Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello, I stumbled onto this site because I was looking about how to become a physicist some how and really I need some advice what is a smart move for me. Right now I am in high school taking all of my classes and staying along with what I want to do. I always had an interest in science ever since elementary school. In fifth grade I asked if we could learn physics! but now I have learned to be patient but I feel like I am running out of time with what I want to do. I have a very strong liking or even love for physics because it just is great to answering questions that I have always wanted answers to and I can just help me understand and try to answer some very hard questions where no one has any answer to. Although there is another passion of mine that I have which may seem silly but also something I have had so much caring for. Ever since I was little I liked to play video games and I love computer also. I like playing around and making my own maps for various games even though they are not that great. Is there any career choice that can combine both to not just make a video game per say but maybe a very very well made physics engine for a computer for a multitude of uses from just making models and predictions but also practical form of entertainment or something of the sort. What would you say would be the best collage for me if I wanted to become a physicist in a theoretical and maybe a traditional field? Or just tell me if it is a good idea or not and why. I just am not sure if I can enjoy my future.
