Do You Guys Have Any Advice On How To Make My Life More Fun?

I'm a 20 year old college student, I go to a small college, only around 1,000 kids go to my school, and around half leave for the weekend, so, suffice to say, my college is very boring. I have made no friends here outside of my roommates and a kid I went to high school with. The school is good for me academically though, so I can't really transfer or I will flunk out of almost any other school I go to.  At home I live in the suburbs, where there isn't that much to do. I don't really have any friends at home, I have some of their cell numbers, but they literally hardly ever invite me out, and when I do go out with them, I don't have much fun. I went to a boarding school for 4 years, and thats where I made my closest friends. Unfortunately they are spread all over the country, and I have lost touch with all but a couple of them. Now I just spend my entire day either watching tv, playing video games, or here on my computer. I'm not suicidal or anything, but I feel like I am completely out of ideas. I'm begging you guys, do you have any advice for me on how to improve my life?

I went through a period in my life like this. I finally overcame it by forcing myself to do things I'd never done before, with or without friends. Go out to a restaurant you've never been to before, try an exotic food, learn a new skill.

My motto is to do one new thing a month, anything as small as trying a new food, to as big as white-water rafting. When I first started doing this, I did a lot of things on my own. As time has gone by, I've met a lot of new people, and made some interesting friends I would never have met otherwise.

Stepping outside of your comfort zone is the first step. It worked for me, and I bet it could work for you.

wow im kinda feeling lighter than yesterday... this site is great! finally realized that im not alone in the earth! ha! thats funny! im just like you and everybody else here....sooo bored...

You gotta start looking for a friend someplace close by..Try the places young adults go..malls, coffee shops, library. I don't know if people go to the library anymore!. Still, living with no friend is certainly a drag.How about a part time job in a cool store? Beats sitting around
