I had a decent first semester of college, my suitemates and I get along but aren't bffs, I had pretty easy classes so my GPA was great, and I got into an a cappella group which I love. But still, now that I'm leaving home to fly back to school (I'm 15 hour away by car), I'm not excited about going back. Most of my friends from home are missing things about college and are excited to go back, but I like my life at home better where I have lots of friends and family. I can be myself completely without trying so hard to make friendships happen like I do at school. Also, I know when I get back to school I have to apply for housing next year and I have no idea who to room with. I have a few friends and people who I hang out with (mostly from a Cappella) but nothing like the friendships from home. I know I'm lucky to go to such a great academic and beautiful school, but I'm often lonely and anxious there.
