Film & TV Director / Hematologist?
Now, when I started to even hint that this is the direction I want to go to towards my parents, they immediately shot it down. They made it very clear to me that actors are deadbeats and make no money in their eyes. I don't listen to any of my parents opinions, but I know just how hard it's going to be to break into this industry will little to no cash and very little training (other than a few short films I've made for school). So, I've created the stupidest plan on earth. I'm thinking of reviving my old dream of being a doctor and I'll start training to be a hematologist (they made ridiculous money btw). Once I finish school and start making some money, I can start putting my acting/directing plan into effect and start living the dream. If it doesn't work, I still have income as a doctor. Even though a hematologist is an okay job in my opinion, I definitely don't wanna do that forever.
Please, please tell my if this could possibly work at all. I know how hard it is to be a doctor and how much it is, but still please help me. I'm at a dead zone and I need to start telling my parents my career goals and looking at colleges. Please help my figure out if this is worth a shot, because I don't wanna give up on my dream.
Additional: I'm not very good at math and science
I chose hematology because I'm interested in how blood poisoning and cancer affect the body
