Question about 1993 Subaru Impreza
The light bulb is the load in the circuit. if the 12v. side of the circuit was shorted to ground. it would blow the fuse. the ground side of the circuit is supposed to touch ground. so the only way for a bulb have an early failure is at the bulb its self. some bulbs get so hot during operation that the oils from your skin transferred during installation will actually damage the bulb. another cause of over heating can be, loose or corroded pins in the bulb socket. this adds extra resistance to the circuit, which means more heat. i suggest when you replace the bulb the next time use a paper towel to handle the bulb with. ensuring no oil from your skin will come in contact with the bulb.
