Tomorrow I am leaving for college. I have never spent a night away from home, except for a few days at camp and one sleepover. On school trips my dad would volunteer, and though he slept in the adult bedroom I knew he was close enough if I needed him. In a few hours we will be slipping into the packed CUV, heading to The City hours away. Though my best friend is there too, it won’t be the same. I have to say goodbye to my dogs, my room, and the family I love so much. It doesn’t really matter that I will be seeing them in a few weeks when I visit, it’s that they won’t be with me for this new adventure. At every change in my life my family was with me; tomorrow is the day they stop being there for every new thing in my life. Tomorrow is the beginning of nobody but me, and it all makes me very sad.
