    I just cant wait to leave May seems like a lifetime away.

    I just don't seem to be able to work or concentrate at college and I cant wait to come home at the end of the day.

    Any tips ?

    Any tips ?

    Yep don't worry about what others think of you. Focus on yourself and your studies. If you have the mentality where you're "fed up" or "can't work", you're already putting yourself down before you've even started. So think positive.

    I used to be a person who scoffed at 'timetables' and 'plans' and 'to-do lists', but try one. If you have a goal for the end of the month or even the next day, it will help you stay in the present and remain focussed. It'll make you feel better if you complete a thing at the end of the day.

    Also, it's scary, but make some more friends. I found my self-esteem rise when I made some, even if they aren't 'deep' friends, having someone laugh at a dumb joke makes you feel welcome and you might even want to come into college the next day.

    Only you can find your motivation, though, so try and be positive?

    And maybe if you have negative thoughts, try a doctor/therapist? It's nothing to be ashamed of, your mind needs to go to the gym sometimes, just like your body.

    ***** what others think of you! You should stop comparing yourself to other girls(Thread I saw).
