I'm More Comfortable In My Dorm Than I Thought I'd Be
January 22, 2012 4:25pm CST
I spent my night in my dorm with four other girls and it went quite well. I was a bit homesick because I feel kind of lonely here. I have no friends or anything, but I mean, overall, I feel oddly comfortable. As if this place has been my home for awhile. Seems like that's a good thing, right? How was your first night in your dorm?

I'm sorry to hear that, Hatley. I hope you're not lonely in your retirement dorm!I feel lonely right now because I don't know anyone either, but I hope to make friends soon. I'm pretty friendly, so I'll just be myself and see what happens.

It's normal to feel homesick, especially if this is your first time to be away from your family. Try to make friends, so that you don't have to feel lonely anymore. But beware, choose your friends. I didn't have my dorm before i was in college, But i did have when i was reviewing for my board exam. It was my first time to be alone, I don't feel scared, i feel excited because i'm free at last. LOL. I felt comfortable in my room, i was alone, but not feeling lonely. I was busy reviewing. I only stayed there for 3 months and then i came back home. I didn't feel homesick or something, because i can do whatever i want. LOL.

I have a few experience as that time we need to change hostel every year so I have different roommates in different hostel every year. Usually we just have a chat and get to know each other. The last year I was there I was alone at that first night as my roommates leave the room once she placed her things there- not sure where she went to so I just meet her the next morning. Yeah, you will feel a little awkward but you will be fine after awhile~(^^)

I think I was like that too! My first dorm when I was 17 was in a different city, an hour and a half plane ride away. Although I missed my family, I also found sense of freedom which was a bit exciting for me. In a few days, I also felt really at home. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Glad you are comfortable. Going to new places can be scary. Seems like you fit right in. I remember when I was starting college, I was quite scared. I have never been in a hostel and I was missing home real bad. Once I start making friends, it was alright. Good Luck with college.

That is a good thing. I spent my first night in my apartment away from home for school listening to weird sounds and being a little scared. I knew my apartment wasnt in a very nice area but it was all i could afford at the time. When i lived with my grandparents for a year for university it was just like being at home. comfortable i knew where things were and i wasnt alone. I enjoyed that alot more.
