      Yes I do, most of the time. It is a very demanding job and sometimes I do feel very tired or frustrated, but I can’t imagine doing anything else.

      I enjoy it most of the time, but there are times it is hard or frustrating, but it is always worth it when you get through those hard times and make an important discovery!

      I really do! Like Isabel and Jared (and most other scientists!) I often find it challenging but I am sure that this is the case in many other jobs too! I feel like I made a good choice working on science and try to make a positive contribution while having fun which keeps me going even when times get hard.
