The whole process for this trip has been an emotional roller coaster. These last few days in particular have had their ups and downs. Saying goodbye to my mom and boyfriend in a few hours is probably going to be one of the hardest parts of this entire trip. This will be the first time I’ll be away from home for an extended period of time. I lived on campus for a while, but even then I was only 15 minutes away and usually went home on the weekends. All other trips I have been on have been with my family, or weren’t longer than a week.
I spent all of Saturday and Sunday with my mom and boyfriend, and Sunday morning I even went out to breakfast with my whole family, so it was super nice that I got to hang out with everybody before I left. However, yesterday my mom and boyfriend went to go see a movie and when watching the previews I began to realize how many cool movies were going to be coming out this summer and I wouldn’t be able to go see any of them with my mom and boyfriend. After the movie I couldn’t help but look at the clock and think that I only had a few hours left with them.
Then the nervousness begins to take over and I think, “I don’t want to go.” I begin to wonder what the hell ever made me believe that this was a good idea. However, I then force myself to remember that it’s not forever. It’s only four months. The last four months flew by for me, and I’m sure that with how busy I’ll be, these next four months will fly by even faster. It’s going to be a trip of a lifetime.
I think once I finally make it to my dorm I’ll feel a lot better. >.<
