    my last exam is the 24th, and then I'm on holiday from the 26/7th.
    I'll come back, work full time, go on holiday again with friends, work full time and do some reading until results.
    Then I can run around like a headless chicken sorting everything out.

    I think its the college atmosphere, the people there are really anti-social. Its like 'hello' and the end. No conversations whatsoever. Maybe because its a private college? I donno...just I wish others would be more friendly...

    My school is a great place to socialise. Im going to miss it like hell. Me and all my friends hang around in the school study area in the comfy chairs and theres always a load of people to hang out with and chat to or play games with.

    Yes, seems to be a growing phenomenom, crappy colleges and whining teenagers complaining that its boring and **** for socialising, which it is. The day I have a decent conversation with someone in my year group, is the day I die. yay.
    lol why do u think people are like that?

    Well in my case it's because all the people in my year group fit under the majority of the following criteria:

    1.) Dull Clones
    2.) Ignorant
    3.) Spoilt
    4.) Thick
    5.) Don't care about education
    6.) Weird.
    7.) Nasty

    LOL, hold on, i would of thought that 'dont care about education' would make them more social?

    1 Why does wearing Dull Clothes make someone unfriendly?
    2 ok
    3 Just because somsone is spoilt doesn't mean that they will act it all the time.
    4 It may be hard to hold a conversation of intelligent matter with a 'thick' person but you only have the observations in a school environment, they could not be thick at all, just not suited to the setting.
    5 And that would make them a bad friend?
    6 Hardly a useful term, you are being a little narrow minded if you are labeling people weird and not talking to them for it
    7 fair enough

    It seems like you are making excuses for not being social yourself.
    Last year, I wasn't very social in college, didn't really talk to anyone in classes. I found it boring and would hate having to hang around.
    This year, I made the effort and spoke to people. Now when walking around college I will see people I know and can stop and chat. You need to open your mind and not judge people.
    Get to know some people.

    Believe me some people just dont want to talk to anyone...even if you put the effort it. But I do see where you're coming from

    Get to know some people.
    1.) Read.
    2.) sorted.
    3.) Erm, but they generally do.
    4.) Well I'm in school aren't I, and no, they don't randomly change when they step outside.
    5.) Yes, because there's no good in trying to change your personality to fit in, pretend you're interested in *****e to fit in etc. for the sake of some crappy friend who you don't even click with in any way?
    6.) Well half of them sit there not talking, when I try and make conversation, it goes as far as one word answers and sielnce again. Not exactly normal is it?
    7.) ok

    There's key differences between 1.) chat 2.) decent conversations and 3.) decent friends.

    Also notice, how you're having to make all the effort. Says a lot doesn't it ehh, about your school?

    4: I didn't mean that people will change when outside of school, just that you don't have to be academic to hold a conversation. Through conversation you make friends
    6: You may not see it as normal, if they are trying to work it's normal. Perhaps they are shy? or feel intimidated by you etc? I usually react like that around new people if I'm having a bad to average day. Some people just get really nervous around new people. Try open ended questions...What did you do at the weekend? What do you think of.... etc etc

    I don't make all the effort now. Last year I didn't make an effort to make any friends. I would never stay around college very long, I didn't like to be outside in around people...I was pretty much scared of everyone
    This year I just spoke to people, would offer help etc. Ignored my mind screaming scary people at me, and now have some great friends.
    It isn't anything about my college, if anything it's the easiest place to make friends, it's central and the main large A level centre in Bristol. I just wasn't up to meeting new people last year.
