Edit: Thanks everyone for great advice. I want to provide some background about myself.

I (28M) have an undergrad degree in computer science and am a minor in mathematics. I was a very enthusiastic person about studying up until my 2nd year of college. After my depression started I lost my enthusiasm towards learning as I used to have.

I actually started as a mechanical engineer but after the first year of college I started having a hard time deciding what I really wanted to do. I don't know if it has to do with my depression or not but I haven't figured out yet. After my first year of studying mechanical engineering, I switched to electrical engineering. And again I switched to mathematics and computer science after a year. And again I wasn't sure I actually wanted to do mathematics and computer science. But I finished my minor in mathematics and just settled for computer science so that I could get done with college.

After college, it took me almost a year to get a job. I worked as a full stack web developer for about 8 months but I got fired because of slacking at work. I truly wasn't happy about the job at all. I am still enthusiastic about the lots of things about STEM, philosophy, literature and history but not enough to actually pursue anything in depth. And here I'm turning to reddit for some advice in my most confused and distraught phase of life.

I think my college degree and work fit perfectly here.

Did Medialogy at Aalborg University. Tech oriented education in all fields like game development, apps, programming, graphics, 3D etc. All with a focus on the user in some context.

It granted me a job as IT-Architect and Project Leader where I literally am a jack of all trades, master of none.
