Making friends is difficult

So, it has been a lot harder lately for me to make friends than normal. I don't know why, but I've been having difficulty with that. I mean, yeah, I flirt with all the guys, but it's not getting me anywhere. I've been in school two and a half weeks, and I still don't feel like I fit in. Tuesdays and Thursdays are fine, because in between classes I can talk to Anna, and Daniel if he's at the institute building. But on Monday and Wednesdays, I don't know anyone who has breaks the same time as me, so I just kind of sit and observe people. It's really lonely, and frankly I'm getting sick of it. There isn't even anyone who has more than one class with me. It's not so bad, really, at school I just bring a book and be lonely. It really sucks on the weekends though, when I see on facebook what all my friends from high school are doing in their various locations away from here. And I'm sitting at home reading.
But the good thing is, tomorrow is Thursday, and that means that I'll see Daniel and Anna. And maybe flirt a little with Marc. We'll see what happens.
Today I was at school from 7:30 to 6:30. I had to stay late to take this really dumb english test thing, it basically analyzes how good I am at english now, and then again when I graduate to see how much ASU helped me. It was supposed to last two hours, it took me an hour. Because I write fast. Thank goodness! But the time slots they have available for it were really dumb, so my last class ended at 3:15, and the test didn't start until 5:30. But, for my psychology class, we have to do these research participation things, and we need four credits of them, but only two can be done online. So I managed to sign myself up for one of them in the time between, so it wasn't a complete waste. Still a long day though. But the test was a joke, it was so easy.
Well, that's all that's new in my life. Thanks for reading!

Lol, I like how you thank me for reading :)

Psych research participation is so fun. When I was a sophomore I worked on a communication study. That was awesome when it wasn't tedious (data entry does not lend itself to excitement).

Friends pop up in unlikely places!

I don't know how else to conclude it! I hate writing awkward last sentences. I found one that works, and I will use it for every ending now :)

The psych research was actually kind of dumb. They had me look at pictures of people for about a second, and then decide if they looked outgoing, friendly, organized, etc. It was kind of weird and random.

Very true! It's nice that I have somewhere likely to meet new people though. :)
