NaBloPoMo Day 13: Nervous

Why is is that some of the most happy days of our lives are also the most nerve-wracking?

During the last few years of high school, all I could think about was moving out and going to college. However, after the last item had been placed in the car I was surprised to find myself nervous.

Prior to college, I had never been away from home except for occasional sleepovers with friends.

I was most nervous about the dining hall (I’m a super pick eater and a vegetarian to boot!), and my room mate.

While the food wasn’t bad, the room mate turned out to be a disaster.

Despite being nervous, I now look back on those days as some of the best of my life thus far!
