    Yes, I've been working Friday and Saturday evenings, along with a few other shifts during the week, which has really got in the way of going partying or clubbing. I've missed out on a lot of friend meetings to catchup many times because they are organised on Fridays, and I don't want to be the only one who everyone else has to reorganise around for.

    This has been going on since as young as I could start working, like since 14. Now I'm 23 and I try get off work an hour earlier so that there are still trains going into Central from where I am in order to go clubbing.

    Sucks but that's life.

    My social life was far better when I worked than it currently is at university, mainly because I could always afford to get absolutely bladdered.
