I enjoyed being a "human book" recently. I spoke to a series of grade nine students about my so-called career path, at least bits that related to science. I don’t know whether if they got anything out of me talking about myself and attempting to make sense of my life. It seems like such a good idea to have students meet people in different kinds of occupations to consider possibilities. I told them how I went to school before the Internet. Interestingly, they seemed to think life was better then because you could spend time with people in person.
