Yes, I know "This is the Physics Forum KimG" BUT, this is science related so I figure it counts. I'm sitting here right now at 10:27 p.m. STILL trying to figure out my Physics homework (Which by the way if half of the reason I joined this Forum in the first place) and thinking to myself....hm...I want to become a Marine Biologist, meanwhile I suck at every other type of Science except (somewhat) Biology. So should I really go through with it? Through my entire academic career I have thought I could never possibly in any universe--except maybe the one parallel to this one, in which case I would have to be the opposite of myself and not exactly myself--become any kind of scientist. I've always considered myself to be "intelligent", in the way that babies are intelligent because they can eventually pick up the language into which they were born and understand the things that are being said to them, but I've never considered myself to be "smart" in the way that one just knows things because to them it's second nature, or just plain old logic; people like Einstein, or Newton, you know? Biology is somewhat second nature to me, but not quite, I still have to spend 3 hours with a subject that another student might only need 1 hour with. Whilst Physics & Chemistry are more gibberish than anything. However at this point in myself, by some mishap of events, I want to be a Marine Biologist. Now, I'm a very persistent person, so I will keep at it, until I eventually get where I want to be, but I'm also very impatient and easily frustrated. I know, my life is a constant tug-a-war with the side of me that wants to have someone just babble the information back to me, and the side of me that wants to study until my brain can work out problems from memory in my sleep. So to all of you, who are probably in a much better academic position than I am at this point, I ask, is it worth it? Should I become a Marine Biologist? P.S. I'm a senior in High School.
