    Is it weird that I'm actually jealous of everyone having their first day already. I don't start till Thursday.
    That was me last week when people were going in for induction days

    Talk to people you know/don't know and find people taking the same subjects as you

    At least you've got time to prepare! Just make sure you've got the right equipment and enjoy your time off

    Basically just go up to every single person you see and whisper "Harambe isn't dead."

    That was a joke, don't actually do that. Just be yourself and say hello to as many people as you can

    anyone
    The first thing you can do is have your head up high, showing your face makes you look more welcome and people are more likely to like you and want to talk to you. I know it's hard, I'm one to talk, I am so shy, I spent most of Year 11 science at the back of the classroom barely talking to anyone but the first step is to look approachable and like you are happy to talk

    This might sound like really weird advice but go into every conversation as if it's the only conversation with this person you're ever going to have. I'm naturally rather shy and have a tendency to overthink what I say and how people perceive me but this really helps. It stops me from over analyzing situations and being a little bit more natural.

    Other than that maybe try to just find something you like about someone and compliment them on it. Nine times out of ten saying you like someones shoes or something starts a conversation and it's really easy.

    The whole be yourself thing doesn't seem helpful but it's true sadly
