Hello all, I've been caught up with school this past week. What with the school year coming to a close in 12 weeks I have to decide what courses I'll be taking next year.
Man it's a tough decision. I don't want to pursue science next year only, but I'm willing to take it up the year after. I want to spend my free elective next year for journalism. I like journalism a lot. But since physiology (study of the human body) would better 'aid' me in being a Doctor I should do that. Plus, all of my friends are taking it so we have some 'support system'. Can you say peer pressure? Honestly, I've never asked my friend's for help as much as I thought this year when I decided to take Chemistry -Honors heheh-, so I doubt I'll need them next year if I took Physiology.
Now that I think about, what ever made me want to devote 11 years of my life to Medicine? I vaguely remember my parents, no not vaguely, clearly, remember them always saying, "You're going to grow up and be a doctor :D" I call that the Immigrant dream. But it isn't bad, being a doctor, or having parents who want you to be one, it's just not for me. Just because you get good pay doesn't mean I'm going to enjoy spending my life working 9-5 for the next 40 years until retirement. I shudder just thinking about it.
And since I've started rethinking my whole career goal, what will I major in college? Seriously, I've planned out every single thing in my life and as a friend had to yell at me, life can't be planned (Could've found that in some fortune cookie). Only God knows when I'm going to get married, and when I'll have children -I planned what age- But as to what I'll major in University, it had previously been a Major in PreMed and a Minor in Child Psychology, I'll probably go with Psychology and a minor in Journalism.
I don't want to be constrained to the same boring routine, and believe or not, touching sicks kids (I aspired to be a Pediatrician) isn't all that fantastic. Maybe it's because I lack the 'Messiah Complex' so many Doctors have. To go out and save the world one vaccine at time. I think that the pen is mightier than the sword (but not the needle) and would rather use my words and experiences to fight all the injustice in the world. I don't have experience at the moment, but don't worry I will!
So in the meantime, I have until next Wednesday to figure out what to pick, Physiology or Journalism (or another science?). I have to break it to my parents sometime but they're probably not going to care until it's time to pick out colleges. I don't think they even know what classes I have now .-.;
Oh and as a side note, my Chem teacher keeps trying to goad us all into AP(Advanced Placement) Environmental Science even though I'll be having 2 APs next year. Sorry, I don't care about the environment that much to give up an elective for it.
