    Are you even a student yet?

    One thing I really can't stand is people on here, who haven't even been to university yet, telling current and former students that their opinions about university life are incorrect. As if you would know any better.
    Haha, me too. Good post.

    Well right now I'm sitting in my university house, on my own, supposed to be working but I can't find the motivation for it. I'm going home for the holidays on Monday.

    Everyone else has gone home and there is no one to go out with. As much as I'd love to be doing something fun right now, there's nothing to do.

    Why are you on TSR instead of working or being out on a Saturday evening?

    Lol, it's okay. Not just talking about this thread, so it still stands. I'm sure you've seen it too.

    I swear it's better to go out on the weekdays, that's when the student nights are no? That's what I thought, anyway. I don't know anyone in my year who goes out on saturday? Yes but I'm not on TSR daily for ages! I used to be and then uni changed it so much! Also, i'm at home and none of my friends are here

    Possibly, going out is an alien concept to me these days.

    Well how come you aren't with friends/halls-mates if you're not going out?

    First year at uni, i was a regular visitor to TSR, i happen to have a lot of free time for strolling and posting. However, ever since my second year has started, i think this is probably the first night im in a mood to spend time here.

    but im talking about tsr?
    ...haha wow I don't do facepalming in real life often but there we go.

    I know thestudentroom has 14 letters there and facebook only has 8 but it doesn't take much longer to get onto TSR then facebook especially if you've got em both bookmarked. They're both social sites, just different types. Like that guy said, you can ask the exact same question to anyone spending a reasonable amount of time on facebook. Hell sitting there "liking" random comments is less useful then posting your actual opinions on things to your peers.

    But yeah I have time, this may surprise you but people don't party 24/7, 7 days a week, 365 days for 3 years when at Uni. People have bedrooms, they may watch TV sometimes, they might have a laptop and go on facebook/TSR. Obviously the amount depends on the person and how extrovert/interoverted they are.

    Unless you're looking for some sort of "Yeah we got time cos we got no friends n no life lolz" response?...if so..you just got it.

    Apologies, 10 hr shift surrounded by humans who I'm surprised know how to breath by themselves...my patience for semi-foolish questions wears thin..

    I'm in my first year of uni so I don't have extreme work load, just a little more than my year in A2.

    I'm always working on the desk so the computer is always on for music and browsing through TSR.

    While you're eating is an obvious time to go on TSR. Eating is pretty boring tbh. I watch TV or go on the computer when I eat.

    Easy, I don't see my friends all the time because they are only interested in drinking the majority of the time and quite honestly I can't be arsed with it.

    I don't hang out with the people in halls because we just get on with our own thing. The boys do their own thing. And the girls hang out with each other but I was late in moving in this flat (I moved flats) so their friendships were already sorted. They did invite me out but surprise surprise all they wanted to do was drink, so I decided I couldn't be arsed with them either.

    I do do work, but TSR is terrible for making one procrastinate :p:
