What It’s Really Like – Not Making …

In life, and particularly when you’re young, the focus seems to be on having a big group of friends and seeming “cool”. I’ve had people shocked to the core when I admitted I sat in lectures alone, claiming a lecture wasn’t worth going to if you weren’t there to socialise. But a lecture is always worth going to. After all, they exist as a teaching tool. University is primarily about getting a degree. And if you make friends, great! But if not, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. No matter how hard society pushes on you that a social life is more important than anything else at that point.
