Wait, what? When did all of this happen? I barely had time to take off my cap and gown when, before I knew it, I was already unpacking my things into what would be my dorm for the next 2 days.
To be blunt, college life is going to be an adjustment. Orientation, aka a reality check, was eye-opening. To be quiet honest, I really don't know how I'm going to handle living far away. I really don't think it's been until right now that I realize how I was able to stay so calm before orientation. Being busy was my savior. It's when I have time to sit and think about things that I begin to overanalyze, and worry about what's going to come. Now that I'm back, I feel more nervous than ever about leaving for college. Regardless of the two months I have to mentally prepare, there is nothing that could possible ease my nerves about living with someone brand new, sharing a room the size of my closet, and cramming a whole floor of girls into one bathroom.
I really don't mean to sound like I'm complaining. I'm actually estatic for college. I know in the back of my head everyone at orientation was having the same thoughts as me, even if people were just trying to put on a calm front. Let's face it, I was doing the exact same thing. But after going through orientation, I now realize that only way to overcome this uncertainty is to face it and talk about it. That's exactly what I plan to do over the next two months.
