You should do what you love to do because it makes you happy

I believe that you should do what you love to do because it makes you happy. I love working with animals, I always have and I always will. It’s been my dream to be a veterinarian since I was little, back when Animal Planet had actually good shows, one of my favorite TV shows that took place in a veterinary clinic and documented the things that happened there. I loved the idea of healing animals back to health and saving their lives. Unfortunately, later in life I found that I fainted at the sight of blood, so that wasn’t going to work out.
For a short while I wanted to be a baker because I love pastries and baking but still animals were part of my plan. I was going to open a pet friendly bakery. Where I made all natural animal and human treats. I could sell homemade pet toys and adorable mini sweaters next to big matching sweaters. That would have been fun too, until I thought more about it and realised that baking wasn’t my passion, it was just a fun thing to do on the weekends.
So the hunt carried on until I started to really become interested in genetics.
Most recently in the past couple of years and I found it fascinating. In seventh grade I learned that One way that it applies to the working world is the idea of taking traits of breeds that humans like and applying them to different breeds of dogs, cats and horses to breed the “perfect” animal for human use.
Over the summer of 2014 I had gone to the Galapagos Islands. The idea that some poor iguana from the mainland had found its way across the Pacific Ocean and onto the islands where over generations it adapted to the islands environment and learn how to survive. That just blows my mind and I wanted to figure out why. But in the end once more I realized that it probably wasn’t the job for me because I know that I would prefer a job that doesn’t takes place in a lab or office all the time. Even though it would probably pay better than what I really want to do, which is to be a zookeeper.
My love of animals will be put to the test a lot but, that’s the great thing about love, it stays strong as long as there is something worth working for and I will be working for the happiness of the animals. I know that it doesn’t sound like a very good job to some people, cleaning up cages, feeding, and taking care of the zoo animals but that is what I love to do. The people need to know that these animals are here for them, to teach them, and allow them to experience new things. Animals are what I love and what I’m passionate about and most importantly, they make me happy.
