what were you excelling the most at ? if you don't know what might interest you, then you should go in a field in which you had great grades and where you feel confident and sure of yourself. A sickinengly shy dude is not gonna be a teacher for instance. Someone who had uber bad grades in sports is not gonna be a sports teacher or a coach fitness or something.
I still think I'm trying to figure out what interests me
I think science is the right path for me in terms of study because I am able to get pretty decent grades in it, then I guess I just really have to start thinking about where it leads me after that in terms of occupation. There really are so many options nowadays (both in terms of degrees and occupations) and I think that's one of the problems
Hope that all goes well with chosing your master degree

I do Commerce at Curtin.
I do Biomedical Science at UWA.

Seriously, what the shit am I doing with my life?
I'm starting to wish I fucked up high school just so I could've done something I enjoyed rather than what my parents thought was "best for me"
and yes! That's another scary part, like what if u change ur mind again. we can't do this to ourselves forever.
i just finished 2nd year of pharmacy. what about you? and what do u plan on doing now?
can't we go back to cavemen days when life was all about sleeping and eating?
I know right? I'm so jealous of my friends who are enjoying their degrees and close to finishing
Especially seeing as some of them I got way better grades than at school
School is built up to be such a big deal, but once you've finished and are at uni, what you did at school is pretty irrelevant.
I'm exactly like you also in that I initially chose what my parents wanted me to do. I did Engineering for one year in 2011 and HATED it so much omg
I think it's just important that we make our own decisions, rather than what our parents want us to do. That's the advice I'd give to anyone leaving high school.
I was actually thinking of switching to...pharmacy
I'm doing biomedical science so it's a lot of similar units, at least at my uni (UWA) so it's easy to transfer. If I switch I have way more choice of what units I can do, so I think it's better. At least semester doesn't go back for another three months so I have some time to decide.
Hope it all works out for you!
I just find it cool how a lot of us here go through the same problems...many of us are/were closet gays who can't tell our parents and/or have trouble deciding our futures after highschool. All of us seem to be a similar age too. At least we have each other
