I have been in very similar position. I understand the loneliness, wanting to have friends and wanting to fit it. It's even harder when don't have cousins or relatives or even a community center still bit hard trying to fit it. This makes it hard to have Muslims friends.

Within Western friends, we try to do things in order to fit it and not to be seen someone who is isolated or a loner because it hurts being a loner because when the teacher/lecturers have no interest in communicating with you as they do with other students like smiling and joking.

You're completely right. Its hard to have these conversation with my parents and I completely understanding you're feeling. I've grown up in Australia too well I got to Australia when I was 12 but still went through almost the same experience as you.

I will give my continuous response a bit later, because I have to do a little bit of thinking...

Salam @anonymous_life as you have mentioned  , you can't  change westernized  society likewise Australian society which is around you but on the other hand you still can have joy & interaction  with your  Australian  friends which you must overcome of your shyness then express your limitations according  to Islamic laws to them  in going out for party or dinner  or playing sport & etc  which if they are real friends then they will find a way to adopt their lifestyle with your limitations in order to you can hang out with them in weekends  or  other activities  & occasions .

Salam, Your not the only feel lonely, I have lost hips of friends when I graduated from school, do I feel sad about it, not that much why because you gotta remember we are here short time of life, we here to build ourselves a home for next world. I know hips of Muslims who they used to hang out with bad people for example drug dealers, they changed when they started to go mosque, pray, fast etc. My advice is go live in a Muslim suburb, go learn your deen. There is no excuse tomorrow in day of Judgment. I am  Surrounded with no Muslims at school, work etc. They offer me to eat I say I'm muslim only eat halal stuff etc, they start laughing but it's normal because they uneducated, I remember when I was at school the teacher ask me to dance or go swimming pool etc I say it's haram they start laughing due to I don't listen to songs or dance also don't go swimming pool because mixed genders. My deen is building everyday inshallah never stops. I have cousins here but I don't talk to them due to family problems. May Allah forgive them and put family back to the place. You don't need to copy someone because they do it.
