I have been going through a crisis about what I want to do with my life...

My original plan was to go to graduate school for immunology. What I'm going to do with my PhD  I'm not really sure. I would love to do research, but you have to have money to do research... which means I would work for a company and do their research, not my own.

Right now, all the job interviews I've been on has been working instruments in a chemical lab. Which basically equates to me mixing up some samples. Putting them in the instrument, sitting for about an hour waiting for them to run, maybe mixing up the next batch, getting the print out from the computer and then sending it off. I don't know what I was thinking. I mean, it might be kind of interesting, but I think I would be bored out of my mind.

I've recently been thinking about being a teacher. Getting my license and just going to teach biology or chemistry. I really loved tutoring kids in high school and college. This might be something that I like and if I want to go back and get my PhD at a later time, that is always possible.

I just get so upset because besides this new idea of teaching, I have no clue what I want to do with my life. I'm completely clueless. I hope I can figure something out soon.

If you are stopping in for the Wednesday Walkabout please leave me a comment! I would love to hear from you!



  1. You will figure it out, I know you will. I think no matter what you do you will be awesome at! :)

  2. Teaching is a very difficult job, but a great teacher would have made all the difference for me when it came to science!

  3. It's hard being an adult right?!?!? I hope you figure out what your passion is. :)

  4. It is so hard to figure out to do with life. You'll do it though. Hang in there.
