Well, im preparing a little "experiment" for you, its something small, but it was big when i did it, i "discovered" this when i was 10 years old, messing around with fire ^^ when my parents werent at home. im gonna try to post it today but if not im sure it will be done tomorrow.

Its a like a fire bomb (dont be confused with Rihanna's song), hope you guys like it, one of the many signs that influenced in my decision, my passion for constructing and destroying things :)

PS: it wont be as big as in the picture ^^, just in case so you dont get high expectations ;)

The Decision Part 3

Well, after that day i realized that the test wasnt mandatory, just a guideline on my decision, but it made a huge impact on my way of thinking, i started to think more and more about the pros and cons about going after a medicine career, it was almost 6 months until the schoolyear ends and still i havent decided what to do, i was scared to even show a little bit of confusion in front of my parents, especially towards my dad who was excited to see his first son follow his steps (like any dad would do).

But i needed to grow up, and it was time to take the problem in a more serious approach so i started making a real list of career possibilities, not just think about them, like real researching about them, what would i be doing in the next 5 years on each one of them (I strongly suggest ANY of you guys that maybe are or will go through the same, pick seriously, ask for advice, dont stay in doubt, especially ask people who is on that proffesion).
By the time i had my top 5 careers that i would like to study, guess which wasnt on it...yeah...Medicine was totally out of it.. THE REASON?..not the test..i realized it wasnt for me, i like medicine, but just as a hobby, something temporary, something that only was excited about for just a few times, sometimes on biology or sometimes at home with my dad's books, slowly i realized i hate pure theorical subjects (and in my country, not sure if its different in other countries, when u study medicine, u wont have any practice or sick people contact until your 3rd year in college, i wont be 3 years just reading books. NOP i wont

Here is the list:
  • Biochemical and Fharmacy degree
  • Electronical Engineering
  • Chemistry Degree
  • Physics Degree
  • Electromechanical Engineering
But my decision was far to be over, many more events will come for me picking something that WASNT on the list......yep...i didnt study any of the careers mentioned above

The Decision Part 2

Well i just realized im giving looong posts just full of words, i saw my own and thought to myself "even I wouldnt read it", so ill try to put in some images when i have the chance (not sure how to put pics though, might need some guidance on that), but until that will try to be as clear and quick as is can.

Lets continue, the day of the result came, the psychologists handed us some sheets with our results, in that moment i started to remember some of the weird questions there were on one of the tests: "you see a man laying on the street a) run to him and see what happened...b) cross across the street and ignore him....c)call for help and leave him there till the help arrives".
Well to tell you the truth wasnt the exact words but it was something like that...i remember choosing option c...altough in my mind was thinking on option A and B but to appear as a nice guy i choose C.
Realized that day that those tests werent as useless and inaccurate as i thought, they pretty much explain all my personality, likes and hobbies in less that 5 lines of text.

 The shocking part of the result was..."CAREER ADVICES: Your person SHOULDNT study any health and health caring careers related"; on other part of the results i remember something like "you dont have the values necesary to be considered a helpful person for those around you" ¬ ¬
And continued the advices with "You should really consider careers science related or math related"

That day my friends wouldnt stop laughing and making fun of dream as a doctor was shattered by a dumb test......

The Decision Part 1

Or to be more accurate, the unfolding of small events that lead to one of the most decisive moments in my life.

Senior Year, just another "kid" trying to fit in, thinking on what would do with his life after highschool is over. And the family doesnt help at all "did u decide what to study yet?" "here comes the new family doctor", "is it true? your gonna be a doctor like your father?", "this is the biggest decision in your life", I WANTED SOME FREAKING BREAK to be honest, but its not like i was stressed with the school or anything, i didnt have much to do to be honest, besides playing videogames (pretty much all that i did that year), attending school and trying to learn some new languages (yeah, english is not my first language) for a new stage in my life as everyone kept telling me those days, its not like they were bad advices, many helped me a lot, but for a 17 year old kid i just wanted to relax and live my life alone.
By the time i realized i was already at my mid senior year my destiny was pretty much decided, i was going to be a doctor just like my dad, and NO, noone forced me to decide that, i enjoyed all medicine related topics, i love to see my dad's books and read some of them, i loved to know how our freaking body works and watch every health and medicine documentary you can imagine, yeah in my mind it was something i wanted to do since i was a 10yo kid...or was it??
In my highschool came the time where the teachers started to talk like my family, giving us advices on what path to take in college, every single one of my friends already knew i was going to study medicine and i was making plans with some of them that would study the same, most of the kids in my class though was going to study one of the many engineering branches we had in the university.
This was a pretty weird decision for most of my friends, me studying medicine, the reason is i did excelent on math, physics, chemistry subjects (not wanting to brag, it is true..i ruled those subjects) and had regular grades on biology and other "theorical" subjects, mainly because i hate reading long texts, and just memorize stuff without being able to put them to practice; but despite all of this i still wanted to study medicine.
One day, some pychologists came to my highschool from the university, they offered guidance to seniors on the decision on what to study, making us take some tests (weird ones), guess what were the results....for me.

Life in General (from the point of view of a chemist)

Well guys, get ready to see some inside of my 5 years studying chemistry in college, will post some crazy stuff i did in all my life as a chemist, and the journey to become what i am now.

Hope my mind remembers everything i did....after sniffing all those chemical products on the laboratory, not joking, I had many "all the men here GET OUT...this chemical will leave you sterile" warnings and more.

I need to do some house work now...Stay tuned and will post my highschool last months until the day i decided to go after this career.

Just another it?

Spending the day watching random movies staying in bed, well what else can a guy do on the sundays, probably should be doing my laundry, maybe later.
Today realized my AV needs update, that will be fun, with my 64kbps 3rd world connection speed, yeah you guys now got it, this post will be full of complains, if you dont wanna listen more just close this please dont ^^ i was just kiding, think i need some attention :)
