Similar Disimilarities

So I thought that college would be like a totally different ball game. It kind of is, I don't think I have met a high school boy who told me he was waiting for his finance to come out of class. Also I am enjoying a break simply because I don't have class. Also we are required to bring laptops to some classes. And having to walk up this huge hill to get to my new home. All of that is new.

But there are still kids sitting there bored and snapping their gum. We still have joking kids who will start a round of hangman on the board because the professor is late. Of course we all play along. And we still have all of that confusion of "where oh where shall I sit today" at lunch.

But it looks like it will be fine. I will avoid the people I am supposed to, raise my hand when appropriate and try to look like I know what I am doing.

I am Going To Miss...

Mountains that look like a movie back-drop.
the giggles of little sisters.
Calling up best friends for a drive when I need it.
Card game nights with my Grandparents.
TCBY esp. the white chocolate mousse.
My Books.
My Library.
Frost's Books.
My ward friends.
My ward leaders.
Not really having to do my laundry.
Not having to worry where my food will come from.
Talking about scriptures with my mother.
Going for drives with my father.
All of my stuffed animals.
Having mom around because she knows where everything is at all times.
My fleece blankets.

I'm SOOOO not ready for this.

Eleven Days

While at the drive-in movies with one of my friends I came to a realization. In less than two weeks I will be traveling across the country, leaving behind my family, friends and everything which is familiar to go to a college 2000 miles away, the campus of which I haven't ever seen.

What on EARTH have I got myself into???

I'm not ready to grow up, be mature, or responsible! I still forget to get my clothes out of the dryer when they are done and don't get me started on ironing. I love to spend all day in my pajamas, and color Disney Princess Coloring books. I love nap-time and fairy-tales and the occasional chocolate cupcake for breakfast. Also, the library in Buena Vista leaves much to be desired.

But the tickets are bought, tuition is paid, text books are ordered and I have 3 roommates who expect me to show up to school on the 25th. I have coaches waiting to see me, teachers awaiting my arivial and an admissions advisor who has helped so much in getting me here that I am pretty sure she would come to my house and drag me to college whether I wanted to go or not. So I may as well make the best of it.

Besides I can still bring my coloring books.
