Hello, and welcome to the World of Physics. Considering this is my first post, I feel it necessary to describe myself a little. First and foremost, I'm a huge fan of gaming, so a majority of my posts will likely discuss their insane simulations of physics. In addition, I'm a Boy Scout, currently working towards my eagle rank. I'm great with technology, and took several classes in programming over the course of my high school career. In the future, I hope to study programming further, as well as game design, and I would ideally like to break my way into the video game industry. For a slightly more realistic career choice, I simply want to be a computer programmer. This is part of the reason I'm taking Physics C this year. Especially in the case of game design, understanding physics allows for the creation of much more realistic animations and events. On the other hand, I also really like learning how a lot of stuff works. This year, I hope to learn much more about physics on the quantum level, as I find the lack of decisive data on the field interesting. Aside from that, I have no idea what to expect from this class, so I guess I'm excited simply to see what it holds. Well, that's the end of that. If you managed to sit through that entire wall of text, you have my utmost respect. Take care, and you'll be hearing from me again soon.

Hi! So, I'm a PhysicsC student, I'll just be going by OcktoByte. I like working with computers, and playing games. Eventually, I'd like to go to college for Computer Science. I'm taking Physics because I enjoyed APPhysics last year, and the other options didn't really appeal to me. I hope that I'll be able to learn and become more comfortable with more difficult physics, and I'm excited to see how what we learn can be applied. So far, I feel most anxious about the difficulty of the class. I've heard it from others, and I knew going into it that the class would be tough, but I'm sure I'll get through it fine. Thanks for reading, and I'll be back in the following weeks to take a look at some video game physics!
