I especially love this quote by Joan of Arc:

"I never lose sight of my divine mission; everything else is a means to that end."
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

have you thought much about your career? (that's a pretty dumb question, sorry)

But like, where do you plan to go?

I'd like to go to college and major in biology. I plan to one day earn a PhD in evolutionary or environmental biology.

hmm, that's interesting, what's your major area in biology now? And what has sparked your interest?

Really all you can do is do what you can and hope/pray that they'll rise above whatever's holding them down.

I'm just very good at science and biology is where I'm strongest; I love studying how living things work and interact with each other. It's really the logical conclusion of looking at what I'm good at and picking the one I love.

I come mostly from the human biology side, because of my last year of school. I learned quite a bit and did well, and loved my teacher so she really got me going on it. But I think I love Marine Biology more. My teacher had her degree in it, so she instilled her love into me for it.
