Ah related to a lot of this! I, unsurprisingly, also thought I’d go into medicine when I was young but in high school realized I didn’t care for science the way I enjoyed other subjects. In college I think I leaned the most into my interests but I wish I did it more. When I started working, I sold my soul for good pay and health insurance. Great essay and the picture of you as a kid was sooo cute!
