Hi, can I please know my career, wealth and love fortune in 2021? Thank you 😊 🙏💞💓

I’m hesitating on my career prospects. I wanted to apply for medical school for m.d and ph.d degree in the future but I’m worried about family / love life. The route for a doctor will take long and I’m worried I may not be able to divide my time between family and work.

I’m debating whether to apply for MRI technologist and radiologist programs instead.
