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!!
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.
