Hey, I've just started a new term and I'm feeling pretty low. It's my final year so have stressful exams for two weeks. Also, not really getting on that well with my housemates, feel I get on so much better with freinds back home, I don't feel I can be myself here. Finally, I dont feel very safe living in a large city, my room is on the ground floor and I get sleepless nights, waking up at the slightest noise.

Please help,

James

    remember, its not for long. i have a friend who is feeling very similar to you atm. he's in his 4th year and he has been quite down about this sort of stuff too. try and take it easy. its common for final year students to feel like that because one era and stage of their life is ending. PM me if you want details of what my friend is going through and i'll do my best to help you too :)

    Ah the final year is a stressful time but pull through the next couple of weeks and you'll be OK. Concentrate on usuing all the time you have to yourself to study and get through the exams, are there people on your course that you get on with? It may be worth trying to meet up for a coffee/ beer with a couple to take a break from all the revision and allow you to socialise a little more. I know I made most of my closest uni mates in the final year of uni, so there is plenty of hope for you to meet some new people.

    As for not liking living on the ground floor, is there anyone in your house who would be willing to swap rooms with you? It's worth asking surely :)

    Finally, once these exams are out of the way get yourself organised with your work, rewrite lecture notes so they make sense, keep up to date and know where all your important information is.

    making new friends

    It may also be worth inviting one of your mates from home up for a visit, you could go out to the union or a student night and that might help you to meet more people, as well as having some fun with someone you get on with well.

    Hope that helps

    Susie :)
