Tell me Scheme is not dead and there's a future for it. I can't help reading about it but I have this awful feeling that I'm wasting my time because it's absolutely useless in the real world and that I should learn Javascript instead.

Who cares if a language is dead or not? You shouldn't learn scheme because you want to work with the language professionally (in fact that might even make it *less* fun to work with), but because you want to learn more about programming and computational thought on a more fundamental level.
