I've always loved physics, and am constantly reading about it. Usually I just read those laymen's physics books like "a brief history of time", "the elegant universe", or "hyperspace." My math backround is only up to trig. (last class i took) and i never took high school physics. Well im going to be a freshman in college within a week, and I am seriously considering studying physics. I don't know if its right for me though. Some questions I have: Is it possible that it's actually too difficult, or can hard work overcome that? Is it really hard to get a job doing physics (i dont care about money but A job is a necessity)? Am i just day dreaming? I always here about how hard it is, it makes me worried, but i think about the phsyical world alot, even if i don't have a high school education in it. I'm brushing up on all my pre-calc math, just to be ready for calc. I really want to do it, but is it foolish to do if you're not a super genius?
