Note to self:

My rough 10 year plan for success:
1. Year One: graduate from college then start internship at biochemical research and development laboratory.
2. Year Two: learn research and development methods, and begin independent research of original theses.
3. Year Three: continue research; begin experimentation using the scientific method.
4. Year Four: marry a wonderful lady and begin a family. Hopefully, we’ll all be gingers, but who knows what the future will hold.
5. Year Five: found GeoChem and start production of biochemically engineered materials previously researched such as orb-weaver spider silk fabric, which is as light as silk-worm silk yet more durable than canvas.
6. Year Six: create a team of young and creative biochemical engineers, and expand research and development division of GeoChem to produce a variety of materials and designs originating from biological and chemical engineering.
7. Year Seven: Look for alternative sources of energy such as photosynthetic properties from genetically improved algae to power laboratory, and study how other organisms obtain energy like the giant tube worms that thrive on deep sea hydrothermal vents.
8. Year Eight: introduce new biotechnologies that promote cheap and highly efficient green energy alternatives to lessen the consumption of fossil fuels.
9. Year Nine: become top promoter of ecology preservation for organic modifications and renewable biochemical resources.
10. Year Ten: Continue working hard to try to improve the world in any way you can. Oh, and don’t forget to have fun. That bit is really important.

Good luck buddy!
