My purpose in life seems to be laid out for me
I’m a teen and I’ve always loved ‘exotic’ animals. A year ago I decided that I want to pursue a zoology career, hoping that maybe I could get a position in herpetology specifically (the study of reptiles and amphibians). I have a handful of reptiles as pets. Well, turns out that my second cousin was exactly the same way (We even had the same species of snake as a pet) but after getting a degree in zoology, she never used it because she converted to Christianity and took up a housewife position. I was born soon after she made that decision, like I was a kind of replacement for the person she was originally intending on being. I didn’t even know about her almost becoming a zoologist and having reptile pets until after I already discovered my passion for the same things and I have only met her once in my entire life. I’m really weirded out, is it just a coincidence or something more? Hope I explained this well.
