    Hey Wiggy,

    As Mary said, the best way is to take the initiative and ask someone to teach you something. I know that is hard to do, especially if you don't know anyone. But the longer you wait, the harder it will get. I've also been there. Once I was doing vacation work, where I literally sat and stared at my desk for 6 looooonnnng weeks... I got my computer that I was supposed to work on the day before my last day of work. It was torture! I'd rather work my ass off the whole day than sit and do nothing, because then your mind doesn't wander.

    Anyway, keep at it. You'll make some friends soon, I'm sure!
