The friends I did make my first semester and even all of my freshmen year, I could have sworn that we would be traveling the country together and sharing apartments together. I thought that those were the friends I would go on adventures with. Well, the biggest adventure may have been going out to eat with them. It's not that we did like each other, but I feel that we weren't really as committed to the relationships to get to that "adventure" level, if that makes sense? I have to be honest, I was feeling pretty bad about myself, I was thinking "if these are the deepest relationships I'm going to make, then what am I even doing here!?"
The way I see it is that most freshmen are still trying to figure out who they are. People try to reinvent themselves when moving to a new town or starting a new school. And for most people, college is a great time to give yourself a makeover. But when everyone is reinventing themselves, it is hard to find people who you get along with; whose personalities go together.
You gain acquaintances your first semester of college, but you gain your real friends your sophomore year. At least, that's how it happened for me. So if you are in the same boat as I was my first year, don't worry, it does get better. Find out who you are first. That's when you find your true friends.
