It's getting close. Only about a week more, and then after Christmas break I'll come back to an empty house. I'm a little nervous, a little scared, a bit worried, and excited some. It's going to be different the next 3 months, that's for sure. Good? Hopefully. Lonely? Probably sometimes. Harder in some ways, easier in others. I'm not looking forward to those lonely moments, but I've got a back-up plan all figured out. Thankfully the dorms aren't that far away. I keep reassuring myself, "I'll be fine." 'Cause it's true, I will. I'll be fine.
