UM WOW WHAT A GREAT DAY WITH ndgo, spookerlymadhatter, peacepowerpie, and rojoke. oh my goodness, I needed this. You guys are the coolest and hanging out and making silly jokes, playing games, and sitting in a cramped car was amazing and I’m glad we got to hang out today. :,3
I dunno, last year at GVSU was really rough and I spent a lot of time by myself and found it hard to make friends. There were a lot of classes where people hit it off easily and I struggled a lot to talk to them so I kind of stopped trying halfway through the semester. It became a “get through the week and go home on the weekends so I have someone to talk to” deal. I think the kicker was I felt kind of loser because one of my drawing classes a group of people got excited and asked people to go to lunch as a group to bond and I wasn’t invited when I sat next to them and that was kind of the breaking point for me in that class so I just focused on becoming friends with the teacher instead. It was a fault on my end too though because I never really reached out to get to know people, because conversations are a two-way street. I dunno, this year feels a lot better and I’m talking to people and they’re listening and they strike up conversations first, so it’s getting better.
It was also because I had all my classes with Bre and I’ll talk when she’s around but the classes that we had separate I barely talked to people. I’ve gotten better in the last year, so there’s that! I’m trying to make friends this year, I swear.
I’m really thankful that I landed this work study job because a good friend of mine rec’d me for the job and I got in easy. But he told me that he chose me because I wouldn’t have any problems talking to people and I was super social and before class I ate lunch in my car instead of the cafeteria so I could avoid talking to people.
Maybe because I’ll be in a familiar campus it’ll be easier to talk to people because it’s an art building.
