Now, I've still got a couple of years to go before I graduate but I have started thinking about my future. I enjoy physics, I really do. I know most people over here probably do too. The point is that while I enjoy working on experiments in a lab or doing theoretical work, I don't want my whole life to be just that. I want some excitement (and I don't mean the excitement of a new physics discovery) in my life while still mainting connections to physics. Exciting as in the sort of excitment a fighter pilot or a surgeon or a storm chaser experiences on a regular basis! I can't think of many career options that involve physics related work and are still exciting. The only one that popped into my head was astronaut. That's the sort of thing I want; a thrill in my job. So, am I expecting too much by wanting to have my cake and eat it too or are there more physics based career options that involve that thrill factor that I want? As always, thank you for reading and replying!
