    I went to school for environmental science, kinda liked it, but after I graduated, my heart really wasn't in the right state of mind for the type of jobs out there for it, so I got a teacher's certification and became a teacher. I disliked that even more. So, I dug my heels deep, and miraculously got a job as a Geologist for an engineering firm.

    I'm not actually sure how I got the job, as I'm neither an engineer, nor did I go to school for geology. Most of my day consists of going to worksites, taking coring samples, mapping stratum layers, and running lab tests on soil samples to ensure that the ground that is being built on can support the weight of buildings and other structures. If it can't, I have to figure out how to make it work.

    That's all fine and cool, but 99.99% of the time, I feel like I'm just doing this:
