I have always been very indecisive about what I want to major in. There are so many different things that have interested me over the years. I thought I had settled on a career plan in the astronomy and astrophysics field, but then I began to research and learn about how difficult it is to get a job in that field. I have been told that even if you graduate with a Ph.D. in astrophysics, that is no guarantee you will get a job doing astrophysics. People told me that many of these people ultimately retool for a different career. These kinds of things scared me and discouraged me. Recently, I've come to the realization that I am very much like certain well-known individuals. Let me list a few: Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, Bill Nye, Bill Maher, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and there are many others... My point here is that, like these people, I love being involved in current events and "world topics." These people are (examples) outspoken critics of religion, advocates of science, heavily involved in political topics and discussion, and frequently weigh in on world events. I have found that this applies to me as well. That's who I am. In high school and college so far, I've taken several classes in history, politics, religion, etc. So I did some research on these people and found that pretty much all of them produce a LOT of work OUTSIDE their actual "major field." Richard Dawkins is simply a biology professor, but he has written many books about science, many books about religion, has appeared a lot on television, and has been involved in political and world topics. Bill Nye was a mechanical engineer for Boeing, but he became a science educator through TV. He's an advocate of science topics and frequently participates in debates against fundamental religious people. Bill Maher is a comedian but is perhaps equally as known for his views on religion, science, and politics. I have settled on the fact that this is kind of what I might want to do in life. I'm not sure I want to go to the same workplace and do the same work every day for my entire life. Because I am interested in many different topics like science, religion, world events, and politics, and would ideally like to participate in them all. So how did these guys do it? What allowed them to become successful in this way? Anyone can decide to write a book, but how does one end up being so well-known, successful, and wealthy (like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, etc.)? How do they get selected to appear on television in debates, interviews, and shows? I've begun to think that what I major in might not be as important as what I do after that. Because these guys have all kinds of different degrees...biology, engineering, astrophysics, philosophy, English, and history. Also, I don't feel like I could be the "best astrophysicist ever." I am nowhere near as smart as the smartest people we know. I consider myself quite intelligent, but I doubt that I could be the astrophysicist "who could get any job at any university or NASA position because he's just so damn good." I am not afraid of controversial topics. Even though I am an introvert and think FAR more than I speak, I do feel strongly about certain topics and have always been very interested in these sorts of topics. If you look at a social media page of mine, you will find that I share things about science, religion, politics, etc. So how do I do what these guys did? How do I become involved in a number of different popular topics?
