If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I’d be in school forever. Why, you may ask? Because I love learning. Some may think it’s crazy, but there is just something really fun to me about having to read through a chapter and take notes on it. I could change the world with this by studying in certain fields such as medicine and philosophy and possibly helping to find a cure for a disease or forming theories for unanswered questions.
What I’ll do to make my dream a reality is first, graduate with my double-major in accounting and information systems. After that, I’ll look for a job in my field and get to a point in my life where I can settle down and live comfortably. I will then challenge myself while working to go back to school and study other subjects in order to expand my knowledge base.
After my break where I would be saving up enough to go back to school, I would first study medicine. This has always been an interesting subject to me and I feel like it would come easiest. After I am at a point in my studies where I can formulate hypotheses or run experiments, I will go back for a degree in philosophy, or something of that matter. With this, I can spend my free time not only on experiments, but also writing proofs and theories.
