How do I become a scientist?

Do I only like science because I only pursue it in the most trivial, browsy, shallow way possible?  Currently watching Mythbusters and having multiple geekgasms. I also like reading Popular Science and watching movies like What the Bleep Do We Know? Sometimes I even get the urge to go back to school for another four years to become some kind of professional scientist.  In the end, I’m worried that my curiosity will turn out not to be particularly resistant to deep and sustained engagement.

I think I lack the capacity for proper zeal.
