alright.. now.. as someone who is struggling to figure out what they want to study i wanted to ask you guys a question..:
would you rather spend your life doing something you absolutely love that you suck at and struggle with? Or would you do something you like but are soo good at it it comes naturally?

Challenges... life is always about challenges. I definetly say do what you love. You say you "suck" at it, but no doubt if you love it, you will develop skills. And you can also always learn more at what you are good at naturally. Learning is a process, so go for what you love. Expand your mind and the possibilities images/smilies/smile.gif.

go with love and challenges!
right now i'm doing something that i like but it comes naturally (behavioral neurosceince research), i've been in this lab for almost two years and it has become 'just a job' to me.
when your heart isn't in what you are doing, the 'like' part fades, and i've started to feel like i'm not going anywhere.
it's the challenges that help you learn.
loving what you are doing makes your accomplishments exponentially more meaningful.

imagine how horrible it would be to stop pushing your limits! eventually you'd begin to dread going to work each day b/c there's no challenge in it.
what an awful fate that would be!
(i guess this also comes down to how important money is)

stick with it Brianna. they say that the process of learning is the most painful process you will ever experience. think about how many hours you have sat there pulling your hair out over one stupid physics problem or such. but it's that feeling of accomplishment when you finally figure it out or when you get an A on a test on which we thrive. you can do it! images/smilies/wink.gif
