Summary:: I'm seeking guidance to start my journey in the field of physics.

Hi folks,
I hope that I've chosen the right category for this post.
I want to start a serious study on Physics and specially astrophysics. But I don't know where to begin. I wanted to ask your advice for a series of books, lectures, courses or what ever that can help me start and find my way.

Also as an engineer i have some habits regarding to keeping myself up to date and gathering new information, I think the same applies to physicists as well. If yes, please share your habits and routines with me, what sort of sources do you use to keep yourself up to date?

A little bit info about me (to help you to help me with my question :D ):
I'm a software engineer, I feel comfortable with math, I can learn whatever i don't know ( I like math ). I can't attend to any college or university and I'm not looking for a diploma or anything I'm doing it just because I'm passionate about science.

Thanks in advance for your time.

The Feynman Lectures on Physics is available for free online. You should familiarize yourself with their scope and be prepared to read them all at some point in your journey.
