I'm currently enrolled in second semester CUNY Brooklyn college but I live in deeep Queens. Via subway, 2.5-3 hours. I, however, take the LIRR which is a new set of problems cause constant delays and hour train gaps.
I'm really outgoing and it's super easy for me to make acquaintances but it was always hard to make good friends. I can't even get on regular texting basis with a lot of people. Now with such a large distance, it's increasingly hard and I never get invited to places cause not only am I not good enough friends but it's just impractical with the distance and my studying. I'm extroverted so not having a lot of friends suddenly has made me really sad and I can't get work done. I just feel so alone the second I leave campus.
