Biotechnology is an intense and rewarding field of study that will keep you pretty busy during the semester. It will require hard work to succeed, which is exactly why you need plenty of good quality options for entertainment in order to keep a good balance between work and play. If you fancy games of chance, you can play casino games on your mobile device or on the internet. Add some money if you like. If you don’t like gambling, video games may be more your thing. In order to alleviate the intense isolation you can feel from studying all the time, you can find plenty of multiplayer online games where you can at least have some degree of interaction with real humans, even if a lot of them are teenagers who insult your mom. If you have more misanthropic tendencies, you can also play video games offline. There’s nothing like killing pixels and polygons while learning how to splice genes.
Casino games and video games are not for everyone, although they tend to appeal greatly to the types of personalities that tend to pursue the sciences. Everyone who has seen The Big Bang Theory will know the stereotype of the nerdy, super-intelligent nerd with a research job at a university. That may not be what every student in the sciences is like, but the stereotype exists because it is so common. And you must admit that video games and comic books are pretty cool.
Sometimes a more passive diversion is needed to remove the stress from an overloaded brain. For those occasions, watching movies and television series is a much more relaxing passive entertainment choice. Thankfully there are so many streaming video services that overworked biotechnology students are spoilt for choice to while away their idle hours. And Netflix also makes for a perfect procrastination tool.
