    I am moving into my college dorm this weekend

    and start classes on Monday. I am SO nervous but pretty excited at the same time! I have never lived away from home and I am away from all my friends at this school too, so it's going to be weird. I am a super shy person and am unsure about what living with a roommate who is a...

    In a couple weeks I'll move into student housing

    and begin class. After 12 years of school I'm extremely hesitant to return for a bachelor's degree. On the other hand I'm kind of excited for a fresh start and new experience. I just hope I'm able to be more social than i was in high school.

    After roughly 5 years

    since finishing high school, I'll be heading back this fall... if everything works out how it is supposed to. Going for nursing. Starting at my (mostly) local community college and work full time while doing one or two classes... I very much hope going to school will be easier...
