It's been two years now, and I'm willing to take on any amount of insane mathematics if I can help Einstein achieve his dream of a grand unified theory which encompasses all of the fundamental forces. I've heard a lot of good things about string theory, although to be quite honest, I'm barely familiar with the concepts - so I don't know a lot about the mathematics of string theory.

I am currently studying physics and mathematics independently, as - due to lethargy prior to becoming a senior - I've been placed in 'Introduction to College Algebra'. So far I've pretty much covered all of algebra, and a lot of Calculus. As of right now, I'm studying Linear Algebra and am just getting acquainted with matrices. I am very thankful to Khan Academy for the chance to study such mathematics whilst still in high school.

Right now I'd like to know what I should be doing in terms of preparing to become a theoretical physicist. I want to know what I should be studying so that I may help my dear friend. I know that this may seem a bit silly, but this has become my life's goal.

I'm sorry if any of this either doesn't make sense or doesn't flow - I'm in a very loud library in a public school right before lunchtime.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read all of this.
