You'll relax as time goes on. The more you worry about it, the harder it is. Most likely, someone will strike up a conversation with you. Just go with it, if you like the person.
Good luck in school. I respect the work lode you guys handle. My nephew is full time, too. I'm proud of him.
Well if your not that social, then the thing to do is wait for somebody to talk about something that you have interest in or that you can relate to, and jump in, that way they won't judge you and the conversation won't seem so awkward. =) Good luck with college i start sept 7th, so nervous...
Well ... you just started on here; yeah?
First thing to do is to relax; be careful not to put a strain upon yourself by feeling the *need* to open up. Communication is a skill (to a greater or lesser degree) and to some it is an art. Like anything else in life, it's something we learn to do. No-one can teach you to converse, but there are those who can help you to feel confident in yourself.
You have some great advice already here. I would only add that you take your time, don't feel pressure to do something you find difficult and consider that a smile, often-times, speaks volumes at stretegic times when there is a lull in the conversation and, often, causes the other person / people to take up the slack.
Good luck to you in College; and take your time.
Hello, I'm socc3rluv17...who are you? nice to meet you...I'm new around here, not to sure of things...
find common grounds, environments.
people of similar interests gather together (eventually).
get a routine meeting established (morning breakfast).
start small conversations, like, "hi. howzitgoin'".
before long, people will get familiar with your routine
and conversations will begin to flow.
