Doing research is challenging, so if you like challenges, I can promise you a lot of fun!
The job is interesting most of the time, and you get to know plenty of people coming from different backgrounds. I love it 🙂
It definitely is fun as long as you are working or studying in the field you like! My advise before anyone becomes a scientist is do a bit of research on what you actually get to study and what is the day to day life is like!
For me I really like astronomy but I didn’t think I would like the work so I picked geology instead, since I thought the work is more fun!
