I can probably count only a handful of people I’ve met that are actually under a list of people I trust, versus acquaintances.
At my new college, it’s different. I feel more alone than ever, even though it’s smaller and we have classes with the same people. In fact, I think that makes it worse. There are nice people, but I’m not sure if any of it will develop into meaningful friendships. I am good friends with one girl, but she’s an international student, so we do have some language restrictions that doesn’t let us converse beyond certain topics (topics that require much pondering and debate). 6 years ago
This is a hard goal but I guess I’ve kind of done it.
I made two amazing friends my second year of university. One has moved to Oregon so I hardly ever talk to him now and one is now my business partner.
Nanowrimo has opened up me to a lot of new people and although we are scattered around the world, they are no less meaningful. I count them into this goal because I met them while in university. :D 7 years ago
and my meaningful friends are the ones I hold on to. I have one good friend from elementary school, two best friends from 6th grade (7 year old friendships), my sister, a few other close friendships from high school, and a few others from down the road. But I want some from college, too.
It feels like friendship is a waste of time if its only on the superficial level, where you’re never completely trusting the other person, you don’t truly care, and you never have conversations about the things that really matter. I hope that I grow close to some of the people in college. 7 years ago
