Science pays the bills.
That was me as an analytical chemist about 2011-ish. Look at me, so young, and almost full of hope. Crippling nihilism was barely on the radar, and Father Time hadn’t waged war on a sack of underachieving fatty meat.
I’ve got a degree in chemistry and a PhD in physics. At the moment I’m having a go at bioanalysis. I’ve worked on nano-particles, cancer drugs, solar cells, dental implants, new anti-biotics, transistors, corrosion inhibitors, anti-psychotics, semi-conductors, gas sensors, asthma drugs, particle accelerators and rat piss.
Even if I made serious dollar from writing (I won’t), I’d still science the shit out of stuff.
