Just Arrived! - August 1st 2017, 11:01 PM

Hello! My name is Carrie and I am new here! I love anything and everything Marvel. As you can tell by my username, I also love books/reading. I am currently a Freshman in college, it hasn't even started yet but I am stressing. Let's not forget the fact that some people who I used to call my friend is also going there so yikes!! I love all types of music and movies, as of right now my two favorite movies are Singin In The Rain and Rebel Without A Cause! I've been struggling with myself for a while now, especially with the fact that I entered high school with five really close friends and left with one. I used to self harm but I haven't in a couple of months and that's a big accomplishment for me. I am hoping that this website can help me gather and maybe(?) find myself. Another anecdote, I love to travel although I have never even been to the Western United States, and I speak Chinese and am in the process of learning French!

hey there welcome carrie it sounds like we could get along do you like musicals much
ive always been a big music person, too
i can relate to what you said about your friends. My story, "The Psychotic Principal" features me and a close knit group of friends, set in (it is mostly based on true things) and i speak to very few of them (maybe 1 or 2) now

It's lovely to meet you!

I bet you'll do fine in college but if you need any advice you can message me! I'll be graduating with my Bachelor's in December so I'd like to think I have experience.

Hey, welcome to TH. I look forward to seeing you about and hearing all about your books! There's a great thread where you can post what you're currently reading so perhaps you can check that out and get to know other book fans here too.
If you need anything at all, give me a shout.

Welcome to TeenHelp, Carrie! While it's understandable to be nervous, honestly, college was some of the best times of my life. I really learned who I was and was able to heal from some things in the past during my time in university. I hope you have a great time! And either way, you have your TeenHelp family for support.

Yay! Someone that loves to read too. Reading is my favorite thing to do. TH actually has a book club (it's in the social groups) that you might be interested. It's more of a "If you get the time to read this book please share".

If you want to talk books feel free to message me. I read pretty much everything except romance.

What are some of your favorite books? Favorite Genre? Favorite Author?

Anyway, welcome to the site and I hope to see you around.

Also, college can be really scary but a lot of people end up enjoying their time and feel that it was the best time of their lives. Join clubs when you get to campus if you are nervous about meeting people.

Welcome to the site, Carrie! College can be scary and I think it's important you don't focus on the past issues you have with your former friends, and instead focus on what you have in front of you and make a new name for yourself. Best of luck, and if you need to reach out, don't hesitate!
