So I'm currently an undergrad physics major, and looking to pursue a Ph.D in physics. I was recently talking to one of my friends, who is a grad plasma physics student, about his research. He seems to like physics a lot, but when I talked to him he said his research is boring. I replied with something like, "Oh, well I am going to do interesting research," and he said it is all boring unless your making discoveries in your research. I don't know if the field just isn't right for him, or if he's right. I guess my question is do you agree? I love physics. Granted, I still have a lot to learn, but it's so interesting and fun. I like talking about a variety of subjects, but if someone even mentions physics I can talk to the point where they regret knowing me. That being said, I don't want the subject I love to become something I have to do to make a living. I just don't want the passion to die. I want to love what I do. My lab experience is minimal for physics, but I am making progress in getting more. So far I like it. I would like to do something in theoretical physics (Nuclear, Particle, Condensed Matter, Optics). So, what do you think?
