Just a question. It sometimes feels like I'm the only one that shuts themselves in a room for 2-3 hours and studies for one class, in my case it was G-Chem I, now I'm preparing myself for the upcoming semester, Calc I (took in HS-don't ask why I'm taking it again), G chem II, and Bio I 12 credits is the total for the upcoming year, I would take history but I'll take it in the summer later...
ps history-who cares :sleep:

I study a lot, too. I'm an admitted nerd and not ashamed of it, lol. None of my roommates are really doing "challenging" majors and don't really care very much about their GPA's, so rarely study... they make me feel like the worlds hugest dork. BUt what can we do..? ;)

Assuming you still only study 2-3 hours when you are a Junior, you will have to turn in your nerd hat for one of two others: Genius or Burnt Out Premed. Only one of those gets accepted.

i typically study 8-10 hours a day and i enjoy every moment of it. no shame on that. maybe this kind of thing is abnormal in non-academic ambience but studying this much is nothing in college.

just remember that being "norm" is defined by the prevalent thoughts of the society, not by some absolute truth.

thus being norm by the society's standard does not mean anything. Actually some of the current norm is beyond the realm of being ludicrous; maneuvering one's intoxicated body in usually cramped and loud area = fun??? taking harmful chemicals so one can intentionally make oneself semi-unconscious = fun???????

so if you like studying, then that is the end of it. don't let some absurd societal trends dictate your life.
