srsly though no not really i'm shy and awkward
Lol Oh gosh, you sound exactly like Tomoko from Watamote .

And the only way to overcome being shy is to talk to people. I used to be scared of talking to people because I thought everyone was constantly judging me and I thought everyone hated me for whatever reason. (Turns out that people just thought I was hard to approach because I was always quiet.) The biggest thing that helped me, though, was literally just throwing myself out there and starting conversations with people. Through this I learned that, yeah, people judge you, but it's literally for like 3 seconds, then they forget. Because of that realization I tried talking to more people and I even learned that people are generally pretty nice, at least where I'm from. But seriously, no one is gonna be like "Stop talking to me." unless they have some serious superiority issue or something. Remember that all of your fellow freshman are in the same boat as you, trying to figure out where they belong in the grand scheme of things so go out there and just talk to people.

I will say, though, that talking to girls is far easier than talking to guys, for me. The hardest part about starting a conversation with a girl is literally starting the conversation. Once it's started, you can have a VERY good conversation just by asking them about certain things they said and making little jokes. Btw, if you think of a joke just say it (as long as it's safe to say of course). But seriously, just say it, if they don't laugh then you can laugh a little and say "Whoops, I guess that wasn't funny." or something. That is guaranteed to at least get a smile because you're getting the point across that you're just a friendly person. Seriously, even if you don't think it's funny just say it.

When I was a freshman, I was talking to this girl in my calculus class and somehow we got to the subject of her water bottle. (I think we were talking about that because I had asked about if she heard about how bad water was on campus and she had said she heard about it which is why she was drinking water from water bottles only) Anyway, we were talking about her water bottle and the logo on it was "H2OK." The K was because I live in Oklahoma and OK is the state's initials or whatever. Anyway, I already knew why the K was there, but I went ahead and asked "Oh, what, does your water have potassium in it or something?" This is a nerdy joke because the elemental symbol of Potassium is K. Anyways, I said this thinking, "Oh, God, this is a terrible joke why am I saying this?" But, to my surprise, she found it pretty hilarious. So don't be afraid to joke around or anything; just come across as your usual friendly self and you'll be fine.

I don't try to make friends because if anything it stops you from making friends and gets you labeled as "that weird guy." I just try to not be a total twat or do anything stupid and it works well enough.

how can one possibly argue with that kind of backing power

You can be friendly without being overly friendly. Lol

Lol that implies that girls will just come up and talk to you, which they won't because they'll find you hard to approach since you never talk to anyone.

First class:

So my first day at University was not a good one.

To provide you all with some context, at Full Sail you need a badge around your neck at all times to identify who you are. Also, I live 6 miles away from the college so I either have the choice of riding my bike or taking a shuttle (fancy word for car that drives me there)

So, I live 6 miles away from the college. I don't like taking the shuttle because it has designated times that you need to go by. It gets you there an hour early and takes you home 15 minutes after the class is supposed to end. The reason why this is slightly flawed is the 15 minutes part. If a class goes on longer than the 15 minute time limit, I miss the shuttle and have to pay a fee. Which has happened.

Twice.

I decided to take my bike instead. Which ended up not working as well as I would have hoped because it was hot as fuck and I was sweating like a fucking cow. Not only that, but by the time I had realized I had forgotten my ID badge I was already at the school. SO. I had to go and get a temporary badge, which took about fifteen to twenty minutes to go from one building to the next and so on.

The worst part is I was sitting next to the biggest douche bag in the entire school. All he did the whole time was sit there with his headphones in and play loud ass music that I could hear almost plainly as if I was listening to it myself. Not only that, but he was freaking the fuck out, pretending to play the instruments he was hearing. Seriously, it looked like he was having a fucking seizure.

after that, I had a pleasant 30 minute ride home though. Sooo...

it wasn't all bad...?

what I did learn today though, was that I get access to expert tutorials for tons of software, that otherwise would cost money for me to use. I'm gonna be spending plenty of time learning how to use my new programs.

So, I go to class again on saturday, stay tuned for updates!

Man, you usually don't have time to worry about romantic relationships in college anyways, especially not since you're at ages 17-19 when you start. It's good to have some company here and there but you don't want anything or anybody holding you down.

People are easy to talk with, especially if you're able to sneak in a conversation or you know... if you're able to just walk up and start one by association of events. It gets easier each and every time.

At least for me it's easy.

I live about 6 miles away too, i gotta take the bus (about a 40 min ride). And yeah the schedules kinda suck, i'm there like an hour early sometimes or i ihave to wait like half an hour for the bus to take me back. And i too do the air instrument stuff ;~; but i try to do it discreetly and i don't put the music loud so people will just think i'm fidgeting.
You're badge thing sucks though. We don't need our IDs for anything pretty much except free bus fair

I take the shuttles as well, but I don't live that far away from the campus since the apartments I stay in are technically school apartments. At my uni though they have all the freshman stay on campus in the dorms. It's pretty convenient for learning what's what on campus and getting to know people, so I thought it was something all universities do, but I guess not.
