Is it fun being a scientist
Doing science as a job is like any other job or profession, in the sense that one has responsibilities, things that from time to time might stress you out, or that you don't like.
However, there is in my opinion something quite unique about being a scientist: You are all the time doing new things. You spend your time thinking about ideas that nobody thought of before, or inventing new devices and machines that can do things that were impossible before. In a sense, you are shaping the future and that is super exciting and fun.
