Yes, I have yet another thread asking for advice, and yes, I am also adding to the list of threads on this topic. I suppose having an audience to talk to will help me clear out my head before I even get responses, however, I would definitely like some advice. I'm currently torn between engineering and physics. Engineering appears to be the "easy" route. I've got lots of interests and I feel like if I became an engineer I could quickly get through school and dig right into it. I also have a passion for designing things. However, with physics my goals are a bit loftier. I am hopelessly curious about questions of existence, and I feel like physics is the only way to actually bring me closer to a deeper understanding about the way things are. However, I also feel like it will subtract from my time. The only way that physics will be more fruitful than engineering for me is if I end up actually doing things that are on the fringe. And, I'm not certain that I want to put the time in for that. I'm also not certain that I'm consistently diligent enough to go through the rigors of grad school. I've had my spurts (70 hour week in the library studying for a test, getting a B in a class that 90% of the class failed), but I also have had my lazier periods where I'm not as motivated. That sense of mystery gives way to curiosity, and thus physics often feels like more of an impulse than a passion, sort of like reading a good story, and you just want to see what happens next. The problem is, you can be basically certain that you'll never reach the conclusion of this story. And that's where I hit my motivational wall of "What's the point?" I rather like the process of designing things much more than I like the process of experimentation. I absolutely love solving practical problems with creativity and ingenuity. It feels like I'd just be missing that mystery and satisfaction of curiosity. Whenever I see a design problem, my immediate instinct is to jump in and try to figure it out myself. I just have a hard time discontinuing physics because I love that too! I don't have time to do both in the way in which I would do either one. If I do physics, it needs to be balls deep, years of grad school, academic physics for fundamental questions. If it's engineering, it has to be more straight engineering. The way in which I would like to do either one doesn't really appear to be something that would be mixed in engineering physics. And, I want to make my final decision rather quickly so that I can move along. Thank you for reading.
