I'm extremely afraid to leave for college
Okay, so I just got back from freshman orientation last night (University at Buffalo) and it's about 7 hours away from where I live. I never visited the school before I committed but I heard that it was a great campus from friends. I went to orientation with my best friend (we're rooming together) and while I expected to feel excited and eager to go, I found myself growing very anxious instead. I thought that I was ready to leave home but I'm not even sure anymore. I know that if I make the last minute decision to go to a community college I'll wind up being bored. Living on campus sounds fun but I'm also really dreading the change. To be honest I've been crying about this since I got back last night and I have no idea what to do.8 replies
