I have been out of high school for 3 yrs now and have taken college on and off. I work alot and find it hard to get what i want out of school because of a physically demanding job. I am going to ditch this job because school is the rest of my life and a check is for a week. I have a HUGE passion for the physical world. So much so that i am thinking I want it to be the rest of my life. I could care less what job ill ever get, or how much money it will bring but that I know everything that i can about it. I want to learn EVERY term, formula, theory and ect. that has been developed. I want to further the human knowledge of what weknow of the universe, and why it is what it is. Im unsure about the decision though. I just dont want to do this to do this. I am willing to take all the tedious math to get to any point. I have recently been teaching myself calc and im currently learning physics through a work book (thermodynamics, mirrors and lenses, electricity and magn, harmonic motion ect.). I need some advice from someone who is not studying this ONLY for the stature or economics but because of a true passion for the realm. Another problem is, is that i find myself even more inclined to space, in regards to Astrophysics. This is where i think i become confused because my passion to know everything about this particular subject sometimes overtakes my sleep. lol. what do i do??
