I'm starting to rethink whether I want to become a physicist or not. The only reason why I want to join a univ is simply for the sake of learning. I just love learning physics, but I don't think that justifies entering a univ. What should I do in this situation? I do indeed want a job physics related but have no desire to go to a univ because I don't think much emphasis is being put into learning in itself, instead more about mindless results rather than progression. Should I simply study physics in my spare time and become a physicist pretender in my basement or what?
