Hi guys. I'm an education major. I'm about to transfer to a university where I was planning on getting my undergraduate degree in education with a concentration in English. However, both my uncle and my dad were great at math. My uncle was accepted into a highly prestigious college for technology (back in the 50's), but turned it down because his mother wanted him to join the army instead. He fought in the Vietnam War and came back to join the University of Florida, where he received his engineering degree. He also worked for what is now known as Lockheed Martin. Recently, I've been thinking seriously about a physics degree. I've always been interested in the stars, the origins of the universe, NASA, etc. and even have memories of walking in the big warehouses, where they would be building parts of the space shuttle (there would be big curtains that blocked most of it off, but in other paces you could walk inside of them). This was when I was around 5 or 6 and I got to go to work with my father a few times. It's always been on my mind and, until the present day, I never really took it serious. I don't know why. I grew up in a rather unorthodox way - in that, I didn't go to college right after highschool. I wanted success without the need for higher education. Three years ago I went back to college, now I'm 34, and I'm serious about changing my major to physics. I have a family with two kids, and a wife, but I don't do much else aside from that. I understand that math will be a challenge, but a challenge I'm willing to accept. When I was taking my math courses before I was usually the first one to finish my exams in test and, last test I remember, made a 97. Most of everyone in the same class didn't do so well. So, I know I'm capable. My greatest challenge right now is accepting the challenge completely, i.e. in other words, making the decision to pursue the path and changing my major. Just wanted to get advice or thoughts from the community. Thanks.
