    I wanted to go to uni next year but I missed the ucas deadline. I did have a job but I lost it because it was in a pub and I wasn't friendly or confident enough. There's a possibility I could be pregnant we used the pullout method 8 times. With no protection. I just feel like a part of me has given up. I can't even see a future at the moment. I have very little interests, my friends are at uni and I don't feel I'm competent enough to get another job I live in a small village with limited opportunities. I haven't learnt to drive yet I feel so isolated. The only good thing in my life is my boyfriend. I'm totally useless.

    I think first and foremost you should take a pregnancy test. You can buy them cheaply or, if you don't want to, then go to your local GP or GUM clinic. You say you live in a small village so you might need to get a lift or bus to get there but I would really recommend getting a test.

    Have you considered looking what universities still have places later in the year? I forget the name but closer to September universities with vacant places put them on the internet and you can do that. However, if your heart isn't in it then don't just do anything, you have to want to study something you'll be doing for 3 years.

    Could you perhaps ask to work in the kitchen of a pub if you're not gregarious enough to make it as a good bartender?
