Right so I've started a conservatoire (music college) this year in London.
I'm living in the student halls in a flat, however my flatmates are nice people but v boring and not my usual out going fun personality.
I do have friends in another flat so went there every night in freshers week as my flat didn't want to go to the events or go out. Although one of those in the flat plays the same instrument as me and I feel like he thinks there's a lot of jealousy/competition between us, or in other words I feel he really dislikes me. So I feel now freshers are over that I am intruding by going to their flat in the evenings to hang out (as I get such hate vibes from him). The flat below them are also nice people but I also feel like I'm intruding by going into their flat.
I guess because I'm spending 4-5 hours in a practise room with my
Instrument everyday I'm becoming quite isolated and I'm the kind of person who wants to go out and enjoy student life. I think spending the days alone and then the evenings in my room is getting me really down and I'm feeling v sad at night especially. I'm also beginning to really miss home too and my friends there.
Next year I can live with some friends so I'm hoping that all will work out and I can feel happy again because I am enjoying my degree but just not the social side sadly.
Please help, I really need to cheer the hell up as I think I'm starting to feel depressed which is something completely new for me.
This is how Oxbridge students do it.
