I know you have probably been told this, but there is ALWAYS a way to continue your education. Loans are no fun, but if you don't have money or scholarships, they can be the way to go. And you can always go to a community college, get good grades, gain scholarships and then transfer to a university. But if you don't want to continue your education, then you obviously don't have to.
Yeah, I was a theatre major at first. Actually, technically I was a political science major first, then switched to theatre, and on the first week of school I switched to international studies. xD I read a script for a show that I was required to audition for, and the script was so strange and dumb, I was like "eff this". But I think journalism and political science as a dual-major is a good way to go. I'm pretty confident about my decision this time.
