    Am I the only one, or is leaving uni one of the worst experiences I've faced so far?

    So after 3 years of... admittedly partying, mediocre job prospects and all my new and old friends spread all over the country, any tips that can be given with dealing with it?

    Look forward to what's to come, rather than wistfully backwards at what you feel you've lost.

    Enjoy the lack of stress. But it does suck. Just get your dream job.

    Pretend it never happened and go back to college to study something new. At least that's my way of dealing with it. I'm back in college doing a HNC in a completely different field and I'm loving every second of it.*

    I know, it was sad for me too. really loved the experience of uni, despite all the expenses it really is one of the best experiences that i wish everyone would get the chance to experience. its nothing like school or college, the atmosphere is great, the people are more mature, everyone seems happy and you are treated like an adult. uni finished too quickly for me too, almost felt tempted to go again to get another degree but i had to start working
