College Anxiety: It’s Time to be a Grown Up

Long time no talk, but here I am and back and better than ever. I wanted to apologize for not keeping up with the blog since starting college, but I need some time to focus on school and get accumulated. But here I am and boy oh boy do I have some stories for you! Before any of these stories though I want to talk about the beginning of school and how I adjusted.

Moving away from home was hard. The first couple of nights the only real friend I had was my direct roommate. I do admit, I cried a couple of times. I missed my home, my room, my bed, my family, and my friends. Then something great happened. My roommates and I started to get to know each other. It was like over night we became best friends. We expanded our group with amazing guy friends and before I knew it, I found a new family. Within weeks the suite became my new home, and I slowly found myself no longer wishing I was back in Jersey.

Weeks passed and I became engrossed in my school work. I realized that my major, Business, was hard. The classes were long and I found a lot of the information boring. I had a never ending stream of papers and presentations to complete. Slowly I started to get anxiety over my major and my classwork. I was nervous about my decision. Would I really be happy working in a business environment my entire life? It wasn’t until I opened about my fears to some fellow classmates that I realized I was not alone.

Eventually I got over this fear and am completely enjoying my time at school.  I made amazing friends and even more amazing memories. I can’t wait to share them all with you!
