Do you think I'm a failure?

I am a mathematician and love serving people desert/shakes/ice-cream. I'm a decent writer too and completed 2 years of Calculus in High School. Those are the only things that keep me going in this world. However, you have to be highly intelligent to earn a math-degree. Standards are very high above... show more I am a mathematician and love serving people desert/shakes/ice-cream.

Those are the only things that keep me going in this world. However, you
have to be highly intelligent to earn a math-degree. Standards are very high
above Calculus. I fell out of love with the whole college-system. No regrets.

I also looked up working online and it seems people from India, the Philippines
etc. really are undercutting online industries in almost every field. The goal
was so I can work 20 hours/week from home, but most people tell me that is
a really bad idea.

Anyway, at this point I'd like to work at two ice-cream parlors and get it over
with it. 50/hours per week at minimum-wage = $1,900/month after taxes.
I'd rather do that then work at a boring job as a general office clerk. I'm going
to talk to my parents and see what I can do.
