I thought that maybe doing a little bit of legitimate blogging - just talking about my life and how I’m feeling, etc. - might be a good way for me to connect with you all a little bit more. Especially since a lot of you are probably going through very similar experiences!
As many of you may know, I’m moving on out of my house and moving in to college in less than a week. Although I’m so stoked to decorate my dorm, make new friends, take some rad classes, make new memories and hopefully just have a great experience in general I’m also nervous. I’m a huge homebody, and even though I’m staying in New York it’s not quite the same. My mom and I are extremely close, she’s my best friend and it’s definitely going to be weird being without her. I’m also going to miss my pets. My bunny, Fluffy, has been a part of my family for 9 years now so it’s hard to even remember a time when he wasn’t around. And now my new puppy Sammy who has been here for a few months now has gotten extremely attached to me - she won’t sleep in anyone else’s bed and follows me around everywhere. Of course I’m extremely attached to her too and the idea of not seeing her for weeks on end breaks my heart.
I suppose everyone gets back to school jitters though. Whether it’s college, high school, middle school - even little kids going to grade school. Everyone just wants to fit in with whatever crowd and have a good year.
So that being said - I hope you all have an awesome school year and are as stoked as I am to make some new friends + new memories. Heads up! We can do this.
