12 years. And was around it before that...more than half of your life. Every summer, every winter...and then the whole year. More and more time is spent on it and a bunch of yours and parents money and time. It's what your going to do with your life in the future and what you are doing now. It will be your career, and it is your life. Not stopping. No matter what it means. Can't.
Is this reasonable, or is it completely irrational?
