    I'm Terrified.

    I'm terrified. Partly because I leave for college in three short months. Partly because I have been experiencing a LOT of adult situations (ex. working 30+ hours a week, having to do my own laundry, make my own meals, etc.) But most of these things are because of the college...

    I Am Worried My Dreams Will Be Blown Away...
