Alright, first of all I'm going to say that astronomy and physics are my biggest passion and have been since I was very young. I'm going to try and keep this small and not get too personal here, I apologize ahead of time though if I sound like I'm complaining or something. So I'm fresh out of high school and never once thought about going to college all through school. To be honest, I had no clue what I was going to do (I was completely against paying to learn). During high school I slacked and whatnot and hardly did any homework, blah blah you guys know that story and I didn't take the SAT. So now I'm at a point where I'm like "what am I going to do with my life?". The only thing I want to do is try to solve the mysteries of the universe(however childish that sounds), its been my goal since forever but I thought I could do it without college. I never thought I was going to make it out of the situation I was in with my family and whatnot (I'm not going to get all personal and tell the information on here, if any of you are generally interested then shoot me a pm, I'll tell you). Right now I'm feeling that my only option is to go to the community college near me and make sure I do really well there and with a little luck and a lot of hope try to transfer out into a "real" school for astrophysics. Can anyone on here guide me at all? If anyone has any questions or anything please just post them here or send me a pm, I'll respond to the best of my abilities.
