9th Grade Final Writing Exam

Hello once again people who read this blog! The school year is almost to an end, and with it comes tests/exams. Not as many as my public schooling friends, but a few. One of them is my writing exam. "What could it be?" you may be wondering in your beautiful minds. Well, as some of you may know, I want to be a Marine Biologist once I grow up. So today, I'm going to be discussing Marine Biology with you folks, and some of the things you might need to know.

If you're new to this kind of topic, or live under a rock like a sea star, you might be wondering "What is Marine Biology?". Well, Marine Biology is very simple. It's the study of all organisms (plant and animal) that live in the ocean/brackish water. Yeah, simple. However, it's not to be confused with Marine Ecology, which is the study of organisms and how they react with each other and/or the environment. Marine Biology interests me more than M. Ecology for many reasons, but we'll get to that later.

Now, as I said above, Marine Biologists strive to find out all they can about the oceans inhabitants. They're the oceans biological treasure hunters, if you will. There are specific kinds of Marine Biologists though. I don't know their specific role names, but I've watched enough documentaries to know what each specializes in. Some are the divers, which is the most famous role. They're the ones that go down for hands on experience with the wild. It's also the most dangerous job, in my opinion. Along with divers there's also the above crew, including the navigator and the prep team. They very rarely go down in the water, if at all, but their roles are clear. Remember, contrary to popular belief, you DO NOT need to be a diver to be a M. Biologist. It's simply the study of all ocean creatures, regardless of your role.

That may all sound happy-fun-time (because it is), but to many people there's one thing that's majorly important when considering a job. That would be the root of all evil, money. Marine Biologists make a pretty steady rate as their career unfolds. They start off with about 33,000 a year if they have less than a year of experience. Those who have around 2 to 5 years of experience can earn anywhere from 45,000 to 57,000 a year; and if you have 5+ years you can earn up to 70,000. It's a pretty nice paying job. However, in order to reach that job, you need to get the proper education, probably the hardest/worst part of it. According to, depending how far you wish to go in M. Biology determines how much you must do. Entry-level jobs will only require a bachelors degree, but to perform your own research you will need a Masters Degree. I will personally probably go for my Masters, even though it might kill me two and a half times on the way. The classes I would need to learn are Chemistry (Yay), Biology (YAY), Zoology (YAY), Psychics (Not too sure how to feel about that), and Mathematics (SOMEONE KILL ME NOW.). It also says English isn't a must have, but it comes in handy when writing research papers. Eh, I'm ok at English. I might skip that one lol #bestEnglishskillsever.
Sorry I had to. Anyway.

By now, you might be wondering.. Why do I want to be a M. Biologist? There's a few reasons actually. I've loved animals for all my life, but I've always loved the ocean and..most, of its inhabitants. Some things like the Goblin Shark are simply Gods mistake, but that's besides the point. I've also always wanted to discover new things. We know more about THE MOON than we do our oceans. A lot more in fact. I want to get down there and see what there is to see. Who knows what I might find? A new species of whale? Mermaids? BIGFOOT?! Probably not. But who knows what's down there? Another reason is because I want to keep our environments safe, especially the oceans. In this day and age though, people seem to be forgetting how precious our planet is. They cut down rain forests, pollute the land, sea, and sky, and scatter plastic all over the place like it's no big deal. -If you want to see my plastic-in-the-oceans-rant, check about....7 posts ago.- I want to try and put a stop to that, and I know I'm not the only one.
Also, because dolphins are cute. Why else?

Our oceans are a very interesting and mysterious place. I want to/am going to figure out its secrets, and educate the world on exactly how precious our oceans, and the whole planet Earth, really are. Who knows where it'll take me? Africa? Australia? Asia? The North Pole? Only time can tell. Heh, who knows, maybe I'll be the next M. Biologist Jeff Corwin or Steve Irwin. Wouldn't that be cool.

Well, that my friends is my final writing exam for 9th grade. If you like it leave a comment, or don't. That works too. I get it. I know I'm not loved......... Kidding. I'll see you guys in the ocean, in like.....ten years. Peace.
