College is supposed to be fun right?

I've been at purdue for almost 5 weeks now, and half the time I'm absolutely miserable. I've made a ton of friends and I'm always surrounded by people but I feel lonely all the time. Everyone else is having the times of their lives and all I want is for everything to go back to how it was in high school.

  • It will get better. And, you'll remember college, not high school, as the best freaking years of your life... I wish I could go back to my college days..

  • College definately is like that in the beginning, I even felt like that more than once throughout my whole college career. It does get better though, give it some time, you'll hit a groove and it will be a great experience. I met my best friends in college and all my favorite memories are from when I was in school.

    I wish I was still there....

  • College is like that at the beginning, unless you're insanely outgoing.
    I bet a lot of the people who are "having the time of their lives" are actually pretending to, and better at pretending than you are.
    It's okay to be miserable, and it'll get better! You'll get to know people better, and deeper friendships will help your loneliness.

    You could also try your school counseling center - the counselors will listen to you (they get SO many people with your problem - and they can tell you that) and make you feel less alone in your misery.

    When things are really bad... either sleep, or curl up with a good (light reading!) book, some tea, and chocolate if it's your thing ;)
    Good luck!

    - Been there, done that, all better now.

  • you can never be lonely with dez nuts.
