Have anxiety issues over making friends - page 3

I have one week until classes start for me. I know that many new nursing students start to feel anxious around this time. I am not so worried about the work, clinicals or anything like that. I'm... Read More

    Well, Krazykchan, you sound like a perfect person to build a stable long-term set of relationships in a virtual world such as Second Life, especially if you like WoW.


    I have a stable set and they're definitely not from Second Life. I'm not big into that either. Why waste time talking to people in a virtual world if you can't destroy enemies and level up at the same time?

    You're 24, an adult and in college. It's not like high school where you "need" friends to fit in and have a group to hang out with in between classes. I personally could care less if I make friends....yes I have made a few but not to where we talk on the phone or hang out outside of school. I'm there for ME and only ME! Friends, just as in high school is a distraction IMO. Get a puppy! Actually, a cat, they're easier for a nursing student to take care of.
    I have 2 cats.

    I always made strong bonds with the people in my clinical groups. Our clinicals were from 7:00 a.m. til 3:45 p.m. We preplanned together and helped each other out during the day. Try to be there for fellow classmates when they need help and hopefully they will be there for you when you need help. Good luck with school. It's hard but I loved it.

    I'm quiet too (but once you know me... BACK UP!!!)

    Anyhoo, I noticed something interesting.
    Students may not really start to talk to each other... until they are together in clinical.
    Clinicals can be scary and you're all in it together!
    It can create a bond.

    If you aren't really talking, at first, wait for clinicals to begin.

    Good luck!

    I think you may be surprised at the diversity of your nursing school and your study groups, if you give it all a chance. We had a huge range of ages of students (young 20s to 60s) in my class, and tons of variety of background experience. So many fascinating people. I don't think anyone ever talked about a manicure in our study group! Not sure how I ended up with the wonderful people I did, except that we sat near each other in our classes. By the end of our time together, we'd formed a really solid, smart, funny group of 6 people who met a lot to study. It started with just two of us quizzing each other in a student lounge area before a test, and before long, people were asking to join in. You'll find one smart, like minded person to study with, and it'll grow from there. It won't matter if they're sci-fi fans (like me). And we all went out to celebrate together after tests, or to lunch together. Our whole class was pretty tight by the end. Best wishes!

    I wouldn't play wow when i start NS, that game required you to keep on playing to be competitive. I think it would be awesome to have someone in my study group who plays wow so we have something to talk about

    I stated in a previous comment that I haven't played that game in years. It's just one that everyone knows so I used that as an example. I'm mingling in FF14 at the moment.
