I'm an applied sciences person for the sun.
Biology was my strongest subject at school, gave it up at a-level so I could work at the local alldays on Fridays, this was probably a mistake
Never really engaged with Science, if I persisted it would've ended up with explosions and failure. If what I do like doesn't pay the bills that's the worlds problem not mine. It does mean a life of admin monkeying to keep the lights on though so it is my problem a bit :(
As a humanities person who doesn't really like anything, it's either:
(for humanities) pursue something I have a bit of an aptitude for that makes me depressed and doesn't pay well, or:
(for science) pursue something I don't have an aptitude for that makes me depressed and pays well.
Obviously these are generalisations, but it would be good to know if I'm not the only one who sort of feels that way, or if I'm talking shit.
do you think you could succeed in a field you don't have an aptitude for, some people with an aptitude for science probably struggle to get a job in the field
It's a big, scary world, but I've gone for the BA route, a safer option I think.
there's loads of stuff i intend to learn about technology for work but i very much doubt i'll ever be a true science person
but I hated maths (and wasn't really particularly good at it) so it would've been difficult to pursue them past a level
did quite a lot of science (particularly biology) related stuff at university (which is what I 'specialised' in I guess), though I didn't really have to know much about the actual science. managed to do science and humanities at the same time I guess.
... um, no anyway ...
instead of being a bum, which is what I am lets face it
Skills learnt in reading and writing (to an exceptional level) have set me up nicely over the years. Sure, no obvious career path but once I got on the ladder I rocketed.
I pick up knowledge in technology (my field) by being genuinely interested in it.
