Oddly like teaching it way more than I expected to.
I was but then I dont like the practical side of my degree (chemistry). At first, it was fascinating however, the excessive workload has put me off my degree as well as a career in chemistry. Bye bye Chemistry
I mostly hate my course because of the weekly 20-30 hour workload... I also have to spend EVERY 4-6 weeks before the exam period doing daily 4 hours revision for 2-3 exams.. Really burns you out and it isnt fun if you werent into chem in the first place.
I don't find chem interesting in any way. If I could pick my course I would do Comp science for the money ( 27k/30k straight out of uni and way less stress than chem); if I had all the money in the world I would have studied (ancient)history.
If you arent then why are you even doing it? Im lucky my degree pays well, but money is not a factor at all. Economic just fascinates me in its ability to explain so much. Money is just a bonus and I would study it even if it paid minimum wage.
