    Hey people... i just wanted to share what I'm feeling and see what people think of this really...

    I'm a boy who's hopefully going to university in September, I'm doing pretty well at college, am hearing back about a job next week, have a good amount of friends who i socialise with... have recently started going out clubbing and drinking a lot as i turned 18 a few weeks back.. although i have been drinking and clubbing from a young age as i used to live in france where the laws were relaxed lol

    Yet I keep feeling as if my life lacks something. I don't really know how to explain it, but I feel like I'm just getting up and going to college which i find quite boring, and hanging around with people. I don't really know what I'm looking forward to. Earlier this week I was looking forward to the night out which I had on friday, which was fun even if I did embarass myself slightly by acting a bit stupidly, i got a bit of stick for that.

    I really wanted some weed earlier.. something that would relax me and take me out of the world for a bit... I often have a desire to have my mind being taken away from reality and problems

    Does anyone else feel the same way? any help would be appreciated cheers

    if every other area of you life seems satisfied then maybe try finding something to look forward to? travelling in the summer or going to a few festivals? If boredom is your problem then you have plenty of ways to escape that and create a new spark in your life.

    As person before, try travelling or perhaps even taking up a new hobby?

    Luckily for you, university is often about discovering yourself and also new things, so as long as you go to uni with an open mind, you ought to feel more fulfilled. At the moment, you're probably just fed up with the monotony of college, and that's normal. Just keep going until the end and enjoy a little bit of time off before revision and exams start!

    Yes, I feel like that. At least you've got uni to look forward to though. Believe me, the last year of school flies by, so it'll be over before you know it

    I sometimes feel like this and I'm already at uni, a nice spliff feels good but don't rely on it buddy it makes you so lazy and messes with your mind long term

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to magaluf in the summer so that's something else I'm really looking forward to.

    Oh btw to the people who say don't start weed, I have smoked it a few times before, but i don't intend to start it regularly, I just wouldn't mind some once in a while

    cheers

    I feel like this all the time, like u don't know what ur doing anymore, or where you going in life? since starting uni and growing up in general i feel as though i've lost myself, i think about everything differently... sometimes in a bad way, cos its clear my thinking is having a negative effect on me... i too wish i could take my mind away of things esp as i feel as though my life is a mess right now, it not its just me... making a mess of things with and the stress of uni. Since a young ages ive always felt like ive missing something, i still feel like that now, i think i no what it is now... a BF perhaps.... Ino this sounds pathetic, but ive never had anyone close to me, like from the oppostite sex, so maybe thats what missing in my life... someone to love/care for me and vice versa.... gosh i sound sad...

    I'm guessing that you're just feeling a very slight amount of depression which is pretty common. A lot of people probably have moments where they feel down for no particular reason, their life might feel bland even though there's nothing really wrong with it. This could be caused by all sorts of things, maybe just hormones or chemicals in the brain etc.

    But I use the word "depression" in a very vague sense, you are probably nowhere near real depression.

    Anyway, there's not much I can say because you've given very little information about yourself and I don't know what kind of personality you have. I'll take a wild guess, maybe you don't have any particular passion, interest or activity that keeps you going and maybe you haven't come up with any ambitions or goals to aim for. Maybe that's what your life is lacking.

    There's one thing I can say I think I'm pretty sure about: as long as you have friends you actually like, any kind of social life is better than none at all.

    We're all a bit lost in life mate. When you think about it, deep down, life has its boring moments because it is boring! We get up every day, do the same things, live in the same routine with the same people, having the same conversations over and over. There's only so much school work and getting drunk you can do before you just want to say **** it and do something else with your life, and there's nowt wrong with that. Meet some new friends, get interested in new things, take whatever money you have and go travel off somewhere for a few weeks on your own meeting people and just drifting from place to place. Say screw normality and do what YOU want because you only get one shot at life ... make it count!

    dream big, take a risk and go do something you'll never forget

    i get like that every week i'm in uni. i get bored of trying so hard. and just want to do nothing so i can not discuss issues and just live a normal working life. in the long run, degree's will f*ck your head up more than college with its pressure like its doing to me right now. but i've just realised i am re-acting to all the negativity in too much detail and confusion and its really not that complicated. although i would like to go on holiday this summer! weed doesn't help, causes you to feel paranoia and then you'll be unsuccessful and instead of feeling lost...a looser.

    At least there's stuff on the horizon for you, unlike myself.

    This would probably sound stupid but if you actually think about it .. it makes sense ... I'm muslim and yeah and see where u come from .. Whenever I feel like I need direction I just pray to god and straight after I feel in happiness .. I feel content and happy for what I have and happy for where I feel i need to get ...
