Today is my first day at La Salle University in Philadelphia. It's been a rough day for me. I haven't met anyone. I said hi to a few people but none of it lead to anything further. I look around me and see all these people in groups and having a good time. It also seems I don't fit in here. I've seen many many jocks and my hall is compromised of jocks. As usual, I'm the odd egg out. It seems things have always been that way. I don't know if I'll ever make any friends here. I've had this issue in the past (I left my previous college after one semester because I was miserable there and too far from home.) I can't leave another school, I won't leave. I need an education. I've signed up for some community service and a trip to South Street (probably gonna be awkward and I'll walk by myself.) Clubs don't start for another week. If I don't meet anyone there then I don't know what I'll do. I just hope things get better. I hate staying in my room and crying because I feel so sorry/disappointed in myself.
