I'm almost to that moment, since I will be getting my associates soon and I have not idea what to do, or how to move one once I get it. I know what I defintely don't wanna do, but the career I'd like to pursue (a dream of mine) is unstable even IF I am able to find someone to mentor me or help me out, which is why I may just try toget a BA in something unrelated to the dream, or my second dream, but my family also wants me to continue, seeing as all my cousins are doing greater things like teaching, and being an RN with almost her doctrate. I found a short program that touches on the subject of my dream but it's just like a two month class. I still have a while to think about, and a lot of classes that will touch on other subjects I've been interested in but I'd like to just figure things out before it's too late

Well I wanted to be a doc when I was young and it always kind of stayed in the back of my mind. When I was in highschool though, I started thinking of other career choices, like engineering, or a stock broker. I was still on the fence even while I was majoring in bio during undergrad, but after a lot of thought I realized a couple things. Engineering was my favorite, medicine was my second favorite, and even though I find the stock market extremely interesting there's no reason that I cannot invest while having another job. I also realized that although engineering is my favorite, it doesn't pay well and in order for me to be allowed to have control of entire projects I would have to be one of the very best and kiss a lot of asses. So it came down to medicine, I find it interesting, it makes you feel good knowing that you're actually making a difference, it's challenging, it pays well allowing me to invest later on and give me a stable financial life, it also gives me the finances to have projects like fixing cars and other things of that nature, it would also allow me to work in biomedical engineering if I choose. It took a loooooong time to come to my decision and I doubted myself a lot, but I know I've made the right decision. Honestly, just really think about what you want out of life and what type of lifestyle you want.1
