I'm just interested in what everyone in college/uni is studying right now and how you deal with schoolwork and Ana at the same time.

I'm a communications major because I couldn't decide on anything else. For me it can be hard to concentrate on studying when I'm so hungry so I like to eat little things while studying.

I am majoring in molecular and cellular biology and minoring in Studio Art and American Sign Language. Usually I only eat if I feel that I am incapable of focusing when I'm studying or in class. I've always been very studious so I don't have many issues associated with my ED, at least not academically. I'm taking 20 credit hours next semester and am incredibly involved so I think my busy schedule helps keep me in check. I will admit that I am constantly exhausted, especially after a long day of classes or work. Sometimes I do wonder if I could do better if I was healthier.

Chemical Engineering. I totally feel you about eating a little something to stay focused. I'm trying to drop as many pounds as possible before fall classes start and I have to up my calorie intake to study and such.

I'm addicted to studying ;) I already have an MA in Film Studies, but as that was kind of a useless (but fun!) degree, I'm back doing a BA in Psychology and Neuroscience and I hope to go on to do an MA in Speech Pathology.  In the meantime, I'm an ESL teacher :)

Right now I am an undergraduate studying philosophy (last year) and am currently studying for LSAT's with hopes of getting into law school. If that doesn't happen, my backup plan is to get a masters degree in counseling psychology.

I'm in law school currently. If you ever want to talk about it, let me know.

 

Edit: Also, it will happen, as long as you're willing to sell your soul and take on twice the amount of debt you otherwise would have.

A BS in Biology with a minor in psychology.

I am looking to become a psychiatrist  (I actually want to specialize in ED and trauma)

BUT, if i dont get accepted to med school then I want to pursue research in the human immune system (regarding viruses/bacteria/infectious diseases)

And I am currently in my 3rd year and I am a honor student.

I'm an undergrad studying anthropology with a minor in ancient history. I want to be an archaeologist, still deciding on what time period. I love Roman Britain but I'm also interested in Alexander the Great since he basically created the largest empire in the ancient world.

I'm doing my undergrad in mathematics and physics. I'm taking 21 hours this semester and I like the work load because it keeps me distracted from food. I do get really tired and dizzy sometimes, but I spend most of the day at school sitting down with small amounts of walking so its not bad.

Creative Writing and Women & Gender Studies. I feel like the worse my ED gets, the more I write about people disappearing or dying, which is a shame, because writing should be an escape. I also feel like such a hypocrite in my gender studies classes. oops.
