What I Want to Do Once I Leave School
So, what do I want to do once I leave school? There are a lot of things but I will only mention some. Some of the people that inspire me are authors, scientists, and some are with me every day.
First of all, I want to study biochemistry in the university. I really like biology and I also like to explore chemistry. The person that inspires me is Ben Goldacre, a British physician, academic and science writer. He writes about how science really matters. He also mentions experiments about matter and the human body in one of his books called ‘Bad Science’. I read it every night and find out that we cannot just depend on teachers or the internet about facts, but we have to find it out ourselves.
Another field is pharmacy. I like to be a pharmacist because whenever I go to the hospital, I always see the pharmacists packing medicines and I notice that they are a little cheerful. But once again, that is not the only thing I want to be.
I also want to be a doctor. Whenever I talk about biology to senior grades or to my parents, they mostly talk about cutting frogs and doing stuff with living things. Most people think that it is disgusting but I think that it is cool and exciting.
Another thing I want to be is a comic author. My inspiration is Raina Telgemeier, an American cartoonist. In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that my interest is drawing comics. Right now, I am drawing a comic story called ‘Frank the Cat’. There are many comic books that not only give you happiness, but give knowledge as well. But this work is not something I want to do as a fixed job, I want to do it as a part time job. The reason behind this is because I won’t get so much profit. Also, it will be quite boring.
The last thing I want to be is a news reporter or writer. Many teachers have said that my background in writing is really good. And also I like reporting things to my mother. Not reporting as in telling my mother that this kid made me cry or so, but reporting on what I learn at school and what I discover when I do some fun fact researching. It is like doing two things together. Researching and telling.
Finally, I want to make a lifelong project such as starting a business or inventing something. I always feel excited when our teacher says that we are going to start a project. It makes me feel that I am about to start my own work. This is actually related to the last challenge about attribution and licenses. It makes me feel that I just made a masterpiece.
