    Oh okay, that's better then.

    Don't be pessimistic

    Also, I'm planning on becoming a scientist (probably, a toxicologist) so... and I want to discover stuff. I'm sure you will!

    That sounds interesting.

    I'm also not a scientist

    In the third week of my AS year my biology teacher said she noticed I was struggling and would do better if I switched to BTEC Level 3 Applied Biology. I assured her I was fine but ended up getting an E It seemed like terrible advice at the time but I wish I had listened.

    'Your best is good enough' - my mum among others. I tried my best with AS Biology and got an E. Is that good enough? No. Many other examples but it seems I'm still hung up about biology today

    I had such a bad time being myself. High school was hell. If only I had pretended to be cool.

    People tell me this a lot, as well. I find it very frustrating because I want everything all the time right now!

    There is some merit to it, though. Sometimes, you really do just have to be patient. I learnt that the hard way...

    Thanks

    I've got offers from unis so it hasn't held me back that much to be honest.

    I was going to say something like **** happens, doesn't matter in the long run.

    But I was concerned that would be patronising and trite.

    Once when asking for advice on how to improve my coursework, my teacher looked at me blankly and went 'You'll know what to do, just...do it.'
    I got something similar: my English teachers told me to 'write like me' with no explanation. Needless to say, I now have a crushed dream of an A in English as I apparently don't know who I am

    I don't like that advice because it basically says you should wait for things to happen rather than just going out and doing them, and I don't think it's an optimal way to do things, as you'll waste your life just waiting for things to happen.

    Haha, it's fine It does and it doesn't. At the time it doesn't feel like it but now I think I'm over it. There's always a positive, if I hadn't of done biology I never would have gone to Iceland Then my negative side says I paid £800 for an E

    What's wrong with this advice? :confused:

    I think it's a good advice to follow.

    I really, really recommend you watch this.

    I see that side. But sometimes if you're not patient you miss out on opportunities.

    lol

    To be a physicists you have to involved in research in an area of physics. I vaguely got near this in my final year when I was a lab monkey for my supervisor in the area of supercritical physics. I might get my name mentioned in any papers he publishes but that's it.

    That's my nearest claim to fame

    "Lab monkey"<- haha
    But that will be great though! First step to world domination!! (Shh! You can't steal that, that's my future role!)

    Whatever...
    Butterfly is a physicist and he will discover something. :yep:
