This is exactly the thing I hate to see. People getting so absorbed into ret that they start slipping away from real life goals.
Anything in real life is infinitely more important than ret, and there's no questioning that at all.
Once you start slipping away from real life and putting lots of time into ret, it's really easy to get fully sucked in and then start having things in your real life go awry.
I encourage anyone getting close to this point to take a break/just leave. Please don't get sucked in and have it take away from your real life.
That's the one thing that I just can't stand. You should not be killing grades/parts of your life just to be here. It will never be worth it in the long run.
To be perfectly honest, it's probably good that you are no longer here. I hope no one else here is sacrificing any real life responsibility for ret.
In any case, it's not worth it under any circumstance.
