I have moved around all my life due to my Dad's occupation. When I was a kid, it bothered me; always moving every two to three years and having to basically press the reset button on my life and start anew. As I've gotten older, now that I'm almost out of high school, (two-ish months!!)I find moving a great way to start fresh and experience new places.
I'm thankful for being exposed to so many different locations in my life, but I'm afraid. I'm afraid that when I go to college, I will get so stir crazy. I will be attending a school for four years in a row, the longest I've ever been anywhere in my whole life. I don't know how I'm going to handle being with the same people, in the same mid-sized, midwestern town for four years.
This is what I'm scared of; having that urge to move every few years. Because where would I settle down after I decide to get a job? All of the places I've been, I would never live in any of them. No way in **. I can't be in one place with the same people with no change of scenery for more than three years. There is no possible way.
I understand that study abroad and other programs are options, but those are so expensive...and it's just not the same.
I might as well just become a gypsy at this point. I have no clue what to do.
It would help too if I knew what I wanted to study in college. But that's so up in the air too.
**. This doesn't make much sense. I don't know what to do.
