Alright, I had a long post with background information and everything, but then something happened and I lost everything I wrote on the last minute. So I'm just gonna do this briefly... I'm 18, finishing High School, and I need help deciding whether Science -or Physics is right for me. Is there something I can try or do that'll help me find the answer? Why did you guys choose Physics? How's your life? The money? How's your social life? Working hours? Enough time for recreational activities? Enough time for second jobs/professions? A third? In short, what's it like being a physicist?
