I will soon be out of high school, I want to go to university because it would give me better job prospects, and graduates are statistically shown to earn more on average than people without a degree. The thing is, I seriously don't know what field to choose. The only thing I was ever mildly passionate about is programming, but I have a weird love-hate relationship with it. When I was in middle school, I would play around with gamemaker, unity, and the minecraft mod computercraft, nowadays I occasionally make simple browser games in javascript. While I do enjoy programing when things are going smoothly and my code works the way it should, if I get stuck and I can't figure something out it can get extremely frustrating. If there's a bug in something I'm making and I can't figure it out within an hour I usually just drop the project. I don't code often though, I'm pretty bad at it, and I only do it about once a month. Maybe if I got good this problem would fix itself. I'm thinking about going to a university related to AI since I find the topic interesting, but I would have to code a lot and I'm afraid I would start hating it over time. How do I choose what to do after high school? I seriously have no idea what I will do once I'm done with it. Sorry for the poor English, it's not my first language and I've never read a book in it.

longwinded, self-centered blog posting is the same as doing drugs, cocaine is a dopamine reuptake inhibitor.

Heavy topic, OP.

First of all, this is something very important that needs time and a lot of thinking.
Therefore don't pressure yourself.
Take your time but make sure to uphold daily tasks so you don't go full hiki.

I would simply ask myself what you like, what you are good at and what you are interested in.
Search around if jobs in these fields exist, if you can study such things.
On the other hand think about things you dislike, things you are really bad at and things that don't interest you at all.
It's important to scratch fields that contain things like that.

Furthermore I advise you to keep the following in mind:
Your satisfaction is the most important thing. High wage, cool benefits, well regarded jobs and such are nice and all but this is not what matters.
You should like what you do, or at least make sense of it, so you see a purpose.

It's hell if you are stuck at something you hate but you need the paycheck in order to pay your bills.

Well I hope you find something, OP, don't be afraid to try out things and don't be afraid to drop them if they are not to your liking.
