    My first college class of the semester!!!

    Advertisements
    So I have my first college class tonight. College Algebra , which I will fail, for sure. I noticed that in most of my college classes I don't talk to anyone and I sit away from everyone and don't initiate conversation. I hate that! Everyone thinks I am an uber bitch but I just am really shy in the classroom. I even get nervous answering questions and in real life I'm not that shy at all!!!!

    I want to be more social! Is anyone else antisocial in the classroom?

    I'm totally antisocial in the classroom. Honestly, if no one talks to me, I won't talk at all. I'm primarily concerned with getting my work done and understanding the material. I'm not there to make friends. I have made some friends in the past year, but it's not something I try to accomplish or anything. Maybe that makes me a bitch, but I'm not concerned with changing my ways.

    I honestly get so nervous walking into my classroom every time. I normally bring a book so I don't have to make eye contact with anyone. I wrote all of db's letters during our breaks and stuff because when people would talk I didn't know how to get in the conversation . Pathetic!

    I totally agree. I don't use it as a meeting ground for friends. However in more social classrooms it would be nice to get into the discussion. It's especially weird when we have to group up. I'm actually friendly IN the group but outside I don't talk to any of them. I feel so bad.

    Oh man those are the worst. I get so red and I have a stuttering problem because I talk too fast!!! I have to rehearse what I am going to say, like in public speaking!

    Me too! I'm sure people probably think I'm a bitch or I think I'm better than everyone, but I'm just so shy.

    Thanks! I can do BASIC algebra but I remember I tried taking this class online and it KICKED MY ASS. I felt like such an idiot and I had to drop it because online=teaching yourself. Not happening, there. What about pre-calc stuff? It delves into that a bunch.
