I have dropped out 3 times, most notably from USM. I dropped out once after 1st week there, and another time I didn’t even go to the university.
The first reason I dropped out because I am overwhelmed by the environment. Everything seems new and scary to me. I panicked and don’t know what to do. But now, I like new things, I like to explore things, I changed my mindset. I get excitement and nervousness when I do something new.
Second, I don’t have friends and don’t have intention to make friends. This leads me to be very lonely. I don’t have a support system. This time, I know how to network and make friends. Also, I have 3 friends studying at Unimas. I know how to engage conversation with strangers now. I seek to expand my social circle.
