I know, but atleast you lot also have social lifes aswell. I used to, but now apart from the odd weekeend or occasion here and there i don't. I feel really lonely all the time, and when i try to arrange things with friends it's always "I'm working" or "I'm busy doing something".

After i went to college and did the wrong thing i thought about re-doing some education in the area i did want a career in, but i just don't think i would like the uni life, as you know i'm a shy and not very outgoing person.

Also i'm sorry for going on about stuff like this on here, but as stupid as it sounds, you're like the only people i can talk to about stuff recently.

Don't be sorry, it's not stupid at all. I don't care what people say, communities you find online are just as real and valid and valuable as those in so-called "real life." So emote away, Simone.

I think the fact that you are currently unemployed does impact on the rest of your life. I mean, i spend the best part of 10 hours a day going to and from work. It does impact on what you do with your social life etc.

Whilst you may feel shy and retiring now, you might not after a few months at uni. I came out of uni a radically different person than when i went in.

My other reason for suggesting uni would be that it would get you out of Scunny, which i think would be good for you.

Yeah i know what you mean, when i was last working i was probably at the happiest i've been in my life, last summer. Everything was good. But then i was seeing my friends outside of working time and i had a good social life, but like i say now i hardly ever see em.

I know Scunthorpe is shit, but i've never really thought about living anywhere else, since i've been here my whole life. Even my sister when she went to Uni only went to Lincoln and is back all the time.

Yeah, it's probably exacerbated by the fact that you don't have work to entertain you, as it were.

Hence why i think it'd be a good thing. Easy for me to say, i know, but a change is always worth a go. It's okay to worry about it. i was petrified before heading off to uni 200 miles from where i lived, not knowing anyone there. It's all a learning curve and can help build you as a person in loads of ways.

worth thinking about, at the very least. You're clearly smart enough to do it.

Oh psht. Yes, he should be using more sunscreen (it's ingrained into Australians from birth as we have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world, which is why I'm so pale ), but he hardly looks that old.

And even if he did, I'd still want to molest him.

Yeah i fucking loved my last job, i was so bummed that the place had to shut down. I may be smart enough to do it, but i don't know if i'd have the drive and motivation to actually get off my arse and do it. The whole looking for a uni/course, fees, loans, finding accomodation seems like so much work before i even get started.

I just really wish when i'd left school and gone to college i had made the right choice in the first place rather than practically wasting two years doing something i wasn't cut out to do.
