Choosing between All Iowa Attack Basketball and High School Softball
Giving Thought To The Problem
I have finally started college and I need to decide whether I want to be an OBGYN Doctor or a Journalist, so I can choose a major.
If I was an OBGYN Doctor I would be a physician who delivered babies and helps treat diseases in the female reproductive system.
Review Your Choices
If I was a journalist I would write for a newspaper or magazine.
JOURNALIST PROS: I love to write and I would get to spend more time at home, less time at college, and less money . CONS: Lower salary and have to work in an office/desk space.
OBGYN PROS: Better money and I get to help people. CONS: I would have to spend extra money and time on medical school, and I wouldn't be at home as much because I'd be on call.
Evaluating The Consequences
I chose to be a Journalist because it is the best option for me. I do not like school very much so spending extra years of my life in medical scool is not ideal for me. I also love to write, so it will be good for me to do that as a lifelong job. Lastly, I eventually want a family and my schedule will allow me to spend time with them more as a Journalist then it would've as an OBGYN Doctor.
Assessing & Making The Best Choice

I am very happy I decided to work as a Journalist! I enjoy it and now that I am married and have a son it works extremely well with my schedule.
