    When I was studying, I used to party more vs When I studied, I used to party more.

    Hi. I want to ask you a question. Which sentence sounds better?
    When I was studying, I used to party more.
    When I studied, I used to party more.
    In my opinion the second sentence is more appropriate, but I don't know, if I'm right.

    Re: When I was studying, I used to party more vs When I studied, I used to party more

    I find the first more natural. In real life, I'd say "When I was a student, I partied more (than I do now)".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Can you glance at this example?
    When my hair was going bald, I used to buy special pills. What about this sentence? In the previous one, the first part of the sentence was possible to modify, but I don't think that it is here.
