I'm going to be an undergraduate freshman in college soon. I was deciding to major in Medicine but recently I had a conversation with someone and he kind of made me rethink my situation. He noticed I'm very thought oriented towards technology and renewable energies. I talked to him about the future of our planet and how we can engineer ways to do this and that and basically he said I should consider going into the field of engineering. Now, as much as I'm fascinated by the field of medicine, when I look at the perspective of what I want to work with or on, I think maybe it's more interesting to conduct research and work with concepts to build things or design new things/improvements than actually work on people. The thing that's causing me conflict is that I also want to be able to live comfortably and enjoy the luxuries in life a doctor's salary can afford. This is my problem, it seems like many people go through this but also many people I know are already on track. I want to be one of the latter.
