A long time ago, in this very galaxy I was a Biology major.  My undergrad focus was Ornithology and Ecology, but, the course load was balanced (molecular, biochemistry, calculus, physics, and the longest 4 letter word - organic chemistry). When i took genetics, something struck home, I was hooked.  Grad school was focused on molecular biology and neuroscience.  Several years in pharmaceutical r&d, now, after 10 years as a field application scientist in biotech, I've moved to scientific sales.  

As you can see, I'm nowhere near the ornithologist I thought I would be, but, I'm still an avid birder.  Keep your options open, try things, don't ever think you can't change your path.  What you are learning now about being a scientist, the scientific method works for all problems, not just for the field or lab problems.  Keep learning how to think and ask questions.  Those skills will empower you in wherever you end up.

If you have questions, feel free to send me a PM.  I'm happy to help any way I can.

I originally studied Exercise Physiology with intentions to go to grad school. I got an internship at a lab and subsequently a job. Made good money but moved on after our funding ended. I got a job as a personal trainer with intentions of it just being a part time gig. I was offered sales position soon and a few years later was managing three clubs for someone else.

I saved up, took the jump, and opened my own Gym two and a half years ago. I opened the second a few months ago! You never know where life will take you!

Just never be afraid to take a risk while you still can.

I am about half way through my Aeronautical Science degree. I am double majoring in professional pilot and aircraft maintenance. I have always loved aviation with a passion. I just never thought I could because of my dyslexia. But in the end I have been able to adapt and overcome those issues and look forward to being a pilot. I originally thought about a Nurse Practitioner degree. Once I found out my school offered an aeronautical science degree I decided to major in that instead. Good luck with your studies!

Currently working on my teachers education, majoring in history. Planning to have a job as a teacher in what I think is the norwegian equivalent of senior high. I also have a BA in musicology, it might come in handy.
