Think about the last time you broke a rule (a big one, not just ripping the tags off your pillows). Were you burned, or did things turn out for the best?
It’s not so easy to define a rule for me. Because I like to follow the rules in my mind. They are set up according to some important values I believe and complied to the law. If I have to mention one, not choosing to be a medical technologist or not doing the biology research is probably the thing breaking some social rules in Taiwan. As a bachelor and a master of medical science, but I didn’t keep doing anything related what I had learned at school. It’s just not OK for most Taiwanese including my parents. I leave the route of normal life a little bit too far away for them. Therefore, even since I left science for about two year, we still fight about this issue sometimes.
For me, it’s a bit too early to say that it’s good to do so or not. At least I do not feel regret so far. As an art administrator, there are still so many knowledges waiting for me. If someday someone says to me that “how great that you didn’t choose to be a medical technologist, you are born for being an art administrator.” Then part of my dream will be accomplished.
