    Only??
    One of my two besties is very academic but I don't think museums are his thing.
    Libraries however... Back in college he would trick our whole crew to chill in the library that it became our hangout for the final 2 years :getmecoat: (I was intrested in the computers so it was a win win tbh)
    It sounds great! so you´re from the UK?

    that's interesting, what stage are u at in your education?
    That´s a very good question, tbh. It´s a very very long story..I already completed my High-School but Im trying to apply to Oxford University... That´s the reason why I came to this site.
    There are many other factors that are giving me a hard time, though :/

    I have friends who I almost exclusively talk to about either politics or history. But we do tend to drink in a pub when discussing that, although I'm always up for a trip to the Imperial War Museum.

    I'd say my uni course friends are pretty much academic only friends, all we ever talk about is uni and I don't see them outside of uni. This isn't by choice so much as me just being a social moron and awkward as ****.

    Of all the qualities I look for in a friend, being 'academic' is near the bottom of the list.

    I mean, who would meet someone, hit it off and then, when the person asks about meeting up again sometime, go, "Sorry, I only accept friends with degree-level qualifications or above"? :laugh:

    Well of course no one would do that :laugh:

    But I wish I had more academically minded friends, and more specifically "maths minded" friends, I'd probably be more driven to learn more advanced things and I'd be a lot better at it than I currently am :closedeyes:
