Sorry that I took a little break from these posts. I am starting them up again, so be prepared to learn new words!!

So the car is packed and ready to go tomorrow morning to bring me back to good old State College. This summer seemed to be a nice slow summer that lasted longer than usual but now, as I am preparing to head back to school, it seems to have flown by. Don’t get me wrong— I am so excited to head back to Penn State and start my senior year. But the end of this summer is essentially the end of summers where I will not be in the workforce or looking for a job… that’s intense. Even though I spent this summer working, there was still a sense of young freedom to it and I am not sure if I am ready to let go of that.
The only comfort that I can offer when it comes to this subject is the fact that everyone experiences this fear at some point in their life even if they do not realize it when it is happening. The fear of not being rich enough, or having enough friends, or making someone proud enough— there are a million ways that this fear can present itself and we just have to rebel against it knowing that fears are all psychological and we can overcome them.
