Leaving home for college or university will bring up many different emotions. It will be very hard going from seeing your family everyday when you get home from school, to seeing them every few weeks or even months. This would make me very homesick and sad because I would feel very alone all the time. I would especially miss seeing my brothers. Even though I don’t see them that much now, because Daygan and I both work, I always see them for a bit and they always make me laugh and put a smile on my face. Although it would be nice to have a break from the constant bugging I know that is something I will miss the most. I will also miss my few close friends very much and it will be very hard to adjust from going to school and seeing them, to going to school with many people you’ve never met. For me, the part I think will be the hardest is not seeing my dog. I love my dog more than anything and I will miss her dearly when I cannot see her as much anymore. I know she will miss me too when I’m gone and that makes me extremely sad. Although there are many parts about leaving that will be sad or scary there are also many things to look forward to. When I move out to go to college one of the first things I am going to do is get more ear piercings and a tattoo. I’ve wanted more piercings for a while but my mom told me when I move out I can finally get them. I also want to get a tattoo because I think it would be cool and by that time I will be 18 and able to get one by myself. I am looking forward to the freedom and independence of living on my own and taking on the responsibility to maintain a healthy, happy lifestyle. I always like meeting new people so going to college with lots of people would be a great opportunity to make new friends and meet new people. College or university can seem terrifying but it brings up so many new opportunities.
