Pain_4528 1 / 1 Apr 27, 2021 #1my interest in physicsSo it all started on the day I graduated to 9th grade.One of my friends Tanvir, showed me a science-related magazine named 'BigganChinta' I was turning pages and suddenly my eyes just stucked on a title which was like 'Einstein's theory suggests that time travel is possible? '.So one of the reasons for my that much excitement was I used to watch lots of science fictions animes and after seeing there time travel like stuffs I was just totally shocked cause I always wondered if it really would ever be possible in reality. Then I read the whole magazine and found lots of other things like black hole, entanglement,wormhole etc .Basically, it turned my whole interest in physics.Then I decided to understand this in most meinstrem way.So first I learned some of the basic stuffs like vectors, kinematics and Newtonian mechanics from a book named university physics and took some help from khan academy. Then I started relativity and then my whole intuation about the nature just changed.After studying more academically about this topics,I understand it (time travel) is not possible in reality yet but it's not the main issue here, I started from understanding a thing that was a kind of fairy tails for me but it leads me to something that was as much mysterious than any kind of magic or fairy tails. I was just surprised knowing how our nature works so beautifully and we really don't know much about it yet.At the beginning I used to watch podcasts of physicists like Susskind, Michio kaku, sean Carroll etc. I didn't understand anything they were talking about but I wanted to know everything.I wanted to know what is preventing us to solve these problems. Then I asked one of my college teachers to help me out studying quantum mechanics.He told me,''First complete the basics of classical mechanics, E&M and some mathematical concepts ,otherwise, it will be a rush.'' So i listen to him .He gave me some useful materials to warm up and it took me about 7-8 months to clear all the basics then I started QM from Griffith's quantum mechanics book and followed QM 1 course provided by mitocw. These really helped me out quite nicely.As i read more I get more curious about what is next? what is next? what we are not able to solve yet? why can't we able to make a unified theory? So I continued and learned how much i could and still doing.But I was not that much matured about these topics back then and my thoughts were so naive but as time goes I started to understand and realize things more academically.At that moment I already decided to do my major in physics and then research after taking my PhD .I know research is not all about string theory and these 'pop science' like stuffs,there are more awesome things to do but I really enjoy thinking about them and I dunno what topic I'll end up with but one thing for sure I'll never lose my hope and do whatever it takes to be a Theoretical Physicist.Also, I'm such serious about physics is like I can't even think spending my whole life doing something else.I just enjoy doing physics more than anything.It's kinda some types of feeling for me. Don't know how to explain it!But nevertheless Its all thanks to that magazine and my friend for giving me that. For that thing now I know what I'm passionate about ,what I am going to do in future hopefully.
