I want to have adventures and really live a rich life- not be stuck in a building all of the time. I was thinking the military maybe because it would be free to an extent, but I'm scared to do that to be honest. But when I think about it, I can't think of anything more rewarding than having saved someone's life. But still I don;t know, there's just so many paths I could take.

I have a question for you guys- do you think living a life like a doctor working in the third world can really entail a happy life? I've been thinking about the quote "be the change you want to see in the world" - do you think this is rational or a reasonable way to think about life?

Fuck the military. Find something creative to do building stuff instead.

Or how do you feel about animals? Becoming a veterinarian should be easier than becoming a doctor, I think, plus it's still hands-on, you're saving something living, you can use your biology education and depending on where and what kind of job you get, you might get to travel around and see many different animals in different places.
