Well, I'm an amateur physicist. I don't get paid on what I do and "some" would say its a hobby not a career. However, its something more than a hobby to me. Thus, I believe its my career even though I don't get paid for it.Why do you need/want to go to undergraduate school to get a degree in physics if you already have a career in physics?
I want a Ph.d in physics because I want to make a difference in the science community. I believe I have this "thing" where I care to help the human species. Sadly, I do need money to survive and that's how this world works. However, in the end, I just hope I can expand science and bring light to the mysteries of the universe we live in. Some of you would say "Get real" or "impossible." I believe anything is possible with science.
I hope this convince people in the community that I don't want to be some millionaire or some greedy jerk.
