I don't feel as bad about things right now as I felt just after lunch when the family went home, though. I was a wreck. But then somebody randomly knocked on my door while I was hiding in there, so we went around the whole block knocking on people's doors and making awkward introductions; that cheered me up a bit, except for the one door at the end of a corridor when a naked guy popped out.
There's a second welcome party tomorrow night. I guess I should at least show willing even if I leave early (and I better not leave late, I think lectures start right away on that Monday o_o). Or maybe I can go with my one pre-existing friend on this entire campus? But she's in a different hall and apparently has made lots of buddies already... Sigh. I wish I knew how to join societies already. :( Where are all the other introverts?
