I know it's mostly incidental. I'm just as capable as they are, and I'm happy for their respective yields. I just want a slice of the pie. I also really want more experience that I can take a microscope to variables are relatively blind to now, so I can make employ more focused planning and preparation for the future. I like mystery, but I don't want to stub my toe in the dark. Plus the need for money is pretty constant and I don't want to be a burden on my family.
Started when I was 3 or 4. I wanted to be an astronaut. Graduated from there. Explored astrophysics, quantum physics, biochemistry, genetic engineering, aerospace engineering, etc. Everything I ever wanted to do was heavily scientifically inclined. I'm interested in all those things. I'm actually interested in all things period given a certain orientation. I've been indulging myself in a lot of self study and that is opening my eyes to different avenues of learning that I hadn't actively experienced before. I actually really want to double major, but I'm already behind and I don't know if it's feasible at this stage. It's a matter of risk vs reward though to be fair, I haven't had a single semester where a personal or financial issue hasn't pulled my attention from school, so I don't even know what my work capacity even is as far as school is concerned.
