I caution against turning hobbies into jobs. But when you take something you enjoy and turn it into a job, manytimes you will not enjoy that down the road. Just some food for thought. I'm not sayin do something you hate. Obviously find a job you enjoy, but you still need to have a something you enjoy away from work.

QFT. 8 tabling totally sucked all joy out of poker for me. Got to where I hate playing, although I still enjoy thinking about the game abstractly. It's a damn shame, because I made good money at it. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

physics is great because it's got all the analytical and reasoning of mathematics plus a bunch of cool real world applications and discoveries!
