Hi, i am currently a junior in high school, and i am very interested in becoming a physicist. However, i don't want to jump to any conclusions based on any false idealized notion of what i think being a professional physicist would be like. I am currently in an honors physics class and a member of the American Physical Society. I plan on getting my B.S. in physics and eventually obtaining my phd in physics. Although astrophysics interests me the most at the moment, i am still unsure what i want to specialize in. I'm going to wait until i am exposed to all of the subfields to find my true passion. I was wondering if anyone would share any insight and advice pertaining to the reality and steps of a career in physics and the things that i should be doing now to get the best start to a successful career. Thanks.
