    Surgical doctor, maybe a psychologist.

    Both are great. But there's always that fear that while I'm studying either of those, I may end up shifting into a simpler course. I'm the type to give up easily, and I never stand a chance with difficult subjects. I'm hoping that would change.

    I really want to become a forensic pathologist

    when I am older. It intrigues me a ton! Since I still don't know if I will actually be able to handle cutting open a dead body (thankfully I haven't seen a dead person yet in real life) my backup plan is to work in the labs that study the dead body's cells and such.
