Well, I'll start with a summary of my life story. Up untill the 4th grade I was homeschooled, hence I had some academic freedom. I have always excelled in math (learning multiplication when I was about 5 from a computer game) but English always tends to bore me. I've always wanted to learn French or German, but have never been given the opprutunity until I decided that I actually wanted to learn them (my mom is German so she tried teaching me German when I was in the 1st and 2nd grade, but I never caught on). Until I was about 8, I never caught on to stuff easily. After that I started reading a book (I think it was an old one about Astronomy and Physics) and the field of Theoretical Physics caught my eye, even though I was more interested with astronomy at the time. I know that I'd have to work harder to reach my goals and I did. I did quite a bit of studying and I started noticing that Astronomy tied in very closely with Physics. I started studying that, too. But I found that Physics was much more interesting, and important, than the basic Astronomy I was learning so I left my earlier field and started getting more in-depth with Physics. By the time I started going to public school, the 4th grade, I was able to catch on to most basic and some more difficult concepts if they were explained. Near the end of the year I started going through a process that would eventually have me skip the fifth grade. During the process I had to take an IQ test. The questions seemed to come easily to me. A few weeks later I went to a meeting along with the principle, my teacher at the time, and several other people. I found out that I scored very high on the IQ test. They told me my IQ was 220, and that it was in the first percentile. I didn't think much of it at the time for two reasons. One was that I didn't know that the avereage IQ was 100, and two was that I thought that "first percentile" meant that 1% of people my age were smarter than me, not that <1% of people my age were as smart as I was. The only thing that haunts me about the sixth grade is that I made no friends for various reason that I will not elaborate upon. But in the seventh grade I quickly made friends, but not many (something like 10 out of an 85-person class). Right now I'm in the 8th grade, I turn 13 in a week, and I'm currently learning about more advanced physics. The problem is finding where I can learn it, since I'll easily catch on if it's explained. I'm currently reading Stephen Hawking's The Universe in a Nutshell. So, what do you think? Am I on the right track? I hope to go to MIT to major in physics, maybe mathmatics, and I hope to minor in Quatum Theory.
