flankdubtechnojazz is determined to do better this year
Sunday night saw the start of my university fresher’s week/fortnight. 7-14 days of late nights, drinking excessively, dancing, bars, clubs, a bit of student induction and meeting new people. We’re only part way through and I’m already kicking myself for not being more confident. It’s so frustrating because I want to make new friends and be sociable but after just a few nights of this, I’m too tired to work up the courage to talk to new people. And one of my housemates goes about it with such ease that I’ve begun to resent him, he just wanders up to someone, talks to them for a bit, and gets their number. I feel so awkward just standing there in the clubs etc, even if I’m drinking, but I don’t know what to do anymore.
