Hi everyone. I'm seeking advice from you lovely people because you seem pretty clever and switched on. Any advice you can offer me is greatly appreciated :). Basicly the synopsis of my problem is that im experiencing a conflict between my passions for music and my Physics studies at university (which I love too). Here's a a bit of a rundown (sorry if it's lengthy..) - I'm 18 now, and I finished High School late last year. I scored disappointingly, but I got into one of my middle preferences, studying Applied Physics / Electrical Engineering at a good university and I have to admit I am quite content with teaching quality, facilities and student life. I have always been very easily distracted though. I consider myself to be reasonably clever and past experience has shown that if I do manage to study, my hard work does bare fruit - which is good news. However, I simply cannot concentrate; I cannot focus, and wherever I am and whatever I'm doing, all I can think about is music. Ever since I was 11 years old I have had this insatiable appetite for electronic music. I listen to it whenever I can, and if I can't, I have it running through my mind making it hard for me to concentrate. Every waking moment I can spare is spent playing the piano, writing music on the computer or playing with my DJ gear. This is eating up several hours a day and sometimes I run late for university and miss lectures which gets me into serious trouble. Have any of you ever had trouble focusing on your studies due to other passions or hobbies you've had? How did you deal with this conflict?
