So, I'm at college right now....time of my life, right? not quite...I feel trapped here, like everything's falling apart at my feet and I can't do anything about it.

I don't have any releases either, I used to go smoke or go for a drive. I'm pretty dry in terms of some things, and I don't have a car =\, and I want to play music but my roommate's are annoying because they always say "play me something" and it pisses me off quite a bit, especially since I'm sorta at that point where I'm trying to find my own sound and experiment with it and everything, but I don't have any opportunity for that.

It'd be awesome if I had people to jam with, like one of my roommates, who's being a douche right now and won't play his drums or anything...wtf.

Sorry for the rant, I'm just not in a good mood at all anymore because of stupid college. It's not even the classes that stress me, it's the people and lack of things to do here. So any suggestions of what I can do so I don't feel so empty anymore would be great.

If you really want to jam, sign up for skype and do it online with friends that do play an instrument.
Or jam with people near you.
#4
change your course maybe? If your lookin for someone to jam with then you could write a song, and ask someone who plays an instrument if they could listen to it. That kinda helps break the ice so you can meet more musicians.

Why can't you go smoke?
Why can't you play by yourself?

Focus on class, find people to hang out with, college will be great.

I graduated high school 2 years ago with all honors. Because of some family issues, I was not able to go to college and now I'm stuck working in a dangerous environment just barely getting by and with no real direction in life. Blow me.

can't smoke cus I'm dry on supply, all I have are cigars which I have a few times a week. I'd play by myself but I want to be loud and tinker with everything possible on the amp/instrument/pedal so I don't want others to hear it right away necessarily because I'm sure that a lot is gonna sound bad.

There's not really anyone to hang out with here, it's a commuter school for the most part, my parents made me live on campus because of a housing scholarship. Sometimes my highschool friends will hang out with me, but it's a long drive for them so it's once a week, maybe twice

@sticksause **** off man, I have enough shit to deal with already, I don't want yours.

Living on campus should make it easier to meet people. Don't stay in and play guitar all day. Make an effort. You can't depend on highschool friends forever.

I don't understand what 'shit' you have to deal with? You don't have any weed, oh no, you want to play guitar but don't have the balls to tell your roommates to piss off, you don't have a car.

You missed the point: Be a little grateful that you got something. I wish I could go to school.

insomnia is shit, I used weed to help me sleep, now I can't, so I lay in bed until 3 or 4 and then wake up at 830 every day. That catches up to you after a while.

Sadness, I wouldn't call it depression but I'm sure it's close. I can't drive anymore to have time to myself, so I'm just stuck here.

I tell my roommates to piss off then they just say "hurrdurr can't play it" then I do play stuff for them and they say my music sucks, or that I'm not good enough to play that music. Which pisses me off because I'm used to a relaxed environment of playing where everyone has either constructive criticism or plays their instrument together. Unlike my roommate who has a drum kit and hasn't touched it since he brought it.

I have anxiety and this place isn't chill at all, I would tell my parents I hate it but they'd be all mad and say I'm worse than my sisters then probably kick me out on the streets.

I'm looking for any help from people who actually have shit to say, people that have been in this position. I'm sick of douche bags, I have to deal with enough of them here at school.

And what exactly is keeping you from finding someone in College who wants to jam? You can't depend on your highschool friends forever.

OT: Go and socialise. As much as you don't want to hear it you have it pretty good and are being melodramatic about it.

Even if your flat mates are massive wankers just bite the bullet and hang around with them. Just try and meet new people through them if they are THAT bad.
#23
Last guy to say his life sucked at least have a decent story. You are in college and have no money, sounds like every ****ing one else. Get a job. Buy weed, buy car. Play guitar dude, not that difficult. If they harass you so nuch just play them a ****ing song lol. Play **** you by reel big fish. Or play anythi.g wtf go complain somewhere else.
#25
I sympathize with your problems, Everything is in fact falling apart. I do not intend to cheer you up with others suffering like the other gentlemen in this thread. If anything changes do post about it.

It's easy to make friends at college:
1. Buy case of beer/bottle of spirits/goonsack
2. Share with roommates
3. Get drunk and go to college bar/local club where all the college kids hang.
4. Talk to other people, including girls even if they are slutty/ugly and just want nasty sex.
5. ?????
6. Repeat every weekend.

Congrats you've made friends!

Why don't you join a studentsociety? I'm from the Netherlands so I don't know the difference between college and university... I joined a Aikido club and a spanish music club in Eindhoven, and every thursday you can go drinking at the faculty bar, so there's lots of stuff to do!

Dude. There is no problem at all. It's a state of mind. You just gotta sort your shit out and do something different. You can't expect everything to be rainbows and bunny rabbits all the time can you? Just get off your ass and stop bitching about how hard things are when you can easily change it yourself.

Get drunk, make friends, play guitar regardless of what your dick headed roommate says.
Just a sub-par guitar player..

Sorry but..

I understand because you've moved, everything's changing, blah blah. But I also don't understand because I've moved about most of my life so I don't think it's a big a deal as you're making it out to be.

All of these small problems are easily fixed. So easily they're not even real issues. You will giggle when you get into the real world.

"Aww i want to play guitar but I don't want anyone to hear me!".. Seriously?
