What to do during Welcome Week at my uni?Watch
Socially, I'm starting university from rock bottom. I have no friends, my ex (and only friend) left me 6 months ago and therefore everyone I'll be meeting is brand new. I'm commuting because I live close to my uni.
Thing is, everything has gone online, and I really really wanted to leave the house for uni, because my conditions keep me from focusing properly (Obnoxious sibling, screaming parents, constantly being interrupted, routine always trampled on and not respected). I feel left out because I'm away from the opportunity of meeting others, and I feel like I have no choice but to miss out on what I looked forward to the most because of things out of my control.
What else can I do to try and make the most of it? I just wanna enjoy life for once when I hardly ever did and it feels like it only gets worse.

You should have never applied to a university close to home, in my opinion. You seem like the ideal person who needs a fresh start by going further afield and studying.

That's unfortunate but I can tell you now, if that was me i'd be gone. Best thing you can do is try and apply for accommodation if it's possible, because there is nothing worse than communting whilst at uni. With covid on top of that will make it even harder to socialise with people from your course and on campus.
This person is going to university, not school. I'm assuming she is atleast 18 and if so they are classed as an adult. I'm not sure what that comment was all about but i'm telling the OP the cold hard truth. If she was to leave and start uni in accomodation with a fresh start and no ''screaming parents'', I can guarantee you she will be happy.
