(Newser) – Every so often, a child star decides to take a break from acting and head to college—then reality sets in, and Emma Watson is the latest casualty. Though she loves Brown and also loves “studying pretty much more than anything,” she’s “decided to take a bit of time off,” she writes on her website. She’ll finish her work on Harry Potter and “focus on my other professional and acting projects,” but, she assures us, she “will still be working towards my degree … it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought.” At least she’ll always have the memories: Click to relive the awful first days, the Harvard students stalking her, the annoying dad who posted her photo on Twitter
