Basically, if you could have whatever you wanted, what would you have?

I think about the many different professions out there and how someone would go about achieving to that career so I will show you some ideas I had and I'm intrigued to see what other people might do if they could have all the freedom to do as they wanted. Maybe to be a general at the Ministry of Defence or to be a Professor in some science.. anyway I'll show you some examples.

I'd choose my current degree, especially when it is made of 2 major subjects and I can further continue to study in any of the two
