My first thoughts: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHASDFASFAl!!!!!!!!!!!!@#%&$%^
^ that, my friends, is a mix of emotions: fear, excitement, sadness, … all of this is so unfathomable.
I fear being on my own, outside of my parents roof. I fear not being able to hold onto friendships that are so dear to me. I fear not being able to eat korean food. Honestly people, I fear that I am going to get FAT. (tech’s food legacy…)
I am excited to learn more about myself as a young woman and as a daughter of Christ. I am excited to meet new people and really branch out. I am excited to make so many memories with my beloved roomie, Ellen Pak! I am excited to eat at West End almost everyday. I am excited to discover what I want to do with my future. I am excited to be able to study what I WANT to study.I am excited to get out of NoVA. I am excited to stretch my faith. I am excited to be independent. I am excited to grow.
I am sad that I won’t have the privilege of seeing my best friends whenever I want to/ need to. I am sad because of the fact that some people in my life right now aren’t going to be a part of it a year from now. I am sad (although in many ways am excited) to be away from my parents. I am sad that I will only see baby Carson on breaks and holidays. I am sad to leave my shelter/bubble/second family, the ODPC yg. I am saddened by the realization that I am on my way in entering the real world.
