      Hey again SkittleLover!

      Yes I totally did, although back then I just thought “bugs are cool!”
      Then I thought “Diseases are cool!”

      And now I think “Phylogenetics is cool”.

      So it’s kinda like a gradual thing 😀

      I don’t think I’m grownup enough to answer this…..

      However, when I was a kid I didn’t really worry about it. I just knew I liked finding stuff out, and I could do that in science. Then the more I learnt about it, the more I realised how awesome it is 🙂
