I went to school knowing I wanted to study science but not sure what I wanted to do with that. As a kid I mixed shampoo bottles and made flower infused creations, lined up my stuffed animals for school, played check up with my siblings and dolls, studied wildlife on my high-tech binoculars (read: looked at my stuffed animals through two empty toilet paper rolls taped together), and annoyed my parents asking for math problems to do.
