Gimpyrks Posted August 30, 2011 Share Posted August 30, 2011 Hey everyone out in Ena world! I got the idea this morning to start a thread that people who are off to college for the first time can post their feelings, concerns, questions, etc and share their experience with other first time college students. I wanted to start this post because I know everyone says "your not alone everyone goes through this", but this thread will prove that and give people something to look forward to reading to. I guess I'll start This isn't my first year in college. I stayed at home for my first year and attended a community college while I decided what exactly I wanted to go to school for. Now I am half way accross the country living in an apartment and starting my animal science/pre vet bachelors degree on Sept. 6th. My biggest problem adjusting is not having anything to do until school starts. Sure I could go explore the city, but I have no one to do that with and even though I feel safe in this part of town I am not one to go out and just explore by myself. Today I got a job that I possibly start tomorrow morning, working at a horse barn. I love horses and all farm animals really so I am so excited. I know this is a way for me to meet people before school starts and these people also love horses. I am not really nervous about starting classes. I walked the campus with my mom before she left and we figured out where my classes are and where in the buildings. What I am nervous about is having to take a public bus from the apartments to school. Silly I know, I have taken a school bus before but a public bus is different and I have only ridden one one other time and my mom was the leader that day haha. My room-mate seems great. She is a fourth year student and seems to be very helpful and willing to help me adjust. I miss my home state and my sisters, grandparents, aunt, uncle, cat, dogs, and alpacas. I get over whelmed when I think that I am going to be spending at least the next three years here (minus vacations) and then after that I'm going to start my career. But then I remember that I have to take a step back and take it day by day. So lets here some stories! You don't have to be a first year college student, but lets share so people know for certain that they are not alone. Link to comment
