It feel’s so good to be going to uni this year. Hopefully things with my mum will be good. I will be attending New York University, and will be majoring in English. I will actually miss being away from home, especially since I’ll be in the US.
Also it’ll be hard with the different time zones. NYU has provided me with a Publishing job. There is a big company in NY that is a publishing office and I’m excited to start writing my own books, and having people buy them.
“Honey, do you have everything packed for Monday?” my mom said whilst folding my clothes to put in my suit case.
“Yes, mum I do” I said with tears in my eyes.
“You know I’ll miss having you around, I can’t believe that you’re going to be so far away from me. Just promise me that you’ll stay on top of your studies, and that you call me everyday. You know I’m scared to watch you board that plan Ellie” She says looking me in the eyes so, I know that she means it.
“Mum you and dad can come and visit me whenever you have the chance. I suggested that you both move to NY with me, but you said that you couldn't leave home, and that you couldn't see yourself moving miles across the world. Mum it’s really hard to be going to uni in another country let alone staying here. It’s something new to try; don’t knock it till you try it” I say smiling.
I leave on Monday which is in 5 days. Leaving the country has always been a dream of mine, but I’m scared. I’m not going to know anybody, and I don’t know how the other's will treat me. Kind of wished my bestfriend would have thought about NYU instead of Studying Abroad in Spain.
Once, everything is packed and I double check I make sure that all of my furniture, and dorm room decor will be shipped in time, so I can set up my room. I will be also living by myself. It costed more to have my own room, but I think it will be worth it.
My dorm has it’s own bathroom, and Kitchen. I can put a washer and dryer in there, but I have to work to buy it.
