Crossroads

im begining to feel like Lily in "How i met your mother"

u see, i really have no idea what im gonna be when i "grow up" annnnnd whats worse, im being forced to grow up in like an year [thats when i finish chse]

not good..

due to pressures from the powers that be [a.k.a the powers that actually pay for my entire education] to decide NOW! ive been acting out the scene where Lily is trying to "find herself"

heres an example

me: Im going to be a doctor!

three months later

me: Im going to be an interior designer!

four weeks later

me again : Im going to be an interior designer AND and architect!

three days later

me: okay not an architect/interior designer


and noww im like "im going to be a PASTRY CHEF!"

dont ask..

soooo basically, if i dont decide on what im going to be by the end of june 2008, im doomed. screwed. hung upside down on a sticky rope.

coz then ill have to be a *gasp*doctor*shudder* ... which is okay, but not exactly my cup of tea.

    You? Being a doctor gives me the creeps. God knows what you'll do to the patients...

    *runs away*

    Its hard isnt it, I think we should have an internship sort of thing where we can test the waters of different areas..

    I am 2 months short of finishing my studies, rather my internship ( i am done with exams and all!! yaya!)..It, the whole experience was totaly different from what i envisioned studying medicine would be, no body ever tells u about the time, the frustrations, the hurdles u face when u actually study it.. ts a long journey and it takes a lot, if its not your cup of tea dont do it, but if its what u really wanna do you should theres nothing as fullfilling as seeing a patient go home after recovery :)

    P.S if u want to know anything just holla :) id be happy to help in anyway I can

    well i decided day before yesterday...been having 2 thoughts all the way thru chse, IT stuff or engineer thing...but ive finally made my decision :D with jus 7 days for my exams to finish, actually what help me decide was the high pay :D kekek

    i heard it takes 6 years to be a doc with mbbs-12000RF from IGMH i think, and another 4yrs to be specialized...but after being specialized salary is around 30000RF

    dunno abt being interior dec or architect, but being a doc is hard work inge..
    jus dun worry u'll make ur decision soon, jus ask the powers forcing u to have a bit of patience...u can even decide during the days u get after the exams ennu, before u get the results?? or one thing u cud do is, work in the fields u think u wanna be, then u'll know what interests u most...go to some hospital or architect plc...

    anyways good luck with it

    You shouldn't worry too much about it. You're exactly in the first of a several crisis of "what do I want to do with my life". Do as your heart says or what you think you'd like to do, don't feel pressured to decide.

    By the way, I'm Shahiz friend from England :)

    Hi Bulhaa,

    Its me again, your Ms. Anonymous friend from the Philippines.

    How are you?

    Yeah, you're not alone in that path. Anyone in your stage gets to experience the "big leap."

    Mind if I suggest a couple of things to help you plan and decide for your future?

    Okay, so here goes:

    One, choose a course that you would pursue as a serious profession thru the rest of your life. I mean, the kind of profession that would keep you surviving and independent and would not leave you poor and desperate and feeling like a depression victim. (And I mean until you grow gray hair!) Yes, a profession that is financially rewarding. Unless, you want to be a billionaire quick...there are other means. The dark means. Hahaha, just kidding.

    Seriously, if you want to pursue the medical practice, besides the monetary aspect of it, being a doctor is a noble mission. The ability to cure sickness is a mission at the same time. It is both purposed to help people in pain and suffering; and it is meant to help regardless whether the patients can't pay or filthy rich.

    I know you're familiar with this Spiderman movie line:
    WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBLITY. Once you graduate from the medical course, you have the power to save lives and make a big positive difference in the society your in. You'll be one of those contributors for the better good. And you can call the shots when you get patients that can afford to pay you more than well, if you prove yourself to be a specialist in a certain area. It is best to grow to maturity with not just aiming to get big bucks but to become a person of great worth.

    If you intend to become a designer or architect, the same principles apply. Creativity with purpose is noble and rewarding.

    The best to you, always.

    hey bulhaa,
    u must be going thru a tough time now. don't worry too much. it might help to talk to a career counsellors if you r so unsure. there are also some good sites which may be of help. why dont u surf around and see. take some tests, read some articles and most importantly try to find out what are the 'things u like' and 'things u dont like' about the careers which interest u! This may sound like a big boring task but beleive me it'll help.make out a list...
    From what i know of u , u r very 'computer friendly'hahaha so why not check the careers in IT field?
    if being a doctor is what U want, then fine. if it is what your 'powers' want.. then its no good at all. This is an important decision.. what u decide now will affect your future.. so be very sure and evaluate all the options before u make the decision.
    im not trying to scare u.. i just want to help.
    bulhaa, im sure u'll make the right decision :)
    cheers
