    Hi guys.

    Honestly, just wanna seek some comfort from this forum. Basically I withdrew from Imperial college, and now I am back in college, working on my ps to get myself into a good uni next year. Well, I live with my college mates who are alr in uni, and somehow I really feel sort of inferior that they are in uni and I am not. They seem to have so much fun and am enjoying themselves while I am just here wasting time and money. I am an international student, so the only way I can stay here is to study college again. Really hope this academic year passes as fast as possible.

    Just concentrate on what you're doing. In life people will always be ahead of you, at the same place or behind you; there's no point worrying about where you are in comparison to others. On a logical level, you know that you're not inferior simply because your friends are in university and you are not. If that was the case, all the people who are not in university or who have never been to university, would be inferior and obviously that's not the case.

    I have a deffered offer from Imperial - so I'm on a gap year.

    All my friends are at university already and tbh, I'm jealous of them, I really cant wait to finally go there.
