Until I was 20 I wanted to be a doctor—a psychiatrist—and to that end I studied the nuts out of biology, psychology, anatomy, and math (I was even in the upper realm of okay at math! Totes a B student. Sometimes even, like, an A- on occasion). However I always sucked at chemistry, I was terrible at statistics, and I can’t remember if I even took physics because by my 3rd year of university, the lab levels had shown me to be utterly inept at cutting stuff open and/or measuring powder.
I know I’m an art person these days, but every so often I google “developmental psychology PhD programs” and sigh.
I also find myself googlebaited by programs in art history or restoration—something where I could work in a museum touching all the old things. If I can’t be rich, I might as well be elbow deep in historical treasures.
I want to begin a career track. How do we know what we want to be when we grow up, you guys?
