    I just finished my 2nd year at uni and love all my housemates, we are all doing 4 year courses and are planning to live together for the last 2 years as well, there are 7 of them and I know we will be friends for life. I also have maybe 3 good friends on my course, but we don't see each other much outside of lectures. At home I only have 3 friends, and again we don't see each other much. All my housemates are planning holidays and trips or socializing several times a weak and I just can't do that. I was very timid during school and found it difficult to talk to people, and now I don't want to go home because I know I will be spending a lot of time on my own. What do I do? Maybe there is no answer, and i'm just ranting.
