Okay so I am most likely going to go to GA Tech and major in Engineering, but I don't full understand each branch of engineering. So if someone could explain differences between a mechanical engineer, civil engineer, chemical engineer, aerospace engineer, nuclear engineer, etc. I would really appreciate it!

Welcome to PF!

This is a very basic and broad question requiring a very long answer. It isn't the sort of thing that can be easily answered in a forum, but it is the sort of thing that is easily answered by Google or Wikipedia. You really should start there, read for an hour or so, then come back with much more specific questions.

I think you should change your major to business/management because it seems like you want everyone to do all the busy work for you whilst you go play video games/golf/etc.

I am a retired Senior Field Engineer, so I want you to know about this area of engineering. Here is a pretty good description of what Field Engineers do:
