you should see how upset some of these kids get anon it's priceless especially when you pull up crime statistics by race and the only rebuttal they have is "YOUR A RACIST!"
I'm just worried because the app requires you to enter your phone number when you first download it and I'm wondering if I got reported enough times for making daily posts that say things like "Who else views white girls that talks to black guys on campus as gutter trash?" or "When he has swastika tatoos xoxoxox" if the uni would bother tracking me down since the world is so PC these days.

HOW THE FUCK DO THEY KNOW?
My mom works here so I get free tuition. I really didn't want to go to college, and if I did go I'd rather go to the U but saving like 200k is important. I'd rather suffer for 4 years and not have any debt. I fucking hate everyone here, I seriously can't talk to any of these people. It's literally just high-school 2.0
Don't fucking let it break you, man. I know it seems like life is a one-track deal and you just got derailed, but it's not at all. I'm trying to pick just a handful of anecdotes of people I know with completely unorthodox or wonky or almost-failed academic trajectories who are now doing great. How many world-famous professors I can list who took 11 years to get their PhD because they fucked up or didn't give a shit. How many people in my program are doing their second Masters and realizing they don't even want it anymore, and it's just as much a waste as their first. How many people went to a shitty uni for undergrad and made it to Ivy for grad by knuckling down and going super saiyan. How many people took massive "breaks" because their life went to hell and went back later, only to do fine. And how little it matters in hindsight, when you're 40, that you had speedbump xyz instead of speedbump abc that some other dipshit had. The list goes on and on and on.
There are options. Reach out to any support you have, get some perspective on your situation OUTSIDE your own instead of tunneling further into your own pessimistic perspective. Seriously, you'll be fine. You can't possibly do worse than I did, and I came through in the end.
Classes start on monday for me.
I need a foreign language and bombed Mandarin last semester. (Mostly because I was too lazy to do the amount of work necessary to learn it.) So this semester, I'm taking Japanese, which will be turbo easymode because I'm already a decent conversational Japanese speaker. I'm expecting a ton of hilarious weeb stories to come out of it, and I'm currently trying to decide if I want to turn the whole semester into some kind of elaborate troll attempt rather than reveal my power level.

Who does that? Like who. People in class will fucking eavesdrop and then give their opinion even when nobody is speaking to them. This is why you should never make even the one friend. You make one friend and others will think you're friendly.
Don't make the same mistake I did, guys.

No, of course not. However, I expected to meet some bro-tier guys in my degree field. Of course they're all either normies getting into the field for the pay or just retards who couldn't dream of making it into a public uni. Maybe I'm just to cynical. I don't know

No complaints there.
I'm a math student and the only STEMmies I can stand to hang out with are the engineers, and then the comp sci-ers are next closest, math and lab science students are boring as fuck

cut them all out.
What should I even do?
I wouldn't be so torn up if I wasn't so confused why I was denied
My GPA was solid , I had tons of community service and even arranged community service stuff myself and led it
I had a good, relevant, deeply personal essay
I graduates highschool with my AA degree
I had a leading position in a club
I'm just upset that I can't go with the few friends I have to the college. I'm all alone again
And my life has been a massive shitshow since I was born, just the most unfortunate shit I had to deal with while still busting my ass in school
And for what? In the end I'm no better position than the kid who skipped school all the time and just barely passed year to year

Found this on /g/ and the second one fucked me up, I can't comprehend that shit like this actually happens.
I 'know' that it happens but it seems like a different universe to me, like, I've never even hugged a girl or flirted or anything and a guy my own age is getting blown by a chick after class.
Normalfags will tell you it's not a big deal but that's only once you've experienced it, for me it's difficult to think of anything else all day, even if I do good in my exams I still feel like a failure compared to retards who fails their classes and still have sex regularly, I feel like I'm missing out on youth.

At least you've got people to be around. I still desperately cling to my tiny friend group from high school. None of them go to my uni.
>asking for social advice on sperg board
Really though, "join clubs" is the refrain I hear. I find it much easier because there's always a common interest to discuss when the conversation stalls.
what the fuck is wrong with you guys? I would do anything to have one, just one fucking friend. Is it such an awful thing for people to actually LIKE you? Christ, you both sound like miserable people.
The second one is just a slut with a fuck boi
Those people exist outside of regular circles because the sluts have high standards but low self esteem
Those girls get passed around like a joint at a party but most girls don't. They are looking for bfs so they can jump on a dick every day and not get other girls bitching about them
It's not so much the sex that bothers me as much as the crippling loneliness. I've basically forgotten how to make friends, not that I had many in the first place. Seeing a counsellor soon to see if that helps.

just kill me now
To think that this should have been the year in which I attended every lecture and studied regularly. It's the
thirdtime I've lied to myself, and probably won't be the last
it isn't a lie, but it works only for normies. Even "nerdy" normies manage to find themselves a tight group of friends and maybe a nerdy gf.
I'm sure college could be even enjoyable if I had any friends to meet every day in class and to study with, but as it is I skipped a couple of lectures only because I was a couple of minutes late and I didn't want to enter the class with everyone's eyes on me:
>be literally 3 minutes late, lecture already begun
>oh well, I'll just wait sitting in the hallway for the next break to sneak in
>other student comes even later, sees me
>pretend I'm calling someone on the phone, than leave as he enters the class
>go back home and skip all the lectures for that day
Yeah I know what you mean. Sick of seeing self-professed "nerds" laughing with their friends and managing to get into relationships. Those cunts don't understand how bad some of us have it.
I'm in the same situation, I just sit on my own in pretty much every class. I'm doing ok academically but it fucking kills me knowing I'm just drifting through aimlessly, with no friends to rely on.
I never really wanted to go to uni because I feared this would happen. I feel so out of place, like an impostor.

Life's good. Thinking about getting a photography degree too, although it's not necessary as I can just experiment and self-learn as I did with programming.
Also, if anyone will even attempt this, I'm gonna say what everyone like me says: build your god damn porfolio before deciding to quit yet jobs, dropping out, etc. Participate in independent projects, start ones yourself, be willing to do/fix shit for free just to gain experience. Nobody will care about your services if they will not see any experience. That's harsh truth how economy works.
As someone who got a Poli-sci degree from a top 10 university, thinking I would go into law, please get out while you can. Suck it up and do the hard work it takes to get a useful degree. If you have to go for an extra year just take the hit. You don't wanna be 27 and having to go back and start from scratch. Also stop smoking weed.
You not the only one, friend. I've got no advice, but hang in there.

I literally can't sleep at night thinking I might have to go to campus sometime in the future. My meds can't handle this level of anxiety.
I get you, anon. I get you.
I can't relate to the crying thing though. It feels like I just need to cry my damn eyes out most every day but I just can't. It's like there's something physically stopping me from doing it.
Life is more complex than it seems right now. That's all I can say. You did everything right and it still went to shit. People lose their jobs after 10 years of building a career in some business because their bubble bursts. Entire resource economies collapse like out in Alberta and thousands of lives and life plans are destroyed.
It fucking sucks, man, but just don't give up. I know it means nothing and it's not something you want to hear right now, and it sounds like normie advice, but in ten years you will look back at this as, like, "a speedbump that happened" among several, rather than a pass-fail scenario where you Failed At Life.
I dated a prep school chick and watched her and her friends' dreams get destroyed because they were AMONG A SEA OF PREP SCHOOL KIDS. They all had perfect essays, all had ten thousand hours of clubs and leadership garbage, all had perfect GPAs, etc., etc. Education is fucked right now. It means nothing about YOU as a person. It's a thing you're going to have to step back from and work around, but you didn't fail at life. Life is a lot more bumpy than you think.
One of the professors I know got kicked out of Harvard and had to start all over and claw his way back up because he fucked off and didn't take his life seriously. Shit happens.
If your long term goal is academia or a professional career, you still have tons of options. Transfers, resubmissions, undergrad at shit uni --> grad at good one, or just outright being so fucking good at a mediocre uni that you make the right connections despite its lower prestige. It's all possible, and people with the drive to escape their shitty luck do it every year. Don't think linearly.
>I'm sure college could be even enjoyable if I had any friends to meet every day in class and to study with
This, I mean, I'm lucky enough to have a couple of friends but none in my classes. I'm a math major and it looks like there are a lot of autist-type people in my classes that just sort of come to class and leave without saying anything, in my non-math classes it seems like people somehow came into class knowing other people because they were chatting it up on the first day, and the two girls I'm paired with in english are like best friends. It's weird because it feels like you really have to have friends to make friends, but I don't know how these people made their friends in the first place.
>I never really wanted to go to uni because I feared this would happen. I feel so out of place, like an impostor.
This is literally me.
I took half a gram of MDMA on friday, first time ever doing it
I was the happiest and most content I had ever been in my life, I then went to the club with buddies and we just fucked around tripping out. Probably the best day of my life. Who /goodunifeel/ here
I know that feel bro, don't worry, you're not alone. I don't even know how I've made it this far, on my first day I just wanted to run away. My anxiety isn't so bad now but I feel dead inside.
>Only one alone at dinner
Dinner is the one thing I can't stand at my uni, I usually just don't go to meals. Since my university is divided into subcolleges, there is only one dining hall with about 200 seats and everyone can see everyone. It's probably easier at one of those big American schools with twenty different halls that anyone can go to which each have two floors etc etc.
In this case we in the UK have it better rather than worse. I would literally not be able to stand having a roommate. It's unfathomably terrible.
Seriously, American robots with roommates, how do you do it? Do they watch you browsing chans and dicking around online every day?
Do they get mad if you stay up all night or sleep to the afternoon? What do you do when Chad has Stacy over to sleep with him? Where do you go to have a wank?
Listen to this guy.
UK here, failed my A levels. Basically means you've screwed your chances of getting to uni.
I dropped my failed subjects and took two 2-year courses and completed them in one year. I worked REALLY hard.
End result? Top mark in my country for one of my courses, did well in the other two. Got to uni. Won a internship / scholarship / GUARENTEED graduate job in my FIRST SEMESTER of uni! And I've passed my 3 modules with 85%, 94% and 96% respectively.
I've turned my life around. If I can do it, you sure as hell can anon!
>Do they watch you browsing chans and dicking around online every day?
If they're in the room, they're usually just minding their own business. I'm on 4chan most of the day and it's not really a problem.
>Do they get mad if you stay up all night or sleep to the afternoon?
Well I'm a pretty polite person so if I'm going to be up all night I just go to the basement of my building and no one has a problem with anyone sleeping during the day, my roommates will normally come in and take naps anyway.
>What do you do when Chad has Stacy over to sleep with him?
Lol none of my roommates really get laid either, I live with three other guys and one has a gf but he usually goes to her room to fuck.
>Where do you go to have a wank?
Either go in the bathroom because we have one in our room or wait until everyone's asleep and just fap in bed. Also there's a couple hours when my roommates are in class but I'm not.
What subjects, anon? >>26463620 here and I'm doing fucking business studies, english lit/lang and film. I'm headed for straight As in each but damn am I not regretting the fuck out of what I chose.
This. At one point it go so bad I ran into the bathroom, removed one of my socks and came into it, then threw it in the trash.
Some guy noticed, made a joke exactly about what I just did and I turned bright red. He looked disgusted and just walked away

well at least i had fun pushing the uni student life, fuck yeah
>it feels like you really have to have friends to make friends, but I don't know how these people made their friends in the first place
basically all is decided on the very first day: as soon as you first step into the class you have to go to the nearest person and introduce yourself. That's it. All the groups I see everyday in class were formed on the first day and apart from someone dropping out they've been more or less the same.
Of course I fucked up on the first day by getting lost and arriving one hour late to the first lecture, so I sat alone in the back rows; being pretty shy I barely talked to anyone that they and boom! four years later I'm still here all alone in the back rows.
Contrary to what is usually said, group work helped a lot because it forced me to introduce myself and talk to people, which is the most difficult part for me. At least I can say to know someone in my class. I still eat alone and sit alone though.
I even managed to get paired to a qt once (she was the one who approached me too) but that went awful: we decided to wait some weeks before working on it because we had other exams to do, but we never interacted in the other classes (she was with the cool guys); summer came, I was doing bad with the exams and never got the courage to contact her about the project. Deadline closed, I had to drop out because I never did the assignment (the course wasn't mandatory though). Never talked again to the girl, but I found out she passed that class.

So basically you're dealing with a lot of e^(i) (pi) (omega)?
You're going work in front of a computer 95% of the time on the computer with either LabVIEW or some programming gui.
I studied there for 4 years. Best 2 years of my life, followed by the worst 2.
Still glad I went though. Living in Ox now as well. Comfy architecture.
e^i*omega*t is everywhere
I don't think we'll even touch LabVIEW, or is this only used in the workplace? I do lean towards IT though (had some networking and programming classes too), that's basically the only prosperous field in my country.
>I'm flailing about because I decided to stop doing history because I like money
NOOOOO, don't do that, you will just be in uni longer, if you're good at history stay in there. Minor, get certified in something.
>tfw no gays in enigneering
>tfw not into the gay scene shit
>tfw all the other gay guys I do meet are not necessarily flamers, but all are SJWs
Ok, you're working with signals and systems. That means a shit load of LabVIEW or some equivalent. You'll be moving around blocks (filters, mixers, etc). Specifics depend on whether you go digital signal processing or analog. Good luck and do internships while your in college. Employers get a hard dick over internship experience.

The fact that you thought you were good enough for one of the best universities in the world should tell you you can be successful somewhere else. I got rejected from Stanford and MIT and now 3 years later I've done really well on scholarship from an okay state school, and now I wouldn't trade it for the alternative if I could. There are worse things than being the big fish in the small pond

Who /hopeless/ here?
According to Malcolm gladwell and one of his books its better for your future to be a big fish in a little pond and there is some good evidence to support this. Psychology student here.
transfer to a real uni and switch to IS its pretty similar to CS but less math and focus on coding and more business stuff involved. It's filled with bro tier guys at least in my uni.
blue collar work is for apes, I'll stick with my stem degree and since I lived at home and took half my classes at community college and got a pell grant I will only owe like 4 grand when i graduate.
unless you're at a top end university, do accounting if you want a guaranteed job. Also the math is super simple, its much more about concepts and business framework. It's one of the few majors out there that will all but guarantee a job with only a bachelors. It also encompasses alot of the other two curriculums if you want to double major.
absolutely, I definitely wasn't on the same track as mit or stanford, but I ended up going to a state school that had an ok business program. I am now working at a place that mostly hires from notre dame, northwestern, and vanderbilt and shit like that. Going to a less competitive college allowed me to work a lot more and that experience gave me a huge leap ahead to get a job right out of school. Not to mention I only have a bachelors and most other people I work with have a masters.

The most important lesson uni has taught me is how worthless I truly am. I'm fat, KHV, no game, pretty dumb, not athletic and not even happy.
Also a fat, ugly manlet too. 5'5", even if I did lose the pounds, my face is too strange of a mix of effeminate and masculine, an uncomfortable combo.
I can only imagine what my dorm mates say about me when I'm not around.
Graduated Sociology from WMU (in addition to several other anons).
Take a course with Gapova and a course with Cooney. Top tier profs.
Also, is Zombies v.s. Humans still a thing on campus? It was huge for a couple years then started to die down right around when I graduated a year ago.
Just give up on STEM and major in history like me, senpai. I've already come to terms with my lack of a future, so I might as well learn some cool Roman/medieval/19th century shit
I just want a quiet life, fuck.
>Doing STEM, working my ass off to maintain placement
>Friends try to bring me out of my shell, fuck with my study time because art students with money and freedom.
>Enjoy the company, but they know no limits.
>qt's come to me to talk, but don't want GF or relationship. Look like total autist.
>Constantly pressured to 'go down on her' or just get a GF from parents.
>Work won't shutup about "you're not working your 27 hours that's disrespectful" in a fucking retail store FILLED with casuals.

>Too afraid going to lose my future career over assholes who just can't understand my needs.
>Parents probably going to start shunning me if no partner soon, no license either so they're buying me lessons
>Lessons I don't have fucking time for because people won't stop getting in my way.
Learn an Asian language. The most common one on campus.
Make friends with the smart Chads and Staceys if possible, we can be less Chad/Stacey-ish.
Tour the city and look for Minotaur or something if you want.
Do not fuck with someone's bike, don't fall on someone in the tram, don't fucking swear too much on the train, etc.
Dress as borderline hipster as you're comfortable with if you want to disguise yourself.
Find a nice cafe. Then find the perfect takeaway place.
Make friends with the STEM's, or other students, whoever.
>Feel like killing myself on a daily basis but am too scared to do it
Your suffering is a result of your cowardice, blow your brains out and
go burn in Hell for all eternity because suicide is a sin. The ride never ends fuccboi.
Going back to university for what will be my seventh to ninth years of university. I fucking hate it, but it means free money from the gubmint and not having to actually find a job. I now have a degree in psychology (fucking hated it) and a diploma of languages in nipgo, and am going back for three years of linguistics and Japanese. I want to be a translator someday, and I vary between being sure I can do it and having absolute confidence that I can't. I'm competent at the language, given time, I just have a limited vocabulary currently. I just have no contacts and NO fucking idea how to get into translation, especially since all the companies that do it seem to be in murrika.

Sure I'm in enough debt to bury a King, but I don't have to pay jack shit until I'm making more than enough to barely notice the added tax, which will be never because I'll probably get paid shit all.
normie and SJW central, someone save me
>Fail half of my classes because I couldn't find groups for most assignments
Hence the pariah part. It's either isolation or companionship with these people.
Does not help that some asshole decided to start rumors I'm a woman beater after I questioned why it's not ok to hit women in the situation it's ok to hit men.
Got teachers and the staff giving me dirty looks.
It's as if these fuckers think it's highschool, christ.
>tfw halfway in second year and finally have a group of friends

Honestly, try a community college.
You can get all of those retarded pre-recs out of the way in a more transitional environment.
Just make sure everything transfers

enjoy your second-class life
i'd kill myself if i wasn't in my last semester before graduating
not that i'm going to as it's mid february and i haven't done ANY work this semester, paralyzed with fear like a little autistic pussy and i can't write anything for my dissertation
i can't stand this place and the people are worse
>snow on valentines day
still didn't stop that guy getting murdered and his body burned in a wheelie bin the other week
Oh man, I feel you. What's your major? I'm only a second year student, but I'm so afraid of the future, I have no idea how I'm going to manage to finish my dissertation when the time comes.
This place can be nice, but it can also be a shithole. People, well it depends. Also fuck snow.
history, picture related.
the secret to the future is don't make my mistakes: go to class, network with your professors
if you can't motivate yourself take some adderall or whatever it takes to get it done dude
what are you studying?
Politics and IR. I'm kind of lazy, but I keep getting C1-B3 grades with fairly minimal work. I do assume it's going to get worse once I get into third year, and that's what I'm so afraid of. I have no idea how to actually study.
hey dude that's basically what i had going on, i dunno how it works for pol/ir but for history at least your graduating grade isn't affected by your first two years so it isn't over yet
i dunno how to study and i basically only came to aberdeen (and university in general) because it was as far as I could possibly go from my hometown in England so i can't really offer any advice in that department but if you're not doing anything and getting B3 grades you can graduate with a 2:1 if you can force yourself into doing work - for my third year i took all classes without exams and i averaged a B1 because i'd just pull all nighters before deadlines and force myself to write some shit out, maybe something like that would work for you too
at least you don't have to worry about jobs just yet lil nugga
>Transferring at the end of the year

>it's been three weeks how the fuck am I supposed to introduce myself now fuck fuck fuck just fucking end it already
>tfw you realize you are studying something completely boring for you, but you will get a good job after uni
Thinkgen of quitting bachelor's here. Also studying history but I'm not sure. Should I finish it and major in something actually useful, or quit bachelor's and start all over again?
>Be in my 4th year of Software Engineering
>Still with 2nd and some 3rd year subjects
>I though my classmates would be like me, but instead they're just "I'm so nerdy :)" normies and some stacies.
>No friends at all, not even on internet.
>I try to be nice, but I'm so shy and autistic that I've become "that weird guy" who arrives autistically early and never talks unless it's absolutely necessary or others talk to me first.
>Going to Uni everyday is the only thing that makes me go out of home.
>I'm two years away from graduation and I don't feel ready to work or make some decent program.
Maybe I should just kill myself for being a waste of money and resources.
>switched to sociology/criminal justice double major just because of this videogame character
>loving every second of it
>already doing an internship at my local PD
>tfw thick skinned
What's everyone's GPA here?
I graduated with a 3.8 out of high school and I'm stressed as fuck because I made a D last semester. Things aren't looking good this semester either, all my classes are hard as shit.
>In my second year of uni
>All groupmates are standing for something, work, have interests in life while studying good
>I do nothing in my life and in my education
> Skip classes a lot
> Parents are disspaointed by myself, but I feel like I'm just broken
My feels? Lost sanity. Violent fantasies. Crippling fatigue.
Got up Friday at 6, studied for an oncology exam I barely passed, had to go to a 4 hour interprofessional convention, then worked on some organization business, and went and worked on my research in the lab until 11pm.
Got up Saturday, headed straight to the lab to finish. Was done at 4pm, went to Starbucks to read my book leisurely for 45 minutes, then went and worked on a different group research project until 9:30.
Today, I'm doing homework all day in addition to studying in preparation for an infectious disease readiness assessment test tomorrow.
I'm so close to losing it.
Man, at least you're fighting. Good for you, keep it up.
It is SUPPOSED to be the best time of your life. It's basically high school 2.0 only you are allowed to drink and skip classes from time to time. Good luck enjoying it though if you are not sociable. It's much easier to be alone at uni than in HS.
Holy fuck matey are you me?
I've literally skipped whole days because I was a minute late for class and had anxiety attacks because I'd have to go in and get stared at
>miss first class of semester
>"I'll definitely go next week"
>literally have hand on lecture hall door the next week
>imagine everyone staring at me, the door was at the front with amphitheater style seating
>imagine lecturer humiliating me by pointing me out or loudly asking if I'm in this class
>start sweating buckets, run off into the city hating myself
>starts to rain as I flee through the city streets in a shame spiral
> tfw going to study chemical engineering in September, got into uni via vocational route (britfag w/ level 3 certificate + level 4 HNC in mech eng) where the maths was pretty easy and everybody says the math is super hard and only azns and virgins can do it.
Isn't engineering maths pretty much all transposition and problem solving?
>skipped more than half of the lectures because the professor used to pick random students out to solve exercises in front of the class and I couldn't bear the anxiety
I don't understand why professors do this. Also participation grades in fucking college? This isnt high school anymore. I feel so relieved when my class is a huge fucking auditorium with 300+ people and no attendance requirements. Makes things so much easier, you come in sit down, listen to your professor talk and leave afterwards.
4.0 for freshman and sophomore year, dual majoring in accounting and business management
i'm in the second half of my junior year now though, and i'm starting to realize how little gpa matters
the fucking retards in my class are going to get the exact same piece of paper as i do, so if they don't do any of their homework, why should i?
i got s 3.46 last semester and started not showing up to lecture every time i could afford it
>get into imperial for chemistry
>breeze through classes at first class/high 2:1 level with minimal studying
>jobs i wanted usually require PHD/Masters
>no friends or acquaintances at uni
>in my 3rd year and I've never had less motivation than now.
I don't even go to lectures anymore, i just shitpost on here and watch anime
>skip a lot of classes because anxiety is at an all time high
>terrified to check my school e-mail in the event one of my professors e-mails me about it
>afraid to go to class because I've missed too many in a row already
>going to continue to miss even more because I'm afraid of the professors saying anything about how many days I've missed
By the time i wasn't super awkward around women in college, I realized how much more important it was to focus on my major. I'd rather get a good job and then get a girl than have some random slut now while flunking out. And I guarantee I can't do both.
Fair enough. I'm Com Sci myself, and I kinda see where engineering guys come from, it's hard to get in and they're usually really devoted.
But from what I heard entrance averages are rising, if I were applying this year I'd probably off myself before June.
>get advertisements from an all-boys university
>"...and girls love guys who go to an all-boys school! Every weekend, most of our gentlemen can be seen metting the welcoming arms of a girlfriend as they leave campus to have some fun."
Not falling for that shit.
>tried to kill myself two years ago
>had that sudden urge to live
>now back in uni
>go to class, study and do homework at home
>no friends, no social life, I even quit my job so I could handle a higher course load
>don't even care anymore
>making B's and decent grades
>no stress, no joy, a resigned emptiness
>I know that school can't kill because I'm already dead
Oh man. I had to pay $40 for the same reason. The professor does some shitty quiz at the start of every class that we have to answer with our $40 clicker devices in order to be counted in attendance. They're not even good questions either for a physics class, it's just really easy shit like "What is Newton's First Law?" or "An object travels 3 meters per second for 5 seconds. How far does it go?" I only forgave this shit because textbooks were only $20 overall.

My situation is so fucking stupid. I wish my teachers never told me that good grades would let me go to college for free. I'd have just dropped out and joined the Army, assuming the recruitment office wouldn't turn me away too. At least then I'd be getting an income.
>losing motivation to do assignments
>stopped caring about my future post uni
How do I turn it around
I'm not trolling, and I know I'm pathetic. I just can't handle being around other people.
Connections are important, but it's even more important to have social skills. And good grades are not a meme, but if you have the connections and social skills the grades matter way less.
