Why do I feel like I've wasted my life when I'm only 18 Watch

    I was never the popular person in school. I was quiet and reserved but still had a great group of friends and enjoyed school in general. However, we never went out on the weekends or half term so I never really had a social life outside of school. Before I started sixth form I'd hope it would get better but things are still the same, really. I always feel like I'm missing out because on Facebook and Snapchat there's people my age going out every weekend and they look like they're having the time of their lives and I've never really had that? I spend most of my time reading, writing and revising and I just feel like I'm wasting my youth. This probably sounds really stupid but it's starting to get me down

    I know what you mean, I’m in a similar situation in that I don’t have a group and tend just dip in and out of 3/4, so no group considers me friends enough to do things outside of school, I’ve got a few good friends but never really do much with them. I don’t drink either so am not invited to any big parties etc. I get a different wrap to the other kids as well because I’m head boy and sometimes I feel like they take the mick and see me as staff now, joking saying ‘sir’ when they see me etc. I don’t mind that, it’s quite funny really.

    At least you’re working hard and studying, I need to do more of that.

    I’m alsways told that I will come into my element at Uni and that I’ll me more people that I can properly get along with and do stuff with.

    I’m thinking uni will be my place, I’m going to London a big city as well hopefully so should hopefully have much more social things etc there!

    Hope this helps. Max

    uni is the place to do it... forget school...uni changes u.
