If I knew that I could make a comfortable living, I would probably be a teacher/professor. This would require me to be an expert on the material, so I would have to study it thoroughly for many years to get a degree and become certified to teach. Since my passion is for biology/psychology, that would be what I taught, not only so that I could spend the rest of my life with it, but so that I could share it with future generations. These are fields that are rapidly expanding and becoming increasingly important in our daily lives, and I would be able to help expose fresh, new minds to them. Though it is difficult to stay abreast of all of the advancements made in those fields every year, I would gladly accept the challenge, for hopefully at least I would have made the general population more conscious of issues related to biology and/or psychology, and perhaps even piqued my students’ interest enough that some of them, too, made careers in one or both fields. Helping to provide more doctors, nurses, researchers, psychiatrists, or other important members of society would greatly benefit us, especially as we are currently moving towards a dire shortage of medical professionals in our country-helping to shrink that deficit in any way would be extremely satisfying, and I believe the key to doing so lies in education.
