I am studying physics as a self-study and would like advice on the next topics to study.

So far I have been studying:

-calculus, linear algebra and basic physics

-classical mechanics (from Goldstein's textbook)

-classical electrodynamics and special relativity (from Griffiths textbook and "Spacetime physics")

-mathematical methods (from Boas' textbook)

-quantum mechanics (from Griffiths' textbook and some topics from Sakurai's textbook)

What should I study after that?

General relativity, QFT, another topic? I've browsed through some general relativity and QFT books, but they seem too advanced (differential geometry, spinors, etc). What are the prerequisites needed for these subjects?

My goal is to understand modern physics (what happens at the LHC, string theory, cosmology, etc).

Thank you and sorry for my English.
