Starting to feel really nervous...plz help...

<p>Ok so I'm leaving to college in 10 days. The last couple of weeks I've been pretty excited about this, ill get to have a lot fun, meet new pple, be more independent...but the last couple of days it really started to hit me that I won't see my home, my parents, my lil sister, my pets for a while. </p>

<p>I've always been really close to my family and not being able to see them for a while is something that I'm not sure if I could get used too.</p>

<p>I know when we say goodbye its gona be terrible, they're all gona be crying, I'm gona try to hold my tears in but I just know that I won't be able too.</p>

<p>IDK how I'm going to get through this... =/</p>

<p>I'm pretty close with my family too, but I found that I didn't cry at all when they dropped me off at the airport. I was ready to leave, it may be the same with you.</p>

<p>And if it's not, that's okay too. A lot of people get really upset when they say goodbye to their families.</p>

<p>To just give it to you raw, you'll get over it. It'll hurt at first but you'll be fine.</p>

<p>You'll be fine. Find a group of friends, clubs, and whatnot and the time will pass quickly.</p>

<p>It's definitely going to feel weird and difficult at first, but once you get into a routine at school, it'll start to feel more and more like home. I know that probably sounds cheesy, but it will start to seem normal that you don't see your house/family/pets/etc for months at a time. As for feeling awful when you're saying goodbye, don't worry -- a lot of other kids will be feeling the same way. You'll be okay.</p>

<p>I'd add another lab class.</p>

<p>I know what you mean, man. I've been pretty much looking forward to moving away for college all throughout high school, and while I am very much ecstatic about it now that Friday is approaching, I feel a bit melancholic that I'll be leaving this region of the country. As I slowly pack, it's just too weird to continue sometimes because I just can't believe I'm finally moving away for college. Weirdest feeling ever. But I know I will be happy once the whole moving process is done with.</p>

<p>I wouldnt worry to much. Soon enough you'll be so drunk off your rocker you won't even remember how you got to college! Cheers!</p>

<p>I'm the exact same as you. But, you're suppose to be scared and nervous. It means you're coming from a great secure stable place. Knowing that, I know you can do it. Your family will alway be behind you</p>

<p>It's normal, but I PROMISE you'll get through it and it won't even be as bad as you think.</p>

<p>Like other people said, the sadness is a passing thing. Immersing myself in fun stuff was the best way for me to not think about home so much; it might help you, too.</p>

<p>I wouldn't start your first day of college off by crying with your parents</p>

<p>Eh, it happens. With me, it's like one person I don't even know starts crying, and the next minute I'm reaching for the tissues. Obviously, it varies from person to person.</p>

<p>It's normal, I think. I was waiting forever all summer counting down the days to leave for college, and now we left early this morning and moved in today. It does feel weird, especially those last few days, knowing "this is the last time I'm going to be here, do this, see these people, etc. until Thanksgiving" and all that, but you say goodbye, go through crazy move in day with crazy parents, and then they finally leave and go to their hotel for the night now and the craziness isn't as bad now...still recovering here as you can tell, it's been a long day (we left MN at 6 am, had to get up at 4:30am to finish packing and get ready, and now I'm still up here in IL). I still have things that aren't in their place yet in this dorm. It is weird, especially saying goodbye to people who aren't coming with to help you move. My little sister stayed home because she didn't want to go on a long drive, and I don't blame her for that, I understand it, but it was kind of weird saying goodbye this morning and she actually got up at 5:30am to do so...weird.</p>
