Hey! I don't have a lot of advice as I'm in first year too and I'm not loving it either so you're not alone. I'm just taking everything one day at a time. Hope things get better for you! x
How many societies/ clubs are you apart of?
I know what you mean, I didn’t think I’d be so lonely or find it so difficult to make friends, I have no idea what I’m going to do next year for accommodation. Btw, Sussex has a house hunt page on Facebook, I haven’t had much luck on it so far but it might be worth a look?
