First day of uni and I got to the lecture early. I just sat down in a random seat inbetween the back and middle. Probably like 70 people came in after me and not one of them sat near me. Completely wrecked my confidence. I lost a lot of weight, got a new haircut, new clothes, was smiling etc. I was actually optimistic about uni and was hoping i'll be able to make friends unlike in school, because I heard all this sh*t like basically everyone is willing to talk on your first fews days but it couldn't be further from the truth so far.

We had to do an icebreaker activity with someone near us for a few minutes and I looked like an idiot because I had no one to do it with. I just watched as everyone else did it. We did a tour around campus and did stuff in some other rooms. The whole time not 1 person spoke to me. I tried initiating conversation with 2 people but they clearly weren't interested and it didn't go anywhere so it just made me give up trying for the whole day. Uni is looking like it's just gonna be a repeat of school isn't it? I'm never going to make friends. My social anxiety isn't even preventing it this time people just avoid me.

I have yeah but they don't start till next week. Kinda hard to still be optimistic after being avoided like the plague by my coursemates and flatmates
