29 days & counting

29 days and counting till I leave for Niagara to start school. Honestly is all feels so unreal! On one hand it seems like it’s so far away, yet approaching very fast. I was just getting used to being back in my hometown & now I have to pack up again. This time without the comfort of my family and everything that is familiar to me. It’s all very exciting and scary…mostly exiting though.¬†

This week has been so hectic with work and tying up all the final details before I go. The stress of tuition and moving is weighing heavily on my mind, but I know everything will work out and turn out great. So for now I will just enjoy my family for the short while I have left. So much to do, so little time!!

Roommates

As you may know (or not) I will be going away to school in a very short amount of time. The thought of actually starting school at a private university away from home is all so exciting and scary at the same time! I’m excited to meet new people, build new relationships & of course classes!! (I know…I’m one of the few people on the planet that actually likes learning) but I am also scared about being on my own. I have never been away from my family before & coming from an overly large family where I am constantly surrounded by family, it is going to be scary to have none of them.

Luckily I will not be the only person who feels this way, so there is some comfort that people will be able to relate. You know they say, “misery loves company”…Though I doubt I will be “miserable.” On a more exciting note, I have finally found out who my roommate is!! I actually have two, since they put me in a triple dorm room. One of them actually lives right here in Rochester, so i will be able to meet her and get to know her. I thought it would be a good idea to go dorm room shopping together, so that we could¬†collectively decide how our new space should look. I look forward to meeting her in person!

This is such an exciting/scary time in my life, but I would not change this for anything in the world.
