I'm sure the people who know you irl can give a better list than just one thing you're good at doing. Give yourself some time. Smile And get hugs. You're not useless! <3

RE: Feeling Useless
Try this:

Write down a number (10 should suffice) of stories from your life when you did something because it was fun, interesting or challenging for you (that means you did it because you wanted to do it, not somebody else).

Then analyze each story as to what skills you used. After that look for the 5 skills you used the most. Chances those skills will ones you are especially good at.

Next make a list of the 5 topics / areas of interest / hobbies you like the most.

When you those two lists, talk to 5 people, to get an idea what types of jobs would fit you interests and skills.

Pick 3 different jobs / fields of work and find people who work in those areas. Talk to them to get an idea of what it is like to do it on a daily basis.

If you find nothing that you find interesting, repeat the last two steps.

Finally, finding a job that suits you is a process of trial and error. That means every job is ultimately a set of trade-offs. Factors I would consider are:
- Work content (Do you like at least some off it? Because if not Frusty )
- Career Options (In the firm, the industry, does the name of the company give you options when changing employers or does it kill them?)
- Workplace Atmosphere (colleagues, supervisors etc.)
- Opportunities for growth and development (if you realize on entry that you are the smartest person in the room something is wrong (unless of course you are a genius Yes )
- And yes money

I once studied the relationship between different Rhododendron species using a molecular biology approach. PCR, sequencing, computer analysis and stuff.

If you are in university, you can try a animal genetics program like that.

Want something? Then do something.

Still in highschool. I am really going for evolutionary biology. Studying the relationships and evolution of both extinct and extant fauna.
