AlohaChris- I think being a surgeon would be one of the best fits for me- I get to physically do something and see the results like that news artical someone posted says. But, the schooling will take a very long time and after talking to other kids in medical school, they say its hard to have a job and study medicine at the same time. By the time I actually start my career I'll be in my mid thrities and I don't want to start my life that late. I wanted to become a doctor so I could help people who can't afford it or have no where to turn to like in third world countries- but after reading a books called "mountains beyond mountains" I see that it's more of a political problem than a healthcare one...and I don't think there's any place for me in it to be honest. I really just want to make a mark on the world. So I'm thinking, maybe becoming an architect would be better than a doctor who just patches things up in places where they will inevitably fall apart again. Idk, Im feeling sort of lost again.
