What is the average salary for an archaeologist or paleontologist? Is it worth it?
Since I was little I could understand tons of dinosaur anatomy and latin names, but I was discouraged by my parents. Later at about age 11, I kind of got interested in paleontology and ancient civilizations. And now, I’m feeling for some travel in my future life? should I major in archaeology/paleontology? i can become travel sick very easily though, and geography definately isn’t my strong point. Also, I’m very strong in English/Language Arts, but unless I can become an author I wouldn’t get very near it.
Also, up until now, I was trying to get into the medical field, but now I realize that one: I’m mediocre, two: I don’t think I could handle working in a clinic or lab all day, and three: it was all my parents’ idea anyway. I am a bit interested in human anatomy, but I don’t think my skills will get me very far.
I’m also afraid of bugs…. does that matter?
