Your friends may want you to be the anchor to their social circle, but you can say no nicely. There are things you want to accomplish that look small to others but are important to you. Be friendly and do them. In autumn, you may meet an older person who has seen all this before. Learn from each other. You could have the opportunity for a long trip or even relocate for work in the winter, but the decision is yours. February may not feel very rosy, but many good things are happening under wraps. The last month may go out in a blaze of happy, lucky communication and renewed contacts.
