    What should I do as a career?

    Okay well, I'm almost finished up with school and I'm heading off to University and I'm sort of torn about what to do.

    I'm considering either studying for about 7 or so years to become a doctor, which would pay off a whole lot, but It's not exactly something I want to do. I've pretty much been forced towards this direction because alot of my family are doctors, i know it's a good option but it's not exactly my passion. What I'd really love to do is Graphic Design or something along the lines of that, most of you already know I GFX and such, and it would be a dream of mine to do it.

    I've taken classes which would let me do either of these and I have to make a decision - go with what would benefit me financially, but at the same time have little free time or a life really OR go with my 'dream' job which I'd enjoy and I'm good at , leaving me with alot of free time to use and have a life with but not have financial security.

    DOCTOR OR GRAPHIC DESIGNER, WHAT DO PLIS.

    Well we all have different opinions, but ask yourself this "which one do you want more: money or a job you love". I personally would choose an occupation that I enjoy doing, since I really do not care for money. But when you make the decision make sure that you stick with it, otherwise you will waste some years and a lot of money. @Haze

    Money isn't everything. And what is wrong with being a geek? I'm a geek but I'm also athletic and I don't wear glasses.

    Be a Pornstar.

    Actually, I really dont have a clue, but lets try for a rough idea!
    We will have to think averages here.
    I can't see anyone doing this sort of work for much less than $500 a day 5 days a week = $2,500 per week.
    Around $130 k per year, ($260k) you would need an agent of course and I dont know if you would pay tax, I think there would be a way to minimise that?
    The thing I have noticed about these porn sites on the net (whenever I accidently stumble across one)!!
    is that they cater for all tastes, young teens, old grannies, fat skinny , so I would think it's a job for life.

    Just sayin'.
