There are also numerous resources available, including online courses and tutorials, books and magazines, and science museums and centers. To make time for your hobby, consider setting aside a specific day or time each week or incorporating science into your daily routine. Pursuing science as a hobby can have many benefits, such as improving critical thinking skills, expanding knowledge and understanding, and providing a creative outlet and opportunities for networking

Hi Guys,

I used to be fairly active on PF during my engineering days, but went on to get an MBA in post grad.

I'm working in consumer goods marketing now, but miss math and the sciences. Anyway, I'm trying to get back into the sciences, perhaps not professionally, but as a hobby (a very very tall order, I know) and couldn't think of a better place to start again than PF.

A shout out to Evo, Danger, Astronuc, Mathwonk, and all the great people who make PF such a great place.

Cheers!

I'm glad to be back!

And I have a new appreciation for PF now that even the (once) simple problems in physics and mathematics leave me confounded :woot::-p

I'll be hitting the homework forums in full swing! Who knows, I might even find some of my old posts useful!

It's great to see everyone is still up and active!

How are you all doing?

Doing well. Really happy you are back, so many old members have moved on with their lives. Me, I have no life. :H

I've dropped in on PF from time to time, but haven't had anything to post really.

Have been working in a fairly involved job in consumer goods marketing in India, and doing well in general. However, over the last year or so, I've felt a bit disconnected.

I used to love spending time doing math/physics/chemistry and somehow just missed it.

How have you been?

It's amazing there are so many members from back then who are still active and contributing!

Well, you're always welcome here.

Honestly, it's great being back.

I decided to give the old books another shot. It's surprising how much I remember and how much has just slipped out of reach.

It's trying, but fun figuring all these old things out. It's like meeting old friends again, exactly like being back on PF!
