## Main Question or Discussion Point

Here is my background: in tenth grade I was very average in the fields of maths and science. To tell the truth, I was far more interested in arts. But when I first discovered Newton's equations on motion, there was a big change. I was so intrigued by those that I started to read about physics, and the more I read, the more I was interested. I then bought myself a high school physics book, and went through it in about 2 months. I was unsatisfied: I was very bothered by the fact that I was blindly using formulas that I had to believe in simply because they were in the book. I soon realized that I didn't have the necessary mathematical background to go further. The following 18 months had been devoted to the study of university level mathematics. But here I am, I developed a tremendous love for mathematics, so much that I almost lost sight of physics. Now here's the dilemma: I like the study of physics allot, but I feel that if choose to be a physicist I will never become a masterful mathematician, which is something that I dearly wish. To which camp do I belong?
