Default How did you find your career path/help me please!

Just what the question says...

I've been searching internships for the past 2 hours and feel like I'm just flailing in the ocean. I really don't have a clue what I want to do (am currently taking pre-vet prerequisites and double majoring, but want to consider other options - possibly some not so "hands on" with animals). Last summer was fun and a great learning experience, but it made me realize that I absolutely do NOT want to work on a farm/with hours like that. I don't want to say that it killed my passion, but it definitely left me feeling a bit sick of horses. Of course, two months out of it and I'm re-obsessed, but I don't want to pursue a career that immerses me so much into my hobby that it becomes "work" and is no longer fun.

There are so many choices and I don't have a clue where to begin. I love the sciences and math. I love to write as well, but can see myself hating writing for deadlines. I was fascinated by my anatomy class even though brute memorization of names isn't something that I excel at. Genetics is fascinating and I think I'd find nutrition pretty intriguing as well although I didn't enjoy my professor's teaching style when I took the class. So without further ado, how did you land in the job that you have? Does it relate to your college major? Do you like it? Do you recommend turning a hobby/passion into a career?

And of course, I'm open to any ideas that might fuel a search so I don't feel so 'out in the open.' I do know that I want to interact with people on a daily basis, have relatively regular daytime hours (no more 2 AM ultrasounding please!), earn enough to live comfortably, and do something that requires me to think (ideally a job that requires a degree). I will be earning a dual degree with a BS in Animal Science and a BS in Psychology and possibly a minor in Chemistry. But I don't have a clue where to go from here if I decide not to pursue vet school.
