I'm stuck between two careers what do i do?

  1. Apr 1, 2010 #1
    Like i said above in the title, i can't choose from two careers, which are almost opposite from each other, quantum physics, and zoology. In my early years i enjoyed zoology and animals, but as i got older i shifted into quantum physics, i enjoy both very much, i'm not concerned about money. I love nature and animals and want to see the world and love the earth and what it has for us i don't want to miss any of it. But i love to learn physics its so interesting to me, and i know that it is becoming an increasingly important topic, and i could possibly discover great things. I can't choose! What do I do?

    Quantum physics isn't a career, at what stage of your education are you at right now?

    It sounds like you're still in grade school. Don't worry about careers yet. Just learn as much as you can about whatever interests you.

    So should i learn about both subjects isnt that kinda overload of information, and what about when i get to college, i cant have two majors, well you can, but what will that do i can;t have two careers. \

    It's too early for you to be worried about careers.

    There are tens of thousands of people on this site. You just asked 10 questions in 10 minutes, and I happen to be on the site at the moment.

    As Chroot said, you sound way way too young to be worrying about this. Most people don't have realistic ideas about their career paths until their first couple years of college. Also knowing what career you want to be in at this point is meaningless since you're not going to be having to choose between different classes anytime soon im sure.
