Hello. So I have posted once, and I decided what I want to do kinda. I am going to spend the next year really learning the industry I am in (mortgages) and anatomy (because I am into weight lifting) and economics (because that is easy for me) and because honestly, I don't have enough money to afford going back to school right now. In all honesty, I don't think I will end up working in any field except banking, but it does not interest me the way science does. So, since I don't particularly care about my degree, I just want to learn, which is better for me based on the following: 1) I don't really know math well, because I have not had to apply it at all so I forgot it. When I took calculus and statistics, I got A's in both (two levels of each). Math was usually pretty easy for me. However I don't really care about being able to calculate most things, I am interested in learning for the conceptual part (why stuff happens rather than the exact formula of calculating it). I understand I need the math to understand the concepts, but I do not need it to be super math intensive. 2) I will be doing this part time, but here are the concepts/subjects I am looking to learn (which, basically, is everything). I know the terms for most of these subjects, but I am just going to write what I want to learn specifically so maybe you can understand exactly what I want to learn: Why/how atoms bond, how electricity and other forms of energy work, how light works (like why magnifying glasses and microscopes work and how lightwaves work), how sound works, classical physics topics like leverage, friction, etc, I guess a little bit about string theory, why explosions happen...I realize what I am saying is kinda confusing, but the reason I want to study physics and/or chemistry is not so I can sit down and say "well here is the formula to make this happen", but like I want to look at the things around me and understand what is going on. When I watch TV I want to understand why I am seeing what I am seeing that, when I am driving my car I want to understand what is moving it, etc. So, which is the right path for me, based on my (admittedly ridiculous) learning goals?
