Transition Isn't Fun (and That's an Understatement)

The most bothersome thing at college is the first month of each semester. While I'm spending most of my time dealing with transition-related anxiety and getting organized, everyone else is establishing their social life. This seems to be the time period when students are the most open to meeting new people and joining clubs and whatnot, so by the time I'm mentally stable enough to make friends, I find myself facing crowds of "closed books" in a library of potentially awkward interactions.

But I suppose that locking myself away in my safe little dorm room for the first month is preferable to screwing up my reputation by acting strange in public...
