New year.........new me?

I am soooo sick of my life and the way it is and I really want to make a change for this coming year. I'm 18 to start off with. I don't have any friends anymore, I used to have some but we've just drifted apart and are no longer in contact. So I never really go out anymore or seem to have fun.

I'm 18 to start off with. I don't have any friends anymore, I used to have some but we've just drifted apart and are no longer in contact. So I never really go out anymore or seem to have fun.

I do go to college so it not like I'm stuck in the house all the time. But at college, I don't really know anyone, because I find it hard to make friends and be sociable. I tend to go into my self a lot and get intimatdated when it comes to social situations. I also think because I'm shy and quiet that people think I'm a bit aloof and stuck-up, which I'm not.

I'm single and have been for what feels like forever, although there is this guy that I sit next to and chat to, I really like him, I think he might even like me too...but I'm pretty shy when it comes to stuff like that and I get the impression he is too.

I also procrastinate way too much and stuff never seems to get done till the last minute, so I'm so stressed and always feel like I'm working under a deadline.

I just feel really empty and bored all the time and can't be bothered doing anything. I'm beginning to feel like I'm wasting my life away, but don't know what to do about it.

So anyone got any suggestions on what I can do to change things?

Please no nasty answers, I need some genuine advice.

Thanks to you all for answering, its really appreciated :D

Happy holidays xxx
