    I am a very capable student. This is because I am extremely motivated and I dedicate most (nearly of) my time studying. This is because I enjoy the topic I study. My best quality is the vast curiosity I have on deep and philosophical concepts such as physics and maths, simply because it helps is understand how everything works.
    I am also a very open minded and optimistic in general terms; I think that there's always room for improvement. This gives me the quality which will help me adapt and mould myself to almost any career path which is semantically linked to STEM.

    The issue (to save you time):
    I enjoy physics the most. It's so interesting and I like having open debates on different theories.
    I was told that physics isn't a very useful degree, especially when compared to medicine.
    I can become a doctor (cogito ergo sum) but I have been many reading books by junior doctors and how they "did not expect medicine to be like how they experienced it". The main issue is the fact that you have to work overtime and effectively don't have enough time to enjoy life. I don't want to spend the rest of my life doing something I don't enjoy.

    What do you guys think I should do?

    Always do what you enjoy over what you feel “expected” or feel that you “have” to do. Happiness will not come from doing an 9-5 job with overtime with 3 extra years of education doing a topic your heart is not set on. Pay aside, being a doctor is long and hard and mentally challenging and not for the faint of heart.
