Hi everyone! I've been a lurker for a while and finally decided to join and say hi. Quick and dirty bio info: I have a BA in Poli Sci and briefly attended law school at mom's prompting, but dropped out because I hated it. Working at a bank now, bored out of my mind most of the time. I've always been interested in physics but didn't have much in the way of support or role models when I was younger, so I bounced around a lot, and after a decade of working in corporate America have finally decided to go for it. Just getting started over with undergrad classes, with grad school as an eventual goal (I've read everything I could find on it and will probably be doing just the math/physics classes since I'm in CA and doing a full second bachelors isn't really possible, but I'm near UCSD and as far as I'm aware can take everything as a non-degree student, with the big challenge of course being getting research). I'm also fortunate enough to have sort of a mentor this time around. I'm in my early 30s and aware this will be a long haul, but I don't plan to have kids, so I'm all in. Very happy to have found PF!
