    I'm somewhat of a born traveler. I frequently go on holiday to new destinations and love exploring new cultures and languages. I'm more of an artsy kind of student, although capable at science (I prefer exploring science outside of the classroom).

    I'm considering becoming a writer, an essayist/journalist like if Christopher Hitchens and Sartre were infused. I want a job that I can do in my own workspace, take with me on the road, not confining me to an office everyday. However I want something secure, as I plan to pursue my ambition to be an actor on the side. Any suggestions?

    petroleum engineer, you can move to canada, saudi arabia, australia etc

    Geology is on the move too. I was going to do it until I changed my mind and went with the above (petroleum engineering)

    You are thinking about 'becoming a writer'? Write now. You have had the travels, you have the keyboard. Write a blog. You might be the greatest - you might not. Making predictions on what you think you might be like in the future won't write an essay.

    Concentrate on getting good qualifications, get as well-paid a job as possible and pay to travel where you want. Working and travelling are very different to going somewhere for pleasure.
