i hate it
much prefer being at home
most of the people there are quite boring to me, its a bit of a shock even still going from a big group of close mates to it
even small things like cooking and washing just grate on me
moneys annoying me
yeah at manchester
it aint that i dont talk to people or go out its just mainly people that i really arent bothered about
i hated most of last year (i'm in second year now), so much so that i wasn't even sure if i wanted to go back after the summer, but somehow everything has magically got a lot better this time around. a big part of it is just that i'm not in halls anymore - and don't worry, i didn't find people to share a house with before march or something.
i know that's probably not much of a comfort now, but just try to hang in there. something that i found helpful was to just find places around town that were kind of my own, where i could go if i felt depressed and/or alone and just relax.
i take it you're not crazy about your flatmates? i wasn't and i don't talk to any of them anymore. god, i really really hated halls.
it takes a while to find some good friends, you've only been there like 3 months so it's still early days :)
im not going to drop out or anything, and i do think that at college it wsnt until march until i proper found my circle of friends, its just that most people here like nothing remotely that i do, except for some at the met who i do see
dont we have to think about a house at like january?
thats what ive been told more or less
im in oak house too :)
03-04..it was pretty good. Then again I did go to a lot of places I really didn't like just to meet more people.
Realistically it takes quite a while to really find people you will realy click with. From year one of Uni, I know one person still and he is easily in my top 3 friends. Sometimes you just need to pluck up the courage to talk to people in lectures who vaguely look like they might be into the same things as you.
I was in Oak House last year
Oak House DiSsers represent.
people I knew that way had a great time, I was in Hulme Hall though.
Oak House for the dicerning town dweller
it was pretty basic, but the showers were fucking ace., and it was really good for meeting people. My girlfriend was in Hulme Hall, isn't it like a million pounds a week?
well it varies depending on what block you're in. I was in Burkhardt which is fairly expensive, but not as much as OP as I had to move out for the easter hols which bumped the price down. Ensuite FTW
except i don't
i get on well with one lad, but the other two arent english so its quite a struggle at times, one gets involved but its still really hard to talk to him at times
the girls are all nice enough, but just on a different wavelength really (ie watching loose women)
stick it out, try and meet people in other ways through societies and stuff. Just because loads of people only hang out with their coursemates and the people they end up living with doesn't mean it's the best way of doing it.
1. Hispanic Studies is a terrible degree.
2. People who walk around halls promoting terrible club events.
both can fuck off.
It's not for everyone but it does get better.
I was lucky and had a great time, but a lot of people I know got depressed and left. It's the way it is, but also it's a great opportunity to do so much stuff, even if that's get drunk every day with your mates or training twice a day as you're on the rowing team.
In short: Exploit it and get what you want from it. The opportunities are endless. Definately 100% better than being at home, working in an office.
