Wow, thanks for the speedy responses everyone!
Nursing is nixed because it uses conventional medicine. Regardless of my intent, I would still be using these drugs and harmful chemicals that are
doing more harm than good. If there is a way around that though, I'd be very pleased.
Up until recently, I wanted to be a veterinarian. Apparently it's even harder to get into than human medical school. I'm smart, but not that
smart! (also read as: I'm a tad lazy). I decided I'd rather help people. I love my pets and would go to great lengths for them, but human lives are
generally more valuable than a pet's.
hotpinkurinalmint, that's pretty much what I figured, with the slaughterhouse floors and all. And you're absolutely right; every profession has
it's dark side. I'm just looking for the least darkest!
Astronomy kind of scares me. The big, vast blackness of the universe I mean. I can't really look at pictures of planets and stars, stuff like that.
And I'm really, really bad at physics.
Thank you to each and every one of you that replied. Your responses have helped more than you might realize.
(^that's not a conclusion to the thread, by the way...keep the suggestions comin', folks!)
