    Surely i can't be the only uni student who is dreading the 3 month summer break?

    I like my uni city, love my halls, have plenty of friends and a part time job and knowing i'll have to wave goodbye to all this in a few weeks is really upsetting me As in, physically breaking down and crying (sometimes in front of people).

    All of my friends are really excited to see their friends and family, spend time with their boy/girlfriend, go on holiday, start a summer job or a placement etc etc but i have **** all to go back to. No friends, a family that won't speak to me, few job opportunities and a town with very little for me to do on my own. I haven't gone home once since i moved in to halls of residence and i don't miss it in the slightest.

    Whilst i have a lot of friends here i can't see us speaking much over the holidays because i'm not particularly close to any of them and they'll have better things to do with their time. I've always been a quiet/shy person but not having anyone to talk to for 3 months will make things so much worse.

    Wtf can i do here?
    Although you're post did make me feel sad, i suggest you just man up and go home. Things could always be a lot worse, at least you have somewhere to stay - at home. Its only 3 months, worst case scenario is you're bored for every single day and spend the entire 3 months in the house being bored. Hardly life or death. I'd had to sort of do this for 3 months + a whole year, so 15 months. I have 3 more left.. i wont lie it is pretty ****. But force yourself to be positive about it. Its the summer, so atleast its not going to be gloomy.. perhaps you can set yourself little goals, like before september comes lose --- amount of weight, or bulk up or go for a run twice a week or whatever. Maybe save up so you have more to spend next year in uni. Good Luck. I'm also counting down the days till Sept..
