    So I'm finally beginning to make progress with my personal life, but I'm worried that it'll disturb my studies/work. It's like I focus way too intense on one aspect of my life (for the past four years, it's been my studies), and neglect the rest. But now guys are starting to talk to me, and I reconnected with my best friend who I haven't seen in years, which is nice. Problem is, it's been so long since I've had people actually care about me, that this revival is nothing short of overwhelming. It's like an intense happiness that I feel has the potential to be interfering with my work...

    Any advice? I'd rather find the "balance" now because I don't want this to be a problem when I'm married with family responsibilities.

    if it makes you happy, don't shut it out, it will in fact give you something to work for. if you are still worried, just go with the flow, things have a way of unravelling themselves. if you're very studious, chances are you are already good with your work and a bit of socialising won't hurt anyone. it will simply make you feel better and have fun

    Just remember that if somebody puts you down for being too studious, ignore them.
