I need to find a good career that suites my interests and my future plans. A career that I'll enjoy and make a living from.

Personally I have given a lot of thought to this sort of thing, but... erm.. if you want anyone to help you, you are going to have to put things like your interests and stuff....

Take a personality quiz or two, perhaps even a career aptitude test. College Board offers great places to start. Enneagram tests are great and usually free(the best ones are). Find your strengths and weaknesses and they'll help you determine a career. Plus your plans can always change most kids in their first year of college change their major at least once. It's ok to write "Undecided" on your college applications.

Thank you! That really helps a lot. Do you have any links to sites and tests like those?

Go to the collegeboard website and create an account, you'll have to anyway one day since this is where the SATs are offered and look for a personality/career test. As for a personality test online, look pstypes on a blogspot website for a really good test

You could do both writing and ballet! Who says you only have to stick to one career? (: I'm planning to have two careers, so maybe you could too!

Well some of them can be, like say 20 minutes. I like them because they give great insight into planning for college.
