Question: have you ever regretted choosing a career in science or maths? and if so why? when?
There was one time, during my undergraduate degree, when I regretted the choice of a Physics degree. By Tuesday afternoon I had already had more lectures and labs than my friend (studying archaeology) had in a week. That seemed distinctly unfair!
I’ve been very lucky because I’ve always enjoyed being a scientist. I think it is because, in addition to, science, I can do almost everything else anyway. I can still go to the theatre, sing, dance, ski, read etc. I just find that my understanding of things can be deeper because I’m not afraid of the technical side of things.
