    okay first thanks in advance for whom ever will read this boring longs topic and give me an advice icon_rolleyes.gif

    I am 27 years old been living in UK for six years then moved for Australia for another two years i was studying aerospace engineering and now I am holding bachelor in this
    i never wanted to be an engineer specially in aircraft and all of this crap its just not my interest i always been dreaming in producing movies or going to medical school
    so that i decided to do my A level again and get new scholarship and move to USA for studying I am just very confused first if I am doing the right thing or not medical school or art and movies my friends think I am going crazy but I am not i just want to be who i am want to do the things i like not what my family want it me to
    going to USA will be big challenge also for me because i do not know which state should i choice I am not only going to studying im also dreaming in finding my men of dreams lol maybe who knows so im kinda of into night life and busy places but studying and good unis come first
    i sheared this with my mom and she thinks it's better to do PhD in something not related to the aviation in some how but still will be in engineering which i hate
    I am just feeling very confused lost and don't know guys what really you think

    I has an advice!

    You answered your own question here: "i just want to be who i am want to do the things i like not what my family want it me to"

    Do the things you like? What's REALLY stopping you? Is it your family? Nope. Is it your friends? Nope. Is it you? Yup.

    Life's too short too be living with regrets. It sounds storybook and cliche' to say that but it honestly is true. Follow your hearts dreams and desires and you'll become a happier person in the end. There's no time like now. Good luck!

    This is why I asked that question.

    A doctor is a very noble calling. Tell Mom that saving lives is a powerful thing to do, and you wish to do it. icon_wink.gif

    warmly,

    That's actually a great way to look at the question.

    One problem I had in life was the question "what do you want to be?" and I never had an answer for that. I was never able to see myself as being anything but who I am. Living as me, as who I honestly am was always important to me and I can usually spot a fraud pretty easily so I had trouble seeing myself as being a fireman or being a doctor or being a lawyer or being a ditch digger because none of that was being me.

    I looked at the function of jobs of course and that helped guild me, but thinking in terms of being a certain something, instead of in terms of doing a certain something as the overriding factor of making a career decision distracted me.

    Lately I've been looking more at this idea of what do you want to do and then finding what I need to be to accomplish what I want to do. It is much clearer for me to see than it ever was to think of what I wanted to be and then consider what I could do with that. It's probably just a hair split, but for me it plays a more significant role in how I approach that decision making.

    I agree with some of the others. First figure out what is of interest to YOU and what you think you may like to pursue. Where does your interests lie? The medical field has a variety of avenues that you can pursue once you complete the education.

    Once you figure that out, then decide where you'd like to obtain the education. What country would you prefer to study. Also, the university that would best fit your desired studies. You may find that the US is not your first choice.

    Whatever it is you decide, make the decision based on what YOU want, not what everyone else things you should do. Good luck!

    It can be a process as you grow older and separate from family and you realize that you have to live for yourself and what you want to be to be happy and content in life. From the 2 occupations you mention that you would like to pursue, you could do both in Los Angeles, CA. The city has excellent schools and I am sure you know is the movie capital of the world. California is a great place to live and be gay. Good Luck.

    hmm money obviously isn't an issue to you huh.....so you have a engineer degree..mind you not from an American college which is ten times better. You hold a degree within a well respected field...and your not going to use it? Then you going to move to the united states...mind you, you will be paying out of state tuition..(which is fucking crazy) .you wont be able to work as you will be on a student visa...but hey at least you will have the night life....your such a waste...That arab money must be too much for you alone to spend huh?

    I highly recommend you spend some time studying English, in my opinion, you will find it difficult to progress with any future employer with your current level of grammar.

    I employ a person whose technical skills are excellent, but I can't offer him a team leader or management role as he is too difficult to understand by our customers, which is a key requirement when dealing with discussions and disputes.

    It seems that with your educational background, you'll soar through pre-med and med school with flying colors. But only approach this world if you love helping people from all backgrounds and can make a true connection as you help them. In this world, your learning will never stop and you'll have the adventure of a lifetime, not to mention a secure future.

    Best wishes to you.
