Hey kpop family. I noticed a lot of you are in college or starting college soon and I'd really appreciate some advice.
Im extremely nervous and it's giving me an anxiety attack even though I still have a week of summer. I'm going to a college 2 hours or more from where I used to live because I decided I didn't want to see anyone from that town ever again due to a lot of bad memories. But I'm feeling really upset because this is my first time away from my long time best friend of 5 or 6 years, besides a short time in junior year but I missed her so much I moved back to the school. I'm also very scared of not making friends, having people hate me, and most of all.... embarassing myself. I really and truly want to make friends and my internet friend has been in college for a year and still hasn't made a friend and my best friend said no one talked to her today. I'm really bad at talking to people because I'm shy and extremly socially awkward, plus I've gone to school with the same people for 9 years or so. I don't know how to socialize beyond the internet. I'm also worried about my workload and studying, I never studied in high school and I'm not sure how to. I'm just so freaked out about embarassment to the point of the backpack I chose freaking me out.
Any advice on how to calm college freshman nerves or make friends in college besides clubs (there aren't many clubs at this college)?
