Mr. Braddock: Would you mind telling me then what those four years of college were for? What was the point of all that hard work?
Benjamin: You got me.
Mr. Roberts: Would you mind telling me then what those four years of college were for? What was the point of all that hard work?
Tyler: Well I want a job in Biology... where?...doing what?...You got me.
I guess I do have a general idea of what i want but from my perspective there are thousands of potential places to go from here and I have almost no real experience, therefore i feel unable to even make an educated guess about where i want to go.
"What can you do with a biology degree?"
As I probe the depths of my inner conscience trying to piece together where i want my life to lead many questions keep bubbling to the surface.
Where do I begin?
What is my ideal job?
Where do I want to go?
What area of biology is most important to me?
Does it even matter what direction I take?
Those are a few of the more prominent ones but most of the doubts I have I can not articulate that well. They are better described generally as feelings and senses that caste a shadow on every idea i have. I am constantly playing my own devils advocate, but is it to my benefit or my detriment? Im sure that I am far to analytical about all of this decision making and that I simply need to go with my gut. However that is far easier said than done. I have spent my entire school career learning to be analytical and only using my gut as the last resort, most often on a multiple choice test in chemistry class. Now when I need to call on my gut for direction I find that we are not on speaking terms anymore. As a word of advice, use and listen to your gut... it may be smarter than your brain.
I guess the best thing I can do is to take aim, shoot, and hope that i hit the target. However, with life being what it is I fully expect to ricochet more than once and head out on a course I never considered in the beginning. This is both an exciting and daunting time for me, emphasis on the latter.
