My Expectations Were Too High
While I was in high school, I imagined college would be this happy, fun place. Sure, it would be hard, but it would also be a lot of fun and more importantly NO DRAMA! But when I got here, boy was I wrong!
It started out great. I had a good group of friends within the first weekend. Everyone was friendly. As the days and weeks wore on, my new "friends" started ignoring me and blowing me off. I would hang out with them, but they wouldn't really talk to me. About halfway through the semester, we went to a dance club and I met this guy from our school and we started going out practically the next day. I was in an "open relationship" with my boyfriend from home, but they got all mad at me for cheating on him, though I didn't do anything with the new guy. They ignored me even more, but I didn't care as much because I had my new boyfriend. Then it was the weekend of my roommates birthday. Her parents had sent her money to take people out to eat and she took everyone in the group except for me because I had a boyfriend!
Thankfully I was able to find new people to hang out with, and I switched rooms because my roommate's boyfriend and I weren't getting along (long story). My new roommate and I were very close friends, but then she decided not to come back this semester. I got another friend to move in with me, but some crap happened on the boyfriend end of things. He broke up with me the day we came back from winter break because he didn't want to be in any relationship right now. That was ok with me really because it took away a lot of stress for me, and it was the fresh start of a new semester and all. We continued being good friends. Then, after returning to school I sensed something weird was up with him. It turns out, as he later told me, that he hooked up with this girl over the weekend, once drunk, once sober, though he didn't like her. She has sinced bullied me because she thinks him and I shouldn't be friends. Him and keep going on this roller coaster of getting along-fighting-getting along. For example, he is now "engaged" on Facebook to this girl who is friends with the girl he hooked up with.
Honestly, I get good grades and I don't really mind the classes, it's just I hate the people. I would like to go to a commuter school next year because college is too expensive and too important to have dumb people distract me from my schoolwork.
