    If any high school kid ever wants my opinion, it is to do what you like, study what interests you, pursue your dreams, and don't worry about the job market.

    If there really is a thing like reincarnation, I already have my next six professional careers mapped out: historian, oceanographer, philosopher, astronomer, archeologist, and art historian.
    I have been a reincarnationist for over 50 years and I have also picked what I want to do next. Either an astronaut (I would love to go into space or another planet in this life too), or a forensic archaeologist...reconstructing the faces based on the skeleton of people from antiquity just fascinates me. What cool jobs they would be. This is pretty much a rest life for me this time around. I haven't really done anything, or gone anywhere or even really lived life yet (I am 65). The average teenager has lived more life than I have. But, next round...boy, do I plan to LIVE LIFE!

    As an atheist I was interested in creation stories from various cultures and tribes. The gods they created and believed in were similar across the board no matter how primitive they may have been. It merely enforced the presumption that we, as humans, need something to cling to and give credit/blame in order to find purpose/reasons for everything.

    It was fascinating.
