University Blues

Post by simply_a_dreamer » Tue Sep 23, 2003 7:49 pm

Just wanted to create a topic for anyone, who like me is not going to uni and watching all of their friends leave around them or for those who have gone and aren't too keen.

I fit into the first category and was fine until my other half went last Sunday. Personally I'm on my gap year and not going anywhere until November. So this is my spot for those of us who well are feeling a bit left out and want someone to chat to. Vent the way you feel

It's been my decision not to follow the route of going to university, although I still plan to study. A lot of my friends are staying in Manchester to study, and a lot of my friends are going to be studying around the country. The positive thing is that I have a few destinations for weekend breaks since I have a network of student friends!

I decided not to go to Uni as I didn't need to for my chosen career. My friends all went though.

I have a few regrets about not going but if I did I wouldn't have my own house, a car and a husband now!
