Hi! I'm currently a Sophomore at the University of Tennessee. The universe has something I've been interested in ever since I was a little kid. I always enjoyed watching tv shows on the science channel or discovery about anything space related. I'm currently taking my first physics class on modern mechanics, and parts of it I have enjoyed and parts of it I haven't. For instance, we've done some problems that have been really interesting, but generally the homework we've been doing lately isn't. I don't know if it really isn't interesting or if it is me not enjoying doing the physics for the problem. I'm also taking an introductory astronomy course this semester. For a couple of months now, I've been wanting to take up astronomy as a hobby. Last night I had my first telescope lab, and I really really liked it. For the most part, I enjoy the lecture for the class too, even though now we are starting to get into more of the memorization realm of astronomy. So I know I have an interest in the universe, and I want to learn more, I'm just worried that I won't enjoy the part where I have to actually do the physics. Like I've said, some of it so far has been really cool, but then at other times it hasn't. If anyone has any advice for my current situation it would be greatly appreciated! I'm going to try to start reading some physics oriented books by some people I look up to, such as Neil Degrasse Tyson. I will also be having an advising session with my professor next week! I really appreciate the help! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
