I know it sounds so dumb saying this since I’m literally 17 years old. But I’ll be 18 soon and college is right around the corner and honestly I’m slowly and quietly freaking out on the inside.
I know how this sounds to people who are actual adults with actual responsibilities. It’s not like i’m leaving high school to go raise a family and start paying a mortgage. But for the first time in my life, I’ll be paying for my education. Failing a class has actual repercussions and I’ll be solely responsible for my day to day life.
My older brother didn’t go to college so this is the first time my immediate family will be doing this. So it’s not only me, I’m sure my family is freaking out too because it’s so new to us.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely excited. I can’t wait to be independent and learn new things and people. These are things that I’ve always wanted to do so I’m really excited to finally being doing them.
I’m sure I’ll be posting more and more posts like this as college approaches. I’m always thinking about it so it’s gonna be a hot topic.
