      Hi @winne13 and @lion123

      I have never regretted becoming a scientist. I have found it difficult, frustrating, disheartening on occasions, but I’ve always been pleased that I am a scientist!

      Thanks for the question!

      Sometimes when my experiment hasnt worked and I’m working late and fed up I might regret it a little bit but then by the next day, I’m over it and really happy and feeling lucky that I do what I do again. Its just natural to have little ups and downs i think, no matter what your job is!

      Hi @winnie13 and @lion123

      Being a scientist is definitely hard work, and sometimes I get fed-up when an experiment hasn’t worked, but I never get bored – so I have never regretted becoming a scientist. 🙂
