to succed at my dream.. - July 30th 2013, 05:43 AM

Well most people who know me know about my fascination with reptiles. Well my dream is too go to college as a Biology major next year with an Emphasis on Zoology/Herpetology (study of Reptiles and amphibians) then to go to grad school more than likely down in Texas to work on a masters in hereptology, and go for a PH.D in Herpetology/venom research. I'd like to be able to do research as a career, specifically with venomous animals, research on how they act, how they're venoms act, and how the venoms can be used as cures for things. I'd also like to be able to do work with giant constrictors, monitors and Crocodiles. if that doesn't work out then I'd like to open up my own business as a breeder working with all different species of reptiles, including Venomous, giant constrictors, and crocodiles. I am hopefully starting my mentoring for venomous snakes next summer, so that I can learn how to work with them efficiently and safely. I also plan on getting into venomous lizards next year starting out with Beaded lizards, and then moving onto Gila monsters.. I would also like to be able to maintain a big personal collection that includes monitors, crocodiles, venomous snakes and lizards, and plenty of other things. I really don't know how well all of this will work out, but I really hope I can make it work, because like I said it really is my lifes dream.. no matter how crazy

Hai josh,

This sounds like a really great goal! I think it's really important to do something that you're passionate about, so since your passionate about reptiles, why not? I don't think it's really crazy at all. Good luck! I don't think I'd be able to work with all the different types of reptiles, even if they are pretty cool.

Wow! That sounds like a great goal you have setup for yourself - and although it may sound alittle crazy, I think it is very achievable! It's all about what you have a passion for & what you will love to do with your life. So if doing all this is your passion - go for it!

I wish you the best of luck!


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

You like reptiles a lot, so I think this is the best thing for you. Doing what you love! I also think that you can succeed. Don't give up on the idea, you can do it.

Hey, Josh, that sounds like a great plan. It's nice that you have back-ups in case the original plan doesn't work out too well. Good luck!
