    I feel like i've gone to the wrong uni, i have an abundance of friends but no one i really click with, and never found a boy i've really liked there.

    Going into my last year, i realise this isn't the place for me, there's nothing creative and now i'm scared i've missed my opportunities for meeting like-minded people as i leave uni.

    I'm hoping to do a masters at goldsmiths after i go travelling.

    I'm so upset and down about this…please help/worrying so much about my future?

    I don't know you but it does seem as if you are having a bit of a downer and perhaps looking at this in a one-sided way?

    Sounds like there's room for improvement/things could have gone differently, but compared to many you're doing ok!

    If I were you I'd take this moment to really reflect on where you're at, where you wish to be, and how to get there

    The meaning of life is to give your life a meaning

    I feel you :/

    I don't think there's a purpose in life. That makes it sad but also liberating. I do things that I find fulfilling and enjoyable instead of searching for some ultimate, cosmic meaning.

    Life is what you make of it, no one truly knows what the hell we are doing here.

    I'd say live by this principle, it was a principle told by Benjamin Graham (a professor of Warren Buffett).

    Graham said that he wished every day to do something foolish, something creative, and something generous.
