Thanks Mal. I agree with your post 100%. I'm of the mind set that as long as I love what I do, money comes second. All I want out of a career is to enjoy it to the fullest and earn enough to live comfortably with a family. I'm not looking for a fancy car or a mansion or any of that rich bullshit, I just want to get out of debt and stay out of it while living comfortably.

No, that's forensics. Sometimes the Forensics team will come up with a theory of what happened in a crime based on the evidence they collect from the crime scene. But generally speaking psychology is not applied. The forensics team might include how a crime happened in their report, but they will never say why it happened (I actually had to play the role of a forensics team member in a mock trial for my intro to criminology class based on an actual murder my teacher investigated when he was a criminologist).
But either way its kael's call. I like space too. If you want to be a rocket scientist, then go for it.
Its your life. No one should decide it for you.
You can ask for advice, but you must make the decision.
Thing is, I never asked for his "advice". I answered s_d's question about the switch in majors (which I haven't made official yet in school) and answered some question from nlb (can't remember off hand). Animefan came in and asked how long I had left, I answered and he decided to throw in his speech about finishing because I'm so close. Even though logically I'll still have longer to go with Psychology and it's a waste of money now. The money I've spent already towards my degree isn't being wasted, as the Gen Eds I've taken apply to physics as well, as it's a part of the same school.
