I thought I would post one of these memoir things. I read sooo much more than I post here, and these life updates from strangers always hit that community aesthetic for me. So here's mine.
I've worked since I was 14. Fry cook, Computer repair, cashier, computer repair, bakery slave, cashier... Always something mundane that never made me excited. Four years out of high school and today is my last day of mundane work. I'm going to school to study chemistry.
I've been taking one or two classes a semester in those four years. Chemistry really hits the spot for my curiosity. I'm methodical enough not to be bored by experiments. I'm curious enough to handle the mind bending nature of learning quantum theory. Thermo clicks in y head and makes sense.
I'm so excited to know where I will be for the next 4-6 years and what I want from that time and that I will enjoy it. Here's to hoping my next job title will be chemist.
