I have seen my friends taking up a course in their grads because of their parents. some of them have an intention that only by studying a particular subject or course, you get a job and you can earn. while some of them still stick on to their interests and passions. what do you think is important? what is that, that makes us choose a course/ job? is it the sheer interest/ passion and dedication? or is it the money that lures people?

i guess its better to go by the interest and passion which would fetch alot in career. These days there are lots of courses to go by any one of it could be learnt to earn money but passion cannot be bought.

I'm one of the people who chose a particular course in college to please my parents. They wanted me to take medicine so I took a course related to the field. It took me 5 miserable years in college to finish a course I don't have my heart into. Now, I'm in a career path my college degree has put me in. The job pays well but I still constantly regret the fact that I didn't choose to follow my interests. I'd kill to have a job that fits my interests where I can pour my soul out onto. I wouldn't care so much for the money or the pay just as long as I get to do the things I love doing.

Well, thanks for your response. I know a few frnds who have told me the same thing. I know how it'll be. but don't worry, medicine (and all related to it) is such a nice field. you'll go places.
