Two weeks and three days. That's how long I have before I enroll at the University of Wales Lampeter. I'm terrified.
I understand that it isn't the same as some people who are going far away, like to Birmingham, as Lampeter about an hour and a half away? It's the whole university experience that I'm scared off. Am I doing the right course? Well it's one I love. Though, religious studies/philosophical studies isn't something I'm going to get to use practically after Uni. So will it be 3 years and £15,000+ down the drain? I don't know.
Will I make friends? I'm alone and love my own company, but I crave company and I'm a very social animal when it really comes down to it.
No doubt it'll go perfectly, and I'll love it, but I still have fears.
This is a small initiation. It's living independently from home for the first time, being self-providing. It's the créme de la créme of education at the moment. This is me dedicating myself to a dicipline. This is serious.
At the same time however, I welcome the challenge. Beyond the apprehension, I'm excited, I'm full of energy. And I'm not leaving all my friends (who'll be just a couple of bus rides away), I've still got Neil, who's going as well.
This is new.
Sorry for not writing about anything significant, blog buddies! I just need to find somewhere to say this.
