    Hi. I'm about to start my second year of university, but I am absolutely dreading it. I am doing law at a very good university. But the first year I hated. Not necessarily because of the course, which was quite interesting (but so much work which meant I had little spare time at all), but rather just university generally. It's just the whole place that I really don't like, the dynamic of uni, the classes, the lectures. I much preferred school where it was simpler, and things were just a little easier. And I got really really homesick last year, to the point that in the second term I was going home nearly every weekend. And it's not like I had no friends there, I do and I am living with a couple of them for this second year, but it's just not the same as friendships I have at home. And during this summer, my girlfriend of a year broke up with me, and that's hit me really really hard. She helped me so much during the first year of university, when I was homesick etc she would be there to phone or text and just help me through it. And now without her this second year just seems far more daunting than it otherwise would have been. It was nice to have that person who helped me through the tough first year, and now without her I'm dreading uni even more. I have no idea what to do

    If you don't like it , LEAVE!

    Don't make yourself unhappy , do you have to have a degree right now? , I highly doubt it , just work for a while and once you are sustained then go to University.

    Lol.

    Maybe try and use it as a chance to try new things. I'm often seen on here talking about clubs and socs. But genuinely try one out it would give you more things to do and take your mind off of homesickness. It might lead to making more genuine friendships like your one at home. Also at the end of the day, it's only a months a year. Especially if you count in the fact that you're there a few months then it's Christmas. A few months later it's Easter. Then it's summer!

    Sadly, you can't go back to school.
    So you've just got to get on with it. :yep:

    Give yourself a couple of slaps, :slap:
    then a hug, :hugs:
    then a hot drink and chocolate biscuit, :tea:
    and get on with the work.:work:

    If you think uni is bad, wait until you start work.
    (Not meaning to depress you or anything, but you've got to look on the bright side :lol: )
