... as an adult or when you went off to college and was gonna major in something totally different like Construction management or psychology but decided to switch to physics because you decided at the last minute that physics was more interested. I was an agriculture major , but then switch to physics when I took a physics course on intro to mechanics for an elective. My teacher really open my eyes of how interesting Newton's Laws of motion were.
