    Hard to put this into concrete words so it's a bit of a jumble.

    Just feel like my life is falling into mediocrity and apathy, add to that going into a potentially routine job where I'm stressed all day for a bit of money it just feels so boring right now.

    Also think that it's partially due to me not having an excess of money to splash. Another problem is that I get bored of being in the same place after a while, I'm bored of uni, I'm bored of home. I just wanna go somewhere, stay there for a few weeks then go somewhere else. It just feels like there's no excitement in anything anymore.

    Na, I mean I don't have a lot of money to splash to go on holiday otherwise I'd have done so already. I go party with my friends and while it's fun it gets routine after a while, same places same faces. My plan is to go to major cities next year in the uk at least for a change.

    By Cult I could mean a crazy religious movement or commune join a Far-right/Left minority political group, KKK, espouse some crazy views.
    Become a Scientologist, go live in a Buddhist Monastery on a mountain.

    Do anything, just mix your life up a little.

    Haha no worries yeah coming to think of it its true. Sometimes I don't help myself by staying at home all day but really without money there's hardly anything I can do that isn't a form of 'restricted fun'

    It's a bit of a cycle that I want to break out of.

    Bar the jokes I agree, need to mix my life up. Only problem is that it's hard without money. I guess I need to work or save up for this then and find a personal goal to aim for.

    Try to look at the grander scheme of things.

    No degree = no money = no fun things + no sexy time = stagnation.

    You say you find university boring, then consider where it will get you once you graduate - look at jobs that really interest you and that could be making lots of mulah in investment banking or working for a non-profit such as a homeless charity.

    Think of things you can do that don't require spending money.

    Phone up a friend and make their day - ask how they are (there's always a friend moaning about something on facebook!)

    try to make a new friend maybe through some shared interest?

    If you're in uni, then I'm sure you're plenty busy then phone up someone from your course and socialise, go explore! and you can talk about the course, what you find difficult about what and ideas you have about the future! About travelling the world and maybe what Masters degrees might interest you.

    You have to remember that at a young age you are at the bottom and have to work your way up and things get better if you figure out what interests and how to get there and importantly the connections you make along the way who you might talk to someone in years to come and they will remind you something you did at a party at uni that you completely forgot about!

    Stay positive - work out a plan - go do it!

    Thanks for that. I see it in a different perspective now. Especially the last 2 paragraphs. Kinda gave me an idea on what to do and reminded me of something. Gonna do a life plan. What I want to do. Where I want to be and when I want to be there.

    It's no problem I wish I had looked things in this light when I was younger!

    Just to throw it out there some more in terms of some ideas..

    STA Travel do a great around the world trip so a few months of routine boring low paid work and then you'll be exploring around Asia, which would look great on your CV and increase your cultural awareness and independence and ask friends from school or uni if they want to join you!

    Here's the link http://www.statravel.co.uk/round-the-world-travel.htm

    You could also consider volunteering, which a quick google search has brought me back to STA Travel but they are good as I have friends that have travelled with them! http://www.statravel.co.uk/volunteer-in-africa.htm

    I have also seen an opportunity to volunteer for 5 months for a cost of £2000 building in countries like Zambia etc... (wow!)

    I'm sure you must do this already but search on Google for your course on Linkedin so search:

    BA (insert course title) University of (where you go) Linkedin

    and even try it with Masters programmes you have your eye on..

    So BA (course) Uni of (Where) MA (course) Uni of (where next) Linkedin

    and it should pull up some profiles of people who have done the course and give you some ideas of Master's courses they've gone on to do or organizations they have got to after 2 or 3 years work experience.

    additionally, if you are in your second year of study I'd recommend trying an industrial placement year as it will extend the amount of time you will have been 'at uni', give you time to let your first 2 years of study sink in and give you those desirable professional skills that are sought after in graduate placement schemes and for masters programmes.

    Remember, you will meet many people throughout your life but only a few will ever matter and more importantly the knowledge and skills will never go away, so think of what is important. and be optimistic and positive!

    Life, to an extent, is what you make of it.

    Everyone has interests, hobbies, and passions and it's up to them to follow them and make what they can from it. Those who get their dream job and happen to be paid enough to be comfortable with it are very lucky individuals. Everyone else has to get by and make the most of their life with the people they like

    Thanks a lot for this. Didn't know about linkedin, thought there was something around but it's given me a goal. It shows that there are a lot of options around if I have the ambition for it.

    The volunteering thing I'm unlikely to do it until the summer I graduate(next year) because I need money so will need a proper job in the summer haha. My friend was telling me about things in europe if I learnt another language but I'm not too fluent in french(fairly but not proficient enough to do a project in it) I guess it's like you said that I start from the bottom.

    I understand.

    Do you think you might have depression, OP?

    I have depression and anxiety and feel like this all of the time.

    I would suggest going out of your comfort zone and doing something different from your norm, if that doesn't help, it might be depression.
