Agh, physics gives me nightmares from doing it in high-school and by doing I mean scrapping through. Now I see it pop up in computers and I can only think of falling asleep.


#2809

Same!! I’m glad I never ended up in game development because that seems riddled with physics.

Now I can just forget it lol


#2810

Yup. Physics gave me PTSD. Not kidding.


#2811

Lol, in my high-school our physics teacher read marks from highest to lowest and it was always a joy having mine last.


#2812

You are a lucky individual.


#2813

You’ll get there too! Just gotta survive those classes :sweat_smile:


#2814

I should feel insulted none of you like Physics, haha. I’m into Space Physics myself, and the Maths is my least favourite part aside from the coding. Do not like coding.


#2815

Oh, he did that? My teacher would literally throw the papers into our faces and be like:
This was the easiest paper that could ever be made and ya’ll have failed. Congrats, kiddos.


#2816

Yes, yes, yes! Astrophysics, I’m hoping you mean?


#2817

Are you secretly my sister?? She’s an astrophysicist who hates coding…or maybe that’s just a common theme lol

I love space! But I’m not smart enough for the physics of it.


#2818

I used to binge Youtube videos related to astrology, it’s really fascinating.


#2819

@bidiyakdamian astrophysics and space physics are slightly different courses - astro tends to focus on starts and the galaxy as a whole but space physics tends to focus more on planets and the atmosphere of the Earth

@its_artemis_actually I think it is fairly common, though I do know some astro folks who do like coding - they mostly started doing it from an earlier age though and didn’t get it dumped on them to figure out from university level

@A_us_tin isn’t astrology quite different to astronomy?


#2820

Yip, definitely meant astronomy.


#2821

That probably does make a huge difference! Never really thought about it before


#2822

Oh, i have just started posting my story, so I am trying to be patient.
I have four parts ready and I am currently working on the fifth. I have less than 100 reads! Finding more people to read it has truly been a struggle.


#2823

Relatable, I google ways and just read articles that work for the one in one millions.


#2824

The biggest thing to remember is that reads take time :slight_smile: there are millions of books here and it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.

I keep hearing that the first 1000 reads is the hardest


#2825

I’m glad to see I’m among like minded nerds who like space :stuck_out_tongue:


#2826

Space has been my favourite thing since I was a kid, I love that I’m doing a degree in it (well, I’m literally weeks away from finishing now, had all my lectures, just waiting for exams…)

yet here I am writing fantasy instead, haha. I love sci-fi but I have to fact check everything and I find it a little more frustrating because I know things, lmao


#2827

That’s super awesome that you’re doing a degree in something you love.

I’m in the process of writing some fantasy too (as a departure from my usual sci fi and space opera) what’s your story about?
