Hello everybody. I am brand new to the forum, and to physics, so please forgive me if I am a total noob, or if I do not adhere to a guideline. Quick background about who I am so you know where I am coming from: I am a 22 year old licensed personal banker living in queens working in manhattan. I graduated with a BBA in economics from Temple University. I will soon be a loan officer assistant making somewhere between $100k-$130k. My mom is in finance, and to me it is common sense. Some people are more naturally inclined to some subjects (duh) and for me it is finance/economics. I know a lot, it is common sense to me, and I know a lot of people in the industry, and I am #1 at my bank. I am not interested in Physics for any sort of money at all, as I do not think Physics is the road to riches. I am just extremely, extremely curious. WHen I was young my mom would call me the question man. I always ask why, why, why, for anything and everything. Usually, the answers ot my questions are physics related. I want to know how everything works. Everything. I also have a way over active frontal lobe. It is hard for me to concentrate on one subject, because I want to learn 100, and then I try to learn all 100 at once and wind up learning nothing. So one way or another I will learn about this at some point in my life (I may wind up postponing it for a few years to earn my MBA and CFA, but I will get to it soon). And if I somehow took it all the way to the PhD level later in life I could use that for a hedge fund. So, with this quick summary, here are my options: 1) Accept I can't learn everything, realize that specializing in one thing will get me the furthest, and just casually read physics in my free time 2) Learn as much as I can with a lot of my free time. This makes the most sense to me because it is cheap and I have my own schedule. Unfortunately, I won't have a lab setting and if I am making my own schedule, without structure, I may not know where to start and end up trying to learn too many things at once like I previously said, and learn nothing. 3) Take part time classes. Could be a lot to handle, esp with a full time job, and costs a lot of money which might be a "waste" since I won't actually be using it for a career, just for knowledge...paying for the education, not the degree. Also, would it be possible to get a BS or BA in physics without having to retake english, and all those other core classes I already took to get my econ degree? 4) Completely stop what I am doing, drop my job and go full-fledged into physics. Probably not the best idea since I will be way behind my peers at this point I know there are other options but I have to run, just posting a quick thought. Anybody with advice, I greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
