### Leptos

Is it wrong that I became interested in physics at an age before I could really understand advanced scientific concepts? Since 1st or 2nd grade I started reading layman science books and my interest only increased as I grew older. I remember obsessing over black holes, planets, stars, galaxies, etc. years before I hit puberty.

I ask this because I noticed that it's uncommon for people to grow up to become what they wanted to be from a young age(i.e from their own choice as opposed to letting their parents choose for them).

10. Jan 29, 2010

### zomgwtf

That's probably mostly because the kids have 'unrealistic' goals i.e. becoming a surgeon or a lawyer who makes 1 million a year.

Pursuing science is an honest goal and anyone can 'grow up' to become or continue to hold interest in science (or physics specifically). There's nothing wrong with having an interest in physics at any age and there is definitely nothing wrong with this interest growing or continuing throughout your life. You should be thankful you have so far strived to possibly be a scientist of some sort than a doctor .

### zomgwtf

Lol, this seems like it may be interesting. +I'm extremely bored and slightly depressed atm.

1. When is the latest time you drink water in the day prior to a sleep cycle?
Before I go to sleep I normally drink water. I drink water very often while I'm awake.

2. What are your eating habits? What type of food do you normally eat? Breakfast? Vitamins? ...

I don't eat breakfast very often if I do it's probably just a bagel or some fruit. Right NOW I don't eat very much because of problems I'm having at home with my parents... the only time I really eat is when I have money to go out and get myself some food lol.

3. How much sleep did you need between the ages of 18-20?
Hmmm I've just turned 21 I sleep around 6 hours... When I was 18-20 I was working 30 hours a week and going fulltime to school so I didn't get that much sleep then either :tongue:.

4. Do you exercise? If so, how often and what type of exercise?

I do exercise. I run often and every day I do a core workout and push-ups until exhaustion. I'm thinking about starting to weight train but I don't know if I'm up to it lol. The reason I do this training right now is for my military testing.

5. What is your height, weight, and age?
I am 6'2 and I currently weigh 150lbs. I used to weigh around 180lbs last summer but as I said before problems in the house with my parents have led to me not eating enough food and I've lost a considerable amount of weight.

6. What is(was) your preferred method of taking notes in class?
What are notes?
I rarely took notes in class but my preferred method was by going through a reading and highlighting key points and summarizing them myself in jot-note format in a binder and in chronological order. (Unless I'm writing a essay or something then I group it by various categories)

7. When do you prefer to shower?
In the morning after I am completely awake (hate taking a shower RIGHT when I wake up). I take showers before I go out anywhere and sometimes if I just feel the need to sit with the water beating off my body for a bit lol.

8. How do you fall sleep?
I fall asleep on my side many times with clothes I wore that day on, I never got into the whole pj thing. Unless of course it's too hot or too cold.

9. What type of clothing do you prefer?

I prefer fashionable clothing :tongue:. I like to always look good no matter where I'm going or who I'm with.

Researching various things to do with science, history, philosophy. I like cooking and studying various types of foods and I am a 5 pin bowler (embarassing... Go Canada )

11. Where do you live?
I live in Mississauga Ontario (it's close to Toronto.)

12. How do you like to keep your hair?

I like my hair short enough to be able to style it without it falling down :rofl:

13. What are your hobbies? Favorite books, movies, shows, etc.?
I swear this question was asked before :tongue:. I also like reading any type of book pretty much. Don't watch much TV though.

14. When and how did you become interested in physics?
When I was a child watching the Discovery channel. (when it use to be a good channel to watch to learn that sort of stuff.)

15. Do you masturbate? If so how often(or feel free to leave this part out)?
This question is kind of random why do you ask it? There's nothing wrong with masturbation at all. I don't know if it's something you should be publicly asking people on a science based forums though.
