So, I've been accepted to 5 schools, been rejected by one, and ended up withdrawing two applications. I'm pretty happy. Only a couple of the schools are willing to give me a significant amount of money, but I've decided to go to the community college here. I still haven't completely applied yet, but I'm on it. ^_^ The thought of college still kind of frightens me, even though I will still be living with my parents. I guess I get afraid of failing. I know I have some good foundations for getting good grades, but its everything else that scares me. After I graduate from high school I'll have to start doing things for myself like earn money, (to this day I've never had a job), get places (only have taken city bus once since I was 5 and I don't know how to drive), and sooner or later I'll have to live on my own (my parents don't even let me sleep over friends homes). I feel like I'm kind of stuck. I look around and see a lot of other people, working, driving, talking about moving out, and I'm just here. Stuck. Not ready. I usually question what did I do wrong? I am not ready. At all. But I guess I have no choice but force myself to be ready. Fortunately, I'm not alone. I know I'll make it because:
1. I have Jesus, so I know I'll get through.
2. I have friends and family who will help me.
3. There's no way in hell I'm staying in my parents place after 2 years.
Still, it would help if I had an older sibling to also give me some advice. My parents situation growing up was COMPLETELY different than mine. It SUCKS being the eldest sibling sometimes!
Oh, well. That's life. Thanks to whoever reads this.
Have a blessed day! God Bless you!
