to decide what they want to do with the rest of their lives before they've had enough experiences to really know.
  • i didn't figure out what i wanted to do until i was 18, i was 18 in october. youve got a good few years. somepeople don't realise what they want to do until after they go to university.
  • You have plenty of time to worry about it. When I graduated high school I had no idea what I wanted to do. I thought I knew that I didnt want to go to school. But then but some how I ended up in college. Now I am working on my masters degree in History and Special Education. Have fun enjoy life you have plenty of time to worry about what you want to be.
  • your 14 honestly i think from the time i was 14 to now (18) i have changed my mind about 147 times no lie... i am going to school right now and i dont even now if i am going to change my mind, go with the flow see were life takes you thats my advice
  • The only reason anyone wants you to think about what you want to be when you grow up is so you can properly prepare for it. If you don't know, then the best way to prepare is to get a well rounded education, and practice the things you enjoy and are good at. There are plenty of professions that need people who make others laugh. If you get a broad education with some work in several categories, you should be able to fit into just about anything.
  • I suggest that you don't worry about it. I'm 21, in college, graduating in one year and I still don't really know what I'm doing with my life. High school might help because you'll (hopefully) have a greater variety of classes and will be able to explore things that might actually interest you. Aside from that, the best advice I can give you is to go to college (tech or regular, your choice) because the classes there are so much more varied and you've a much better shot at finding something you really do like. Honestly, though, don't worry about it. Try non-academic things and you might find something to do that you like more. There is waaaaay more to life than school.
  • Definitely don't worry about it. The average person will go through high school, and maybe think of something they want to do. In college they will change their mind at least three times. Then once they graduate, they'll realize they have no interest in doing what they thought and will do something totally different. Then maybe they'll go into graduate school. It's a beautiful cycle, I'm in that last stage as we speak.
  • You're only 14. Yes... If you enjoy ANY classes in school (and be sure to try a lot of them for your "electives"), then that MAY be what you want to lean toward. Still... I had one 3-credit course in college to finish an associates degree in civil engineering, but switched to communications/radio-rv because I enjoyed it more. Then, when I got out, I spent 25 years as a computer programmer. You never really know where life will take you. Right now (at over 50), I'm trying to decide if I want to go back into programming, take classes on web design, learn more about local history, or what. You have too much time ahead of you to be second-guessing yourself. Finish high-school. Go to college. Sometime during that period you will figure something out. It might not be your FIRST choice (and BTW, comedians come from all walks of life), but at least you'll have the degree and be able to make enough to live on.
  • Your right, you made me laugh. . . . Your 'job' right now is to close as few doors as possible.
  • I do have a suggestion. Maybe you should become a famous comedian. ;)
  • Look, I'm 24 years old and I have no idea what I want to do when I grow up either. Life won't end if you don't figure it out right away. Actually, most people go to college more than once, or switch majors, or never really figure it out. Unless you want to be a doctor or some type of job that takes alot of schooling right off the bat, I wouldn't stress about it so much. Though, maybe you could look into acting. You could be a comedy actor, or look into standup comedy, or even voice over acting. Those things make people laugh!
  • Find what makes you most happy, and do that, life is short, so make the best out of it, trust me, you don't want to get stuck at a high paying job and be miserable, i'd rather make minimum wage and do what i love rather than make millions and be miserable, just something to think about.
  • It's okay if you don't know. It's not like it's do or die at 14. Give yourself some time. Maybe you'll figure out something.
  • its simple...be a comedian!
  • I'm 53 and I hope I am going to find out what I am really going to do Real Soon Now.
  • You need time to think before you start focusing on careers. My career choices changed when I got to high school several times because I liked some of my classes in high school. Just wait a bit before deciding completely.
  • Get some books on comedy and go for a stand up comic career. Melvin Helitzer has written several books about the subject.
  • You could be a comedian an actor or both. Look at Lewis Black, George Carlin. They are successful people (well George Carlin is dead due to heart failure) but they lived a good life.
  • It's perfectly fine to be 14 and not have a specific career planed out. There may come a time when you do discover a subject at school that interests you. If not, why not a career in comedy or acting? If something that includes entertaining people takes your fancy, I say go for it!
  • Keep your options open. If there is a local organization the does career accessment and evaluation, see if you can participate. I did that when I was in 11th grade and it was great. I got exposed to all sorts of things and had a better idea of what I wanted to do. Mind you the test said I should be a security guard, which I wanted nothing to do with, but that is beside the point. I volunteered at a local nursing home, which helped me decide if that was for me (it was not). I started college at the local community college which allowed me to experiment with different classes. In the end I changed my major seven times. Now I am in a job that has nothing to do with my major and I love it. If you like to make people laugh consider comedian, teacher, actor, public speaker, clown, talk show host, game show host, writer....
  • Why you be a comedian? If you can make people laugh a lot, you could make a living!
  • true it is pretty simple i agree with all of the answers before ... they all make perfect scence. You should go ahead and be a comedian if that is truly what you like to do.
  • maybe you should be a clown if you like to make people laugh
