Social Life... where you at?

Following on from my previous post, my social life has taken a drastic fall since coming back to uni this past September. Don't get me wrong I've had my nights out with my friends and "partied hard" but culture-wise, I haven't had the time to take a day off and just go wherever the wind takes me. This sucks so much because I feel like I've lost my sense of freedom due to my head being in front of my laptop finishing assignments or going to work for a few hours of my day.

I have a social life, It's quite obvious that I do. The fact is... it's just not that social anymore. I'm constantly speaking to the same people and don't get me wrong that isn't a bad thing but let me just throw it back to my first year where I was meeting someone new at least every other week. I miss that, I really do. The social part in social life is so crucial to me because I love interaction. Talking to people makes me happy and the feeling that I get is indescribable. I smile from cheek to cheek 😁.

All I do is work and work at my jobs that I have. I'm getting a bit sick of this routine because I feel as if nothing interesting is happening and when I feel like something great is about to come across my path - it doesn't. I mean I'm in my final year at uni, no one said that I will have all the time in the world but I do miss having hours in the day where I had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do. Maybe it's just me? I'm not used to being 'constantly' busy but I like to be busy to an extent. I feel like I'm in a bit of a funk and I can't get out of it. This isn't like me at all and I'm getting a bit worried.

I'm developing a higher level of stress and I'm as tired as ever BUT this will not get me down.

Having a social life can be put on pause, my education cannot. Why would I want to choose hanging out with friends over getting my degree? I know how harsh that sounds but I came to uni to gain a degree and I'm not leaving without it. So if that means talking to the same faces 7 days a week, so be it. I'll make the most out of that then because when my day comes to wear my cap and gown, I'll know that being anti-social was 100% worth it.
