I need advice on what to do. I am currently in my first semestor of university. I moved out of my mom's house in august to a new city and thought i would be having the time of my life but i was sadly mistaken. Even though i've been here for a month i have not made any real friends. I talk to alot of people during classes and such but nothing other than that. I do not live in a dorm, i live with 3 other guys who happen to be 9 years older then me. If i am not in school or working i am in my room on my bed with my laptop surfing the internet, playing games or chatting to friends at home. I've become really depresssed. My grades have dropped drastically, i'm riding the curve. Then i get mad at myself for having such bad grades and try to punish myself in stupid little ways. I can't seem to get myself up in the mornings for school, the weather being -33 doesn't help either.
While i feel i want to go home they are a few things that make me releuctant. I would end up paying about 2 months of payments towards student loans. Not all that much but still. My mom's house is crowded as well. When i lived there i could never have privacy. I've gone from crowds of ppl to no one to talk to. And lastly, the university back home it's the greatest. It's usually ranked on of the worst in the country each year. I'm not sure if it means much but people constantly tell me that. I know tons of you are going to say join a club or a group but i am very shy and find it hard to make new friends.
So should i go back home and continue to go to university there. Or stick it out here and try to make some new friends. Any advice will help. Thanks in Advance.
