My main interests are creative writing, psychology and teaching but I am also interested in English and art. I was thinking maybe an art therapist or English teacher or a professor in any of the subjects but I don't really know. What are the differences in pay and experience between being a teacher with an education major or a professor? I have a passion for creative writing but figure it will be hard finding a teaching position if I major in it. Also I really want to study psychology or counseling but don't know if I'm right to handle patients, I'm really sensitive and feel that I'll be depressed every day but I want to help people so I don't know. I was figuring there isn't a great demand for psychology teachers either if I wanted to be one but I’m not sure. I mean teaching sounds good because you get to hang out with kids all day and I'd way rather spend my days with youth with innocence and energy than adults in a cubicle, talk about boring, but I've heard a lot of teacher horror stories, like bad kids that are impossible, wages so low you struggle to live off of it, such rigid curriculums and bosses that you can't breathe without permission. I know some are exaggerations but I don't know I'm only a freshman in college so I don't really have any experience in any profession and was hoping for some advice, insight, answers, opinions, experiences, or just anything you have to offer. Thanks!
