comment How can I figure out if programming is right for me?
+1 for pointing out 3D modelling is not a good starting point, It's a lot of mathematics also IMO. I think this is the main thing here, always start with the easy things, when you try to run too fast you end up taking more time (weird isn't it?)

comment Science degrees that are complementary to programming
I appreciate the help, as I said, I do not think at all that I'll know everything. And after all the CompSci responses I'm considering studying it more than before, but still I'd like to ask: if I do decide to do a degree that is not CompSci/Software Engineering, what do you think is best for a programmer after those?

@JoelEtherton Thank you, I see what you mean and I cretainly have some thinking to do. One last question though, if I do decide to do a degree that is not CompSci/Software Engineering, what do you think is best for a programmer after those?

@DocBrown Math is pretty interesting, it's probably a little less interesting to me than the topics I mentioned but interesting nontheless

@TomSquires I wouldn't really say that CS interests me the most, I think studying Physics/Chemistry/Biology will be more interesting, but the careers themselves in these I think are more scarce and more specific. The best thing will probably be to have a career as a programmer that also incorporates Physics/Chemistry/Biology, but again it's pigeon-holing myself to a specific niche. Math also sounds like an interesting idea, it's pretty interesting and seems pretty close to CS but with more stuff that I don't know

@JoelEtherton Can you give me your thoughts about the math degree idea, it seems that CS is Math + Computers, probably most of what I don't know is the math part, maybe do a math degree that will probably teach me more, and from answers here it seems that it's also pretty good to get a job as a programmer.

yeah I changed the last part a bit, it wasn't very well-put

Being a scientist, can you tell me what you studied and how you incorporate it with computer science?

Don't get me wrong I do not think for one second that I will know all the material or finish a CS degree very easily, I just think that like you, some of the classes will be tedious and uninteresting to me.
