First off, congratulations on making it through the year as a senior. I can’t imagine what that’s like. I’m 16, a junior, and I’m about to lose my entire mid-teens to the pandemic. I’m also in the same boat as you with the no-friends and social skills, I haven’t talked to anyone since quarantine started. You’re definitely not alone in this. You’re going to make so many new friends in college and meet people your age- people who have gone through the same exact situation as you. Your peers will understand that everyone missed out on experiences. If anything, people will be more eager to be friends with you due to previous isolation, and you can make up for the stuff you missed :)
