When it came to thinking about college in high school, I was definitely the kid that was freaking out constantly. While my friends were laminating on the independence that they'd have or express how they were excited to go to all of the parties, my mind was swarmed by a whirlpool of vicious thoughts. I was worried, scared, and unsure. I could never understand how my friends were so excited when there have been the all too common stories of college students practically losing their minds. All of the hell and torment that I possibly had to deal with completely negated the fact that college life would be fun. Once graduation came and went, I was already feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders. When it came time for me to settle into my dorm, I was panicking. I was certain that I wasn't even going to make it past the first semester with my sanity in check.
