Default I Have Nowhere to Turn

Hi, I just started so you guys may not know much about me. To keep it short im a female college student who has a very hard time with social gatherings. So just to sum up my situation or just life at the moment, right now is my second semester of college and I have acquired a decent group of friends surprisingly one of these friends is my roommate. Lets just say she is a good roommate but I began to discover that her and a few of my other friends are exactly the people I tried to run away from back home (I went to an out of state college just to get away from home life and by the ppl back hoem I mean girls who rely on popularity) My roommate, lets call her Rhonda. Well Rhonda is one of those girls who thrive off the attention of others. She isnt a beauty queen or a mean girl but she can be very fake and she acts all happy and kind to others but me being here roommate I know she is not at all as kind as she seems. Anyways she has done some pretty low key shitty things to me. But yesterday was the last straw. Yesterday was a big concert at our college and since my sorority wanted ppl to collect cans I decided to pick some up and miss the performance. As soon as Rhonda and a couple of our other friend saw me, I had already gathered 6 bags full and she comes along and as always tries to take the spot light. She offers to carry some of my bags and suggests to the other girls that they should do a can hunt around campus. She ,of course being the leader, turns in most of my cans I gathered and doesnt directly say "she" gathered them but she says a very vague "we gathered them" but since she brought them into the sorority house everyone assumed it was her. I know its petty to be jealous that I didnt get much credit. Honestly I didnt do it for the credit, but what she did really pissed me off and I can't seem to act friendly towards whenever she comes to the room. If I forgive her she will only throw me aside as usually. If I drop her I will lose all my friends because she is like the groups fucking center piece. For example today, I was mad and didnt really say much to her so she and my other friend left me and went somewhere. Now I am here alone and really depressed because I dont really have real friends. I tried to go to my sorority for a pre party gathering but no one talked to me because I am so antisocial so that was a bust. I can't talk to my family because they are the triggers that make me even more depressed. I am just sitting alone in my dorm abandoned and after writing this I am crying. Sorry for whining I really just have no one to talk to and feel stuck in a situation where either I am getting pushed around or alone. Again I apologize for bad grammar and If I sound really sorry for myself

Are there any other people at college you'd be happy becoming friends with? People like that are best avoided if possible

there are a few but every time I try they sort of brush me off not out of meanness but because everyone has already created their own friend group

Are there any "loners" at college you could pal up with? Are you at college next year as well and would making new friends next September be an option and just stick it out with your current friends until then?

hang in there madison, college can be a real challenging place to make friends. have you joined any clubs yet? or found the easy social classes to make friends in? A shy friend of mine took a seminar on approach anxiety...it was for dating...but he found it useful for social situations in general. Perhaps that subject matter would be helpful to you?
