    Im in second year of uni, finding it really boring, slow and I haven't really made as good friends as I would of liked... my fear is that I'll graduate not really having got much out of it, apart from my degree..

    Is this usual.. what do i do, I feel lonely...

    I know what you mean. It's a bit of an anti-climax.

    I've found second year much more exciting that first. Most people got over the whole 'let's go out, get wasted and try to shag any girl that will come our way' and are more willing to have a semi-serious conversation and get to know each other.

    Ironically second year is where I had much more fun, met my girlfriends, met some amazing people! It all depends! Are you putting yourself out there to have fun/do activities etc or hiding in your room?

    My housemate does. She likes to spend all of her time going out and getting attention- I know, I know, it sounds bad, but she'd admit it herself- whereas we're just as happy down the pub or sitting in one another's rooms just spending time with our best friends. Plus, I have a job as well as a degree to handle, and a partner to spend time with: I can't be out every night.

    Apart from anything else, anyway, second year is really the time to knuckle down and work...!

    Second year should really get you thinking about working now, so it's bound to be duller.

    IMO it's been the worst so far, just the black hole after first year antics.
