Scared About Life

Location

I'm Scared. For the last eighteen years of our life we've known only what we are told, but after you are handed your diploma, you will forever be catapulted through what we call life. Unlike many of my friends I am one of few who show I am scared to leave behind everything I find familiar and safe. It seems everyone wants to leave their home, their sanctuary, their friends for a new life they know nothing about. I don't want to imagine everything different because I've never been okay with new experiences, but I will have to be because before I know it, I'll be walking into my dorm room with strange people all around me. I won't be able to walk downstairs to see my parents, or drive five minutes to see my friend. I will have to learn a new way to live and to be honest, I'm Scared.
