## Main Question or Discussion Point

i don't know if i can post it here, like this man https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=397395, there's alot of usefull comment for me.

anyway, i'm still don't really know which one i like, either algebraic topology, or algebraic geometry. but i really do like algebra... so i'm planning to take my next year course. for now i've decided go to algebraic "topology"( because i've heard topology is more like analysis, and i love analysis and also, geometry are motivated by low dimensional(more to practical thing i guess which i not preferred) but topology defined based on nature),

but i was wondering, is it ok if i did'nt take

(example: like there's course on magic and latin square, which have nothing to do with algebraic topology, sooner or later, i'll forget about that course)

thanks for the time, and sorry if anything wrong with my english.

**ANY**geometry courses.. or rather is it possible for me to study rigorously in topology without any fundamental on geometry? it's not that i don't want to learn them, just sometimes it's really redundant for me to learn something which is not really usefull for me to pursue something i like,(example: like there's course on magic and latin square, which have nothing to do with algebraic topology, sooner or later, i'll forget about that course)
