Thread: Did anyone else want to be a marine biologist?

    Did anyone else want to be a marine biologist?

    I didn't know what career path I'd end up in after school. I was really interested in marine biology but didn't have the body confidence to learn to swim properly (which I figured I needed).

    I ended up in an office job. It's a bit of a drag being stuck indoors all the time on a computer so sometimes I dream about what it might have been like to pursue marine biology instead.

    Probably not as fun and secure as I am imagining but boy I bet it's interesting!

    Did anyone else want to study this? Did anyone actually go on to become a marine biologist?

    Well you really should talk to people in that field of study i'm not sure swimming really is required for every possible kind of marine biology research and if it's a passion for you don't let the possibility of an obstacle that maybe don't even exist ruin your dream right? I don't know since i'm in totally different kind of work (sex worker) and have no hard science background as my studies were more litterature and human sciences (history and geography mostly) but if your young enough to change field and find the one you're in boring well do it if that's what you truly desire. My job is quite fun but secure well not at all but i've choose it over boring and too long study all the way XD. Marine biology seems relatively fun and secure and most certainly interesting indeed. I'm well over the age of doing studies, don't want to change my job that i quite like and have no enough biology background to do marine biology but i quite like learn about it in science news documentaries, websites or magazines. Especially on squales. So i've would quite like to know people who are knowledeable in the marine biology field sure they would have a lot of things to say that i would like to learn.

    Thanks for the response! I'm glad that you've found a job you enjoy! T'aint always easy!

    I think I'm too broke to afford a career change into that at this point in my life. I don't think anyone is too old to study but it does get more complicated the older you get.

    But hey you don't need to formally study something to enjoy learning about it!
