I Just Can't Get Excited For College
Hi all. I am just looking for some advice on my current situation that I just can't get excited for college. For some backstory, I did not get into my top school and it felt like it was meant to be at the time. I found a school that I was comfortable with and honestly I think I made the decision to go there just because I was done with the entire college process. It's a great school, but I am going random for rooming, know no one, and it is pretty far from home. I just can't find myself getting excited the way that my friends are and I just dread going and can't get it off my mind. Does anyone know what I can do to help fix this or just have any tips?12 replies
