Yes - You need to know as much "Useless" information as possible from the beginning, especially as you don't currently have an IT Role - You don't know what you will need to know when you do find that job.I will get the comptia done before I do that to give myself a fighting chance.

I feel like I'm learning useless stuff right now.. like the difference between led and LCD and all the sub sections with them. Do I need this sort of information over load?
As Nightscare says the more money is now with Cloud and Development, however I would still do the CompTIA exams if you can.
You can teach yourself about everything Cloud but with no experience no one will hire you over someone with no qualifications but 5 years experience.
Do the A+, look for bog standard 1st line support at an MSP and then build your knowledge from there.
