Ive had so many ideas in the past that i have systematically removed and re added. the current list so far is....

- Game designer (had an idea for a game for a while)
- (The name is not coming to me but something about computer systems)
- Teacher
- Engineer (no specific field)
- Business Law
- Risk management
- Any marketing or finance position in a business
- Forensic Scientist (funny story, boarder patrol agent told me that you should not be with the police force like 500 times when we were going through customs with him. he said its a huge mistake.)
- Something related to genetics
- Researcher (lots of fields here, so im leaving it open)

Past items on the list but can be added back are:
- Criminal law (if anyone can figure out why, cookie for them)
- Programming (hard coding)
- Pro Gamer
- Youtuber
- Comic artist (this may be obvious why its not on the list)
- Anything involving music

I'm trying to become a small animal veterinarian!
I love learning about animals of all kinds.

But on the side I'm going to do music production and management.

- Criminal law (if anyone can figure out why, cookie for them)
If its something personal then I probably won't get it but from what I've been learning in law it could be the reasons why I don't want to go into that area. Your either getting hard criminals let of easy or out of jail or if your on the other side your watching the said criminal walk out laughing at you the majority of the time no matter how much of a case you put up against them. Our amazing justice system people! That's why I dont want to do it.

Oh and go for business law as you said if you choose a proffession in law. The high class lawyers in that field get TONS of money. But my teacher kinda said your work will kinda become your life with the amount you get so I dont know. Either way there your choices and good luck with whatever you do! :lol-fox: and that goes for everyone else also.

Its the same reason for me. I cant stand defending someone who i for sure know is guilty, or prosecuting someone who is clearly not guilty. The guilt for me and the client if i mess up would also be too great as well.

The only problem with law right now is that even if lawyers do get paid large amounts, there are just too many lawyers in business and criminal law, so its hard to even find just a starting frim to be in. you have to remember that this is after law school.

And it seems i forgot a few items on the current list:

-something in the pharmaceutical industry
-Acting (with the condition i can make a living off it)

Yeah that may have sounded bad from me. I'm not just blinded by money. If I was then I would probably go into criminal law cause I wouldn't care. Yeah I know that there is a ton of lawyers out there so it's good that you sound like that you've got a few backup professions. But if I may say a few things. It seems like its hard to get a job in ANY proffession now. Over here you get people with amazing qualification who have been job hunting for years which is kind of worrying :?. There is a ton of people in these areas of law but think. Some of these arnt even worth calling lawyers. There just people who have a basic idea of it and have jumped into the proffession to grab some cash. That PPI thing is a prime example. This is particulary aimed at you but if your really good at law and put in a lot of work to understand it then it may not matter how many are in the proffession if you stand out from the crowd as being very good at it. It will still probably be hard to get a job in it but still I think I will probably go into it. There are loads of separate areas so no one lawyers can know literally every area of law. Well there is probably a few who do. Yeah I don't even know if your choosing law are not. Just felt like saying all this :fox-:):. (Acting sounds good! We will see you on the big screen in the future :lol-fox:)

Law is just a huge subject that has a ton of opportunities (except for this terrible job market and too many people who want to be lawyers now). Its mostly about debate, trying to prove that YOU are right and all who oppose are WRONG. Like ive said before, i just have some moral problems with criminal law, but anything that doesn't involve the life of someone, i can do almost any law (or even make laws in the government!). I find that a judge is more of a suitable position for me if i wish to delve into criminal law.

TBH, i probably don't have much future for acting, unless I get some sort of huge breakthrough. Even though i have been on TV before (I was in a ad when i was a baby, i still have the poster, I don't really want to share what ad it was) looking at today's actors, they have alot of skill. I even have someone at my school who is in a production company as an actor, and another one who works at a theater for Tech as a job. Not much opportunity there unless you start now and show amazing talent.

I'm honestly so indecisive with my future, its gonna bite me when i get into uni. I really want to see what psychology is all about (it seems really interesting) but there isn't much of a job future there.I should also add athlete to the list if i ever do amazing in my uni career.

I'd like to work in criminal law or something similar uvu
Or perhaps as a forensic scientist?
Maybe even a job within the FBI

I've been told I could have a future in acting or performing. It's a nice idea, but not terribly realistic. oTL I sing and play the piano, so a job involving those skills would be nice.

Still haven't made up my mind on whether to focus on crime or shoot for the stars. Well, I still have a couple years.

Something to do with stage/screen ranking in order of preference (best first)

1) Actor (first choice for university course)
2) Musician (In a band)
3) Screen/playwright
4) Soundtrack composer
5) Director

Well, I've just started organising a small film project to be produced hopefully during the six weeks of holiday I have at my disposal. So hopefully it will aid all of the above.

a masseuse- because I have friends who are always so stressed about work and school so I'd be useful that way.

a Cosmologist- because I have questions about the universe, life, and time that I'm willing to die for just to get the answers. meaning spend an entire lifetime just to get one answer, it doesn't have to be a big question it could be a small one and I'd be happy.

a physical trainer for my football real-life Because the people there are super nice and the players are always getting injured so I'd be helping once I graduate. plus they're like family and I would hate to leave them all behind

Meteorologist. Been fascinated with weather since surviving a tornado when I was four. But then there is being an author... I might work with animals with zoology... not entirely sure yet... (Probably meteorology... but so much math...)

I have 4 choices for what I want as a future career.


My first choice: A lawyer.

In all seriousness though, I have grown an interest in the legal world.
I usually always enjoy debates and arguments, and I have a really good memory when it comes to vocabulary and terms and such.

My second choice would be a job in a video game company, working as an animator or programmer or something.
Of course, this would be pretty fun, but it would still require a lot of training, learning how to program more and such.

My third choice would be as a professional pianist.  I take piano lessons, and a lot of my friends have told me that I'm pretty good on the keys.
Still, as far as realism goes... Kind of lacking.  :?

My fourth and final choice would be as a scientist, working in the field of epidemiology or nanotechnology.  These subjects have interested me ever since I watched the movie Contagion.  Plus, working at the CDC would be pretty awesome.

Honestly my fondest dream has always been to start a business that could eventually run itself and then never have to work another day in my life.

I want to work in the Animation industry, preferably as a storyboarder/character designer.

I also can play the piano but I can't really teach because I'll usually just end up spewing vulgarities so??? Also I can sing but I don't see it bringing me anywhere lmao.
