## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I am a junior in high school and I can't seem to decide between physics or mathematics. I have always had an affinity for the two subjects since preschool. This is a very difficult decision for me because I enjoy both subjects very much.

My knowledge for both subjects are at a layman's level, but I am aware of some of the subjects of today. For math I know the greats (Euclid, Archimedes, Fermat, Galois, Cantor, Gauss, Euler, Poincare, Bourbaki, Godel, etc.), the current players (Tao, Wiles, Grothenidieck, Conway), and a very basic layman knowledge of the subjects (Topology, Set Theory, Number Theory, Discrete Mathematics, etc.).

The same goes for physics, but I won't list them to not appear pretentious.

Could you please help? I am confused.
