    you could spend the time talking to people and making friends?

    Easier said than done, queenmab.

    But, yeah, the start is always horrific. 99.9% it'll improve so stick in!

    I started on monday and I'm pretty happy at the moment. I did a one year course last year and I'm just starting the two year course so a few of my mates that did the one year are doing this course too. That means that I don't have to do the slightly scary hit and miss ritual of making new friends.

    I have lots more modules this year so I think that things are gonna be pretty hectic but hopefully they'll still be enough time for plenty of trips to the pub ;)

    I can't actually remember my very first day at college.

    My first proper day at college this year was today. It was shite. They've messed up the whole timetabling system - I've not met one second year who hasn't had something wrong with theirs, and they seem to be making very little effort to sort it out.

    And there are so many first years! I mean like... hundreds. Everywhere you go, you're clambering over little sixteen year old bodies. I swear it wasn't so bad last year. Can't wait for all the Christmas drop-outs to go. :thumb:

    it was only a suggestion :( ;)

    and i know it is easier said than done, but it is something that quite often needs to be done. i made one of my best friends EVER by just randomly talking to her. and vice versa for another friend.

    these people are new to him and should have no preconceptions. the longer he hides away from them, the more preconceptions they will have!

    i sometimes have trouble making friends, but on the whole i'm too confident nowadays to worry. he needs a confidence boost!
