    1. Mum and dad are teachers. Poor them.

    3. I'd like to be an engineer (though I don't know what kind) or do something involving physics research.

    Heheh.

    Well not so much my mum because she's a lazy supply teacher.

    But dad is always complaining and getting stressed out because he teaches physics at a school where nobody seems to appreciate it (in a really nasty area). But he's been there for so long now that I don't think he wants to leave.

    I persume this is a secondary school, because by the time people do phsycis AS they'll appreciate a good teacher in it. I know hes been there a while but he should consider going to teach at a sixth form college.

    nurses and doctors can do it....but they don't always have time to do it, people need their blood taking all the time . phlebotomists are similar to healthcare assistants.
