To be honest, if you're completely unsure of what you're interested in, I'd suggest not even going to community college when there are so many free online courses are available. I'd suggest taking a couple of online classes that seem interesting - Coursera is great and has a huge selection of topics. Devote as much free time as you can to this and see if there's anything you really love, and if there is, then research the shit out of what careers you can go into in that topic!

Don't let people pressure you into going back to school. As long as you're able to support yourself for now, you don't need to be in any kind of rush. You might even discover that you don't need too much more education for whatever you want to go into.

In short, take it slow and figure out what interests you. You're young and have plenty of time!
