    OK, so I'm currently doing my A levels. I'm a fairly smart student, planning to go study in my country (the US) next year. I don't know what I want to become. Many say engineering but I don't like plenty of maths and physics. Parents want medicine but it takes a lot of years and it's not easy by any means + medical school is expensive on top of college fees and most importantly many say MCAT is impossibly difficult? Well, my favourite subject is Biology, but I don't want to do something seemingly a bit minor like microbiology due to low salaries. All-in-all, your two cents on this?

    Has there been something you really wanted to be when you were younger? Think about it, many people recieve their calling when they are younger but are too young to think it through and therefore miss it. But the calling will come again, and you have to be on the look out for it. I got this from a book called Mastery
