The Thing About Leaving…

Hello you magnificent creatures!

So I thought I’d just take a tiny break from the “What I Learned in High School” series to just blab about something I’ve been worried about for a long while. I know that most of you were/are super excited to head off to college and possibly even get away from your family for a while, but for me, that excitement is replaced with worry and anxiety. Sure, it’ll be fun in the long run to expand my horizons and meet new people, but personally, I am very very sheltered and dependent on my parents. I know that might sound insanely childish, but that’s honestly how I grew up and was raised!

My parents always held my hands tightly in everything that I did, so it is extremely difficult for me to make important decisions by myself, conjure up my own, concrete opinions, and generally function as a well thought-out human being.

I definitely have to make the hugest transition of my life in less than a month, and I couldn’t be more scared! Although I’ll only be four hours away, it’ll seem like I’m halfway around the world… I also have very severe trust issues and the inability to socialize, so I’ll probably end up more lonely, but nonetheless, I WILL TRY MY BEST to make new friends, learn more about myself, and expand myself to discover who “Phoebe Kim” really is.
I hope you all can have that incredible moment of realization as well!
