I suppose I’m both excited and nervous to start this new chapter of my life, and I’m sure there are others out there like me who feel the same. Here’s one thing about life: it moves on, whether you’re prepared or not. For my case, the most I can do now is keep my grades up and hope I receive scholarships that will help me reach the rest of the goals on my Life Checklist. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life, it’s that change is scary. The future is scary—but it’s not always bad. Sometimes we need to take small leaps of faith to go where we want to go in life, and that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with that. My journey to university has only begun. I may be nervous to find out what my future holds for me, but at the same time, I’m optimistic. I’m sure I’ll end up homesick on more than one occasion, but I know nothing will compare to the insurmountable amount of knowledge and experience the future will help me gain. I’m headed off to a new place to discover even more of myself than ever before, and for that, I’m ready.
