Can you guys give some advice about my future? I’m not sure if I’m in the right path to get what I want
I’m a Spanish undergraduate in environmental sciences and chemistry (it’s a double degree). First of all I’m really not sure about doing chemistry, I like it a lot, but to be honest I don’t feel I’m really learning a lot in my university, except for the practice sessions, I don’t just go to classes for 2 months and then I just study at home, and I have passed every single course. I feel going to class is a waste of time, except with one amazing proffesor I had (who changed my view on transgenic products, from hate to love).
If studying chemistry after environmental sciences is good, I’m all for it, but if it’s just going to be to get another title and not really to develop good skills, I don’t want it. So I’d love your advise on that, I could have done the double degree with Marine sciences instead of chemistry, but to me marine sciences is so related to environmental sciences that I didn’t see the point.
-And now the most important thing, how I want my future job to be like, I rather not make much money but have free time for myself, I definitely don’t want a 9 to 5 job, I don’t want to work 8 hours at all. I think 4 to 6 hours is how me and most people are most productive, the rest would just be wasting time, pretending to work.
I do love environmental sciences, I would love to work on transgenics, and change people views on it, I would want to fight against the idea that a lot of people have that nature is good and humans are bad, climate change obviously, there is a ton of stuff that is exciting about environmental sciences. And the responsability I feel is strong.
But still, I do want to have a good job, I want to be happy and instead of working for hours, I want to work to be productive, and I think I am that.
As you can see, I’ve become fluent in English, by myself, I haven’t paid a single dime on english lessons, I don’t see myself working in Spain, I like the climate here, but not society, definitely not education, Norway or Australia seem way better for me.
I’m going on an Erasmus trip in August to Norway, I’m already learning norwegian, I’m dying to receive a better education there, I’m not sure how that’s going to be like though.
So what do you think about all of this? Should I already quit trying to pursue a science career working 5-6 hours per day and do other thing that’s going to allow me to live the lifestyle I want to live?
Do I have the possibility to actually work in other countries or is that really hard? (it seems a lot of people are xenophobic against spanish people)
And about transgenics, could an environmental scientist work on that? Because my professor was a microbiologist, perhaps I should do a master on that instead of chemistry
I’m all ears!
