Let your passion bring you anywhere you want!On May 30, 2017 by neurotravels
Six years ago, I packed my bags and moved 8 hours train ride away from home to begin my studies. Biology it should be. At some point in high school I realised that science it apparently is – THE topic I had enough passion for to spend hours and months and years of time on.
As kind of nerd I always liked studying in school (well, it declined continuously after I was introduced to parties and that kinda fun, but still, I was motivated). So, it was always clear that university would be the next step. I wanted to learn, I wanted to study!
I have always been super- interested in psychology but was not sure if I had enough courage to do the job afterwards. I realised how much passion I had for Biology in the last months of high school and I wrote my thesis about the amazing mirror neurons (seriously, soo cool!). How amazing to combine biology and psychology!
And off she goes . . .
I completed my Bachelor in Biology within three years (I though rushing through my studies will make me stand out of the 1300+ biology students which started their Bachelor in Vienna that year). Then moved to Zurich in Switzerland to complete my Masters. And now- I am sitting in a cool suburb in Melbourne, Australia, writing this possibly first-ever blog entrance, talking about myself, on one hand feeling stupid and on the other feeling like this is a good decision.
I have also travelled and moved a lot in the past years and I loved that I was able to combine my passion for science and traveling, moving around and living in different cities, soaking up different countries’ lifestyles.
And I am sure you can do it, too!
Rocket science? Not at all!
I am not a rocket scientist. And it wasn’t easy all the time. One crucial thing I learned over the past years was that I am always super- underestimating me. But I REALLY am no rocket scientist. What I also learned and still am learning every day, is the amazing fact that you don’t have to be!
What about yourself?
- I want to share with you what it is like to be a scientist. If you seek for someone who can introduce you to this weird world, I hope I can help!
- If you are unsure about moving during your studies (or just little too lazy), if you are not sure what to pay attention for while searching for a great lab or how to include your travels in your career- I know some stuff about that, and I will find out a lot more as my journey goes.
- If you are just interested in the places I am traveling to, the cities I live in, let me show them to you.
- If you are a friend of mine somewhere around this world and just wanna keep track of what I am doing- I am also writing for you (love you guys)! 😉
I never meet scientists while traveling- maybe I do the wrong type of travels. But maybe a lot of you think it is not possible? Well it is! And it is good and it is great!
Let your passion for science bring you everywhere you want!
I mean literally. Anywhere. And figuratively – on your way to success. If you bring enough motivation and interest with you, you can achieve everything you want. Passion is the key!
