Okay, fill, some pointers:
Law Enforcement reads this board. Being stupid about drugs can and does lead to arrest. Today is as good a day to practice not being that stupid as any.
You don't "need" to find a "squad" ("squad"? who uses "squad"? LE?), you need to learn about how to camp on the playa. This board is full of tips, strategies, ideas, wisdom, and snark--dive in.
If, when you've studied up some, you still wish to find people to camp with, there are places on the board that can help. Study the theme camps threads from this and previous years. However, even if you get to the city all by your lonesome, about 10 minutes after you park you'll discover neighbors, many of whom are happy to help, many of whom would like to hang out with you. (These catagories are not the same...)
The whole idea of "right reasons" is repugnant to some of us. And declaring yourself to have them is a little...creepy, in my view. Others feel differently.
Start now, and not only will a lot of stuff happen in the next year, but you'll be much happier when you get there. (Okay, there's 1% chance otherwise, but close enough.)
