What is your ultimate goal? What are you alive to do? I have my answer, but I want to hear some other people first.
Astronomy IS really cool. Space is like an endless tunnel of knowledge just waiting to be known. Good luck!But what do I want to DO with my life? I want to be held responsible for making at least one major discovery related to research of stars - specifically compact stars - or black holes. Yeah, it sounds like the job thing, but... Stars are what I live for. I obsessively think about them all day. They are my life, and astronomy is what I live for.
