If you have a taste for something other than just pure math and mathematical physics, I would strongly recommend pursuing them. Pure math and physics are great and fun to learn, but you're much more likely to be able to find work as an applied mathematician or statistician. Further, if you're primarily interested in research, there are many places besides just schools that will pay you to do research in these fields. This is simply not true of pure math.
