I love science, I enjoyed doing my BSc and I’m really passionate about the area I work in but I don’t like being in the lab. It’s a very hard environment to be a part of and it turns out that my brain, which is great at memorising facts and writing essays and all the kinds of things that get you through school and university, is not built for practical applications.
