    I am in my first year at uni and have moved away from
    all my friends etc .... The difference is is that I bought my child with me I am young though at 20 and my child is 3 ( feel free to have your opinions) but wen to private boarding school and have worked since finishing my a levels.
    I was always going to go to uni because It is the norm where I come from.
    I enjoy being at uni and the life that comes with it but know I am missing out on huge experiences that I will never get to have which is really deprssing !
    I am young (not free) but single and wonder how people would react to me having a child at such a young age and also how to go about making more friends
    in my lectures there are the jocks and girls that aren't really like me, I feel a little better than them and don't feel challenged by them they're not girly like ne actually there aree only 4 girls ( great!) and the rest are boys who are only content in judging me that I'm not hotter as the people they hang around with. ( they don't say it but I know they are thinking it) well next year our lectures sort of get bigger so I'm hoping that there might be more people that are like me! but I am going to go to societys next term but don't want to turn up like an absolute loser on my own.

    Also Im worried about what any new possible friends will think to me having a child and if they would still be my friend....!!!

    I really want to make the most of uni and any help would be apprieciated!


    I am pretty sure it won't affect much others' opinion of you , but I am sure you already know that uni halls don't offer exactly the atmosphere a young child would need.
    That leads to finding private accommodation which limits to a certain extent your social life in the first year.

    F*** the haters. you do what you think is best. if them girls arnt good enough for you, then your better off working by yourself and youve always got your kid. it'll always love you so you dont really got much to worry about
