figure out how to navigate this mess. So, tomorrow, I have to visit my advisor's home (I don't want to go) to meet new students. There are several issues here:

I am introverted and I have extreme anxiety around semi-large and large crowds. I don't like to talk often and that makes me seem cold. I see this a being a problem since I have to stay there for 3 hours.

The last issue is that my advisor lives far as hell! I don't drive and no buses go out that way. I have no money for a cab and my advisor told me to ask one of the newer students to drive me. I am uncomfortable with doing this to be honest. I don't know this student and while she seems nice, I don't want to be locked in staying for 3 hours with no way out.

Can I get out of this? Any advice?
