    What do you normally like doing- interests, hobbies etc? You could look into whether there's any groups locally that are into the same.

    Wow, brave. Good luck with that.
    Haha, thank you! I'm also going to be (hopefully) working at Download Festival this summer! My summer's going to be awesome

    Surely there must be something that you can do/take part in at Uni such as getting involved in a social group like you gf is. Sitting around and feeling sorry for yourself won't make things better for you. :cool:

    On another subject, how ironic you need a crb check to work in an enviroment full of criminals :confused:
    Is it so you don't smuggle in drugs mobiles or massive jars of gherkins that are then used for illegal activities?

    but surely a CRB check is a check on any criminal record you may have? and you really dont need any previous record to be able to smuggle anything

    I suppose convicted and imprisoned criminals are more likely to have criminal friends with convictions, but you're right, someone without convictions and a clean CRB check could still bring in drugs, guns etc.
    Same is true of teachers, social workers etc-I suppose the idea is that it cuts down on some possible crime and protects some people some of the timem.
    The trouble is the way things have been going the whole population is going to need a crb check, so before you walk past a chip shop y9ou have to have a crb check because there might be some kids in there buying chips.

    It's not just about "passing the time" really, is it. Are you happy with no friends? Because surely you don't want to spend the rest of your life without any friends.. so your priority should be to go out and meet new people, rather than just to pass the time. Obviously anything you do, such as getting a job or volunteering, will lead to you meeting people- but you have to keep an open mind and be prepared to make an effort.
