    Hello need a little bit of advise.

    I am in first year of a PhD, I am finding it very different from undergraduate (changed city). I work 9-5, which is fine but there is only 2 other people working in my department (rest work at different hospitals/the university), so I rarely have fun/conversations at work.

    I find during the week my life consists of work, tv, sleep and back to work. I want to meet new people. I am going to join societies again as soon a I can next year, but any suggestions for the rest of this year, of how to make life more interesting/meet new people?

    I live with my partner, who works nights (get to spend weekend with them tho ). Neighbors are adults with families, not sure I would have much in common with them tbh. There are some other young adults in our apartment block (maybe students?) but how do you go about hanging out? I rarely see them, I guess I could try strike up some conversation and go from there when I do see around, thanks .

    Try going out and doing things your interested in maybe? Like join a dance class, or go and see some local live music or comedy. It might help you meet like minded people
