    I'm moving back into halls in second year and I'm worrying a little about it. I really didn't enjoy my first year. I fell out with my original group of friends who went out of their way to show how much they dislike me now, and I dropped out of the house I was going to live in with them. It was probably for the best but it made me feel really isolated and unhappy and then at my lowest point my long term boyfriend dumped me very suddenly. During second term I made a few close friends in my society (for whose support I am eternally grateful) I do but I have no solid large set of friends or "squad." By the end of the year I was very depressed and cried most days.
    I essentially have a fresh start in my new halls next year and I plan to be more involved in even more societies and meeting as many people as possible. I guess I'm looking for reassurance that the freshers won't think I'm weird because I'm in halls alone as a second year trying to make new friends with them especially because I'm shy at first and really insecure. Looking also for general advice from anyone else especially
    Kwho struggled with first year or moved into halls in second year etc! X

    Im moving back to halls for 4th year cos everyone I knew 3year course. I'm in non freshers halls tho but looking forward to cracking on with it tho. have no choice but to make a real effort to meet people societies and flat mates (would suck to graduate with no friends) so hopefully will graduate on a high
