I'm a first year Geography student still trying to figure out what I want to do in life. I wanted to go on and get my masters in Urban Planning after I got my BA, but I don't think I gave this plan enough thought. I'm really passionate about Urban Planning, and I know I would love studying it in university, but I'm not sure if it would be a wise career choice.
I attended an open house at the University of Waterloo where an urban planning graduate told us about how Urban Planners do a lot of interacting with the public and how they give a lot of presentations. I don't think I would be any good at this, since I am shy to an insane degree. I'm much better suited for a job where I can work independently without a lot of interaction, and I guess this would not be a career in Urban Planning.
I'm thinking about dropping out of university and studying Computer Programming at a community college. It's not something I'm particularly passionate about, but at least I know I have the right natural skills.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
