classical physics bores the hell out of me. I could give a damn about the velocity of object 'a' given time and distance. but when I read about quantum physics, relativity etc., my mind is fully alert, and I zone in on the topic at hand. I do not comprehend the idea of 'sleepiness' when I read these topics. I know I must understand classical physics first to lay the foundation, before I get into the advanced topics. I'm willing to put in the time for this. but is this normal? I mean, I know only I can answer the questions 'do I really like physics', but can anyone relate to my situation? or is physics going to be a short lived 'fad' for me? edit: I just re-read my post, and I think it's kind of a tough question for others to answer for me, I guess I'm not looking for an answer. Rather, I'm hoping to find others that love physics now who've gone through what I'm going through with classical physics.
