The Decision Epilogue

Almost 2 months until school year is over, my mind was a mess, thinking about what direction would my life take depending on the decision i make; Would i become a electronical geek fixing TV's and DVD's? (being sarcastic, i know you electronics guys do more ^^), or should i become a Pharmacist, with my own drugstore :/.

It also came to my mind the physics or chemistry degrees, but, i didnt want to become a teacher, i hate teaching (back then); and most of physics and chemistry graduates become school teachers.

Then it came another choice, Computer engineering, it was a good option, im good with computers, the downpart? most of my friends were going to study that, and i didnt want to become part of the mass.

But in all this brainstorming, something was clear, i was going to attend to the Technology and Sciencie Faculty. This is where all the engineering degrees were at in the university of my city.
So a bunch of my friends and I started to get ready to take the admission exam (Chemistry, physics, math and some of biology), meanwhile in my mind i was sure i was goin to study either Electronical engineering or Physics degree, part of me wanted chemistry though.
The Schoolyear was over, it was almost 2 months for the admission exam, and still no decision.
Test results came and i qualified, i was ready to sign in and start the university.
In the search of the perfect career for me, i started checking daily the subjects i would be taking in EACH of my options, one of those days i found something i didnt see before, CHEMICAL ENGINEERING What?!, i thought there was only Chemistry degree!!, what?", i kinda liked it but my head was in physics.
D-Day: It was the day i was supposed to turn in my papers to legalize my admission, they gave us a form to fill.
Started to fill it in, and at the bottom i saw:

Mark the career you will be signing in:
Heart was beating, my hand was moving towards electronical engineering, BUT i stopped thinking so much, cleared my head, began to breathe and my heart was somewhere else, somehow that moment i knew deep inside me i wanted to go for the CHEMIST side of my being. So i marked CHEMICAL ENGINEERING on the form.

So here you have, how i decided to study Chemical Engineering, everytime i look back and think if i would've chosen another career, i think about how passionate i feel about chemistry and i wouldnt change my decision if i had the oportunity

Sometimes you just have to stop using your brain and let your guts make you do what you really want...

I say be a chemical engineer and then get another degree in Pharma. Then you will be a god of matter and manipulating substances. :P

Chemical engineer with an interest in chemistry? I feel like the opposite (Chemist with an interest in chemical engineering). Thanks for finishing the decision story!
