Recently, I've gotten into a kind of crisis mode. I am a third year undergraduate majoring in physics. Last semester, I've overloaded myself with graduate courses and dragged through it with good marks at the end. My social life was pretty much non-existent. I slowly realized that I cannot continue this pattern for long (that's just not good for my mental health). This semester, I am only taking only one graduate course -- a second QFT course. However, as soon as I started to spend more time socializing with my friends, I realized a huge problem: I can no longer dedicate enough time for my classes and am falling behind in my graduate course. The whole idea was scary, and once I get into grad school, it will only get worse. I am no longer certain whether not I am willing to sacrifice the many interesting aspects of life to pursue a life of isolation and intense dedication (as a high energy theorist). I have always had to urge to study the most fundamental aspects of reality, but is it possible to balance social life with physics and still be a good theorist (I am no genius and usually do not understand ideas in like seconds)?
