Ah, skipping school again. On the bright side, I took my meds today. Oh, and I’m awake before 4 pm!
I want to help people. I want to ultimately leave the world a better place than when I left it. Am I an altruist? No. I bet this comes from the same part of me that believes I’m evil, always atoning for some nameless sin. Since my motives are less than pure, I don’t think I am doing true good works. Nonetheless, I want to make a positive impact.
I despise law school. Yesterday I said I’d wait until my meds had a chance to kick-in again, but seriously this sucks!
Jobs that have a positive impact:
- Justice (
Prosecutor, Child advocate, Forensic psychologist)
- Healer (
Doctor, EMT, Nurse, ultrasound technician, MHT, Therapist)
- Protector (Armed Forces, FBI, CIA, Police Officer, ICE, DoD)
- Knowledge (Researcher – Psychological,
- The Next Generation (
The first thing I remember wanting to do is to work for the CIA as a spy. My parents quickly discouraged that because of the danger. All of the jobs listed above are job I’ve considered. In fact, when searching for undergrad universities I looked at teaching and nursing programs. I entered undergrad as a nursing student, but shadowing students scared me away (they were doing a microbiology lab at 10:30 on a Sunday night) and I switched to psychology before Freshman year even started. Realistically, I don’t think any of the careers I listed as protectors would accept me. Theoretically, I could work on nutrition and fitness to pass their various fitness exams, but they all require in-depth psychiatric evaluations and my dad, who dealt with government agencies in the past, says they don’t take people with depression.
