What is it really like to be a pharmacist? Is it boring? Do you feel like you're doing something rewarding? Is it worth the money?

A lot of people have told me to go into pharmacy, but I'm worried about feeling like it's a non-rewarding job, as well as messing up someone's prescription and potentially bringing them harm. - I'm a bit of a mess in science (chemistry and biology) lab classes. #medical #biology #chemistry...

Can somebody please fill me in on what chemical engineers do, and where jobs are most common for them?

I think I have a pretty good idea on the job description but I would appreciate a legitimate first hand account. Also, I have no clue on where this occupation is found; my family and I are kinda worried I might have to move across the country (which is something I would be willing to do)....
