    You have a picture in your profile! I'm pretty short with cropped brown hair (getting it cut next week so I don't know how short it'll be!). I'll be wearing/carrying a red coat and a small black suitcase.

    I'm getting back tomorrow. Home has started to be **** but I wanted to spend a bit longer with free food for a week (which, if I'd gone up at the start of the week, would probably have cost me around £20-£25 for a full week's shop). Bit sadistic to say it, but I can't wait to get away from here and my parents.

    why are you not looking forward to getting back?

    I honestly think that if I wasn't in the medical school and part of the kind of community that we have going on there I wouldn't enjoy uni half as much

    Really?

    I do English Lit and History and I still feel like I'm part of a community even if it is a massive one! Lol!

    I think living in Murano is great - I've made far more friends than I expected too - we're like one huge family in my block (apart from Flat C who are weird =P)

    I can't wait to see them all again and have lots of partytimes

    I'm not overly enthused about heading back to Glasgow because here I've got a huge circle of friends who I know really well and could chat to endlessly. At Uni, having only been there 3 months, I haven't yet met enough people or had the time to grow the sort of friendships that I have back home, so I don't have as much to look forward to up there as I do down here.

    Also, apart from the social aspect of living with so many people your own age, life in halls can be a pain at times.

    I know a few people who feel a bit like you. I love my friends at home as well and I was even a bit worried about seeing them again at Christmas because I felt guilty for not keeping in touch but we all sort of just fell into place again

    What are you studying mister? And which halls are you in?

    I agree with this entirely. I can be quite withdrawn and introverted, so making large groups of friends has been hard, and it seems I've missed the boat in that respect.

    No-one in my seminar groups seems to have any sort of passion for their subject at all, they're so apathetic. It's frustrating. I thought university would be full of like-minded people and on the whole, it hasn't.

    I'm back now. I love the freedom but am not looking forward to the early mornings, cooking, laundry and studying in general. You get used to getting up at 11am and doing nothing all day :p:
