You're not the only one haha.. I haven't met anyone from Birkbeck IN PERSON yet, because I've only been joining the online stuff these past few days. Actually I don't think I'll go to the Birkbeck Cinema event because I've watched that film already.. However, I might go to the Students' Union Welcome event (meeting?) at 3pm tomorrow.

If I remember correctly it's one of the opportunities for the student union representatives to introduce themselves to newbies. I wanna go because I can just sit quietly at the back (or make new friends if I'm up for it). I'm sure you'll be fine eventually. It's normal to feel anxious.

Oh by the way, apart from getting to know the representatives, I think it would be good for me to attend because I hope to get the full university experience (instead of keeping myself away from student activities). Before the term gets busier, better see what others are up to lol
