since I don't know where to share my story this crap is going here
> was a strange kid, not very much friends, but i liked science
> not very popular kid, since all other kids were interested in sports
> I was not the full nerd guy (pros of being a eastern european I guess)
> since I liked science so much, I went to a special engineering school
> since I was one of the best students in this school I thought "should be easy"
> my grades droped instantly
> girls suddenly became more important(puberty), but also drinking, gaming and lifting(?)
> became "that russian guy" and was actually quite popular
> managed somehow to finish this school and also managed to get in good shape (for a average person)
> I totally lost my intersest in science up to now
> most of the time I am either doing sports, watching movies, taliking to people or play games
> now, 20, in a university studying mechanical engineering and also feel like the stupidest person on campus
> looks like I fail most of my finals
probably nobody gives a fuck, but if somebody does here is a question: how do I get smart again? I would instantly trade my "social" life for it.
You went to college for mechanical engineering?
I got lot's of collegues who studied mechanical engineering and nobody struggled with a job, 2 of them also went to India because their company sent them
I also get sometimes post from some companies, that they need mechanical engineers and want to hire me.
From my side mechanical engineering is not dead at all.
I wonder what you study and also I wonder what you would recomment to study?
Spend more time studying mechanical engineering related materials until you become good at it. It sounds like you lost interest in it because it became harder and you didn't want to increase your efforts. Russia has a history of mechanical marvels, live up to your potential as a European familian.
