The Things I do During Biology Tests Amaze Me.

So today during my biology test, in which I was epically failing so it’s no surprise that my mind began to stray.  For example, I began to think about what exactly it is that I want to do with the rest of my life.  Not exactly biology test sort of topic, but when it comes to my life, it does include biology, so I guess it was somewhat time appropriate.

I’ve known for awhile that I really want to work with birds, but as this biology class I am in has passed I’ve started to find out what about ecological research I am interested in and what I am not interested in.  Whereas I always pictured myself being really interested in interactions between birds and other species, while we were learning about that in class, I really wasn’t interested. 

Maybe this is my NaNoWriMo talking since it has a lot to do with genetics and evolution and such, but I have found myself really interested in genetics and evolution.  I truly enjoyed that topic, and I did really well in the part that we learned about it.   So its gotten me thinking lately that I might actually be interested in studying birds and their evolutionary changes and their genetic code if I could find a grad school doing research like that or if the research was even available to do it.
 It surprises me daily how much I can learn about myself in one day.  How one biology class can affect my life forever.  I get to realize daily that I have so many options for life and what I am going to do outside school.   

So maybe I bombed my biology test today, I still did decent, and at the same time I discovered something about myself.  In the end, I guess I had a very productive morning without even realizing it.

But what am I doing here posting a blog. It’s November! I have a novel that needs writing and I should be doing that.
