    I can't do the reading, I don't understand most of it and it takes me about 15 mins to decipher a single paragraph like the one below. I like the content of the lectures but academic writing is so complicated

    "For want of an established label let me propose as the nucleus to which I giveprominence the notions of projective semantics and, derivatively, of semanticprojection. Moreover, since the expression "semantic meaning" has been utterlytrivialized, I shall say, more pointedly, semantic import. In a nutshell, the semanticimport of words entails that ( 1) what is not named largely remains unnoticed or, inany event, impervious to cognitive development; and that, (2) the naming choice(selecting a given word within a given semantic field) involves a far-reaching interpretiveprojection. All told, then, projective semantics brings to the fore both theconstraints and the pathways that any given natural language imposes upon andaffords to our perceiving, thinking, and knowing. But let us proceed orderly."
    Wtf?? What course is that? Are all your books like this or is it just this one module that has a book like this?

    Like the title suggests, mention your biggest problem at uni so far. You could be 1st years,2nd or even 3rd.


    i am currently 2nd year and my biggest issue/problem is friends. Especially with the course I am taking, there a little..nerdy? ! I would class them as friends but not best friends to hand out over the weekend or go pub etc. Still wondering if I will find anyone that has similar interests to me at my Uni or if I just need to grind through 2 more years?
    I'm a 2nd year law student and my biggest issue right now is....EXAMS !!

    There is so much to do with so little time !!!

    Have you looked into starting your own society? Depends on the uni but you wont need more than 10 people to do so i recon. Have you spoken to your flatmates about the problems you ve experienced with them or see if you can swap halls with someone?
    Sorry, I only just saw this. It's too much effort to change halls, I just ignore them and leave my room to spend time at the library or out most of the time. Semester two will fly by then I'm gone!

    Getting more involved at uni.

    Also, passing my modules! I'm having issues with 2 in particular, the rest are the standard that I want them to be.
    Oh well, still time left!

    Of the 10 Fridays I have in this term, I have deadlines on 7 of them. In several cases, I have more than one deadline.

    People tell stories about final year, but you don't really believe it until you get there.

    Not many friends at uni.

    But I have too many coursework deadlines to be making friends

    The struggle is real

    Lack of motivation, health, lack of friends, feeling guilty for relaxing, boring lecturers when the subject is my passion, classes so big lecturers don't know you well, lack of anyone to actually be passionate about my course with. Not drinking or clubbing at uni doesn't work and it's not going to change on my part.

    Motivation. Im remembering all the reasons why I enjoyed work and hated school. Really want to get my 3 year B-Eng but strongly considering finishing my HNC and going no further, at least for a few years.

    Because I don't drink or go clubbing it's not what I do for fun. I should add I'm a mature student of 24 but I haven't ever drank or been to a club in my life... My uni was supposedly really good for non-drinkers don't fall for that line... very isolated from my mature flatmates in halls as I don't drink... we literally do nothing together one of them has moved, another will be moving and a third out of the 5 of us might go too. Honestly I wish I could say it will be fine... but I read all the posts on here saying it would and it's just not true at my Manchester Uni no one seems to do anything but drink and go clubbing.....

    I've been there forever owing to studying part-time and then also taking numerous depression induced breaks, and I just can't be arsed anymore. Going back fills me with dread. The tutors I liked have also been replaced with crap ones. I've only a few more modules to go, but I really dunno.

    I'm worried about the assignments that I have handed in and how I have a lack of love life at uni. My confidence has always been naturally low but I'm relatively happy with my housemates. And finding suitable placements and money issues

    I am a 2nd year law student and my biggest problem is self doubt.

    i am doubting my choice over a legal career and wondering if i should switch paths once I graduate. i was naive to what was involved with a legal career and never really signed up for a desk job.

    i love law, but not the lawyer aspect ....
