My dream job?

8 replies
For the first time, I've written a brief paragraph about my dream job as my writing exercise. Can someone check this for me, please?

I always wanted to become a Paleontologist. I found this job was very interesting, fun and quite adventurous. I love to understand all the history of life on earth and I think it would be amazing if we can find out what really happened on earth in the earlier days.

Unfortunately, I knew that I wouldn't be able to reach my dream job because of several reasons. When I was in school, although I loved all those science subjects, I'm not really into Mathematic (which is one of the important subjects of requirement). Besides, I found out that Paleontology Course hadn't been offered in any universities in my country. The only way to further studies in this field was by studying abroad, which I knew I couldn't afford it. Other than that, limited job opportunities also made me realized that this job would be always remains in my dreams ever since.

I really appreciate any helps. Many thanks in advance.

There are lots of different ways of writing this but I have correct keeping the bulk of it the same. Some of the teachers may give you a better suggestion. Well done a good first attempt.

Sorry to be picky Dave but I feel there are still some bugs.
