I think I'm doing something wrong

I am conflicted with what I want to do as a career. I am happy with working part time jobs, but at the same time, I want to work full time and get job benefits.

I'm currently working in a mix of business administration, human resources, customer service, and health. I was wondering which of those industries would be a good fit for me. I'm still exploring what I like to do, but I want to do something I would be exceptionally happy with. Something that I would never doubt and which won't make me easily anxious. I visited Career Cruising and re-did the career suggestion test. The results were the same from when I was in high school.

Trades and apprenticeships. It looks like it may be my calling. I'm happy that the career suggestion test didn't discriminate my gender, but I know that in trades, women are discriminated. I volunteered for something similar to a trade job before. The guys would offer to help each other, but when it was obvious that I needed help, they just stared. I never volunteered for that job again.

Maybe I'll try the trades when I have enough money to change my career path. I know I like paper work, making tracking sheets, and mapping, so I think I will stick around business administration and see where it will lead me. My plans for this year: work while taking part time accounting classes and maybe pick up a Saturday carpentry course.
