The Night Before


Tonight is the last night that I will sleep in my bed, in this house where I have been since 1991. I have no idea how long I’ll last at university, maybe only a matter of days, but tomorrow I will be there. Obviously I am nervous, most people in this situation would be, let alone those with anxiety but I’m not in full on panic mode. Hopefully this will last long enough for me to get some sleep, though I’m not counting on it.

My first anxious thought about things is to do with the amount of stuff I’m taking. It seems like I have an awful lot of boxes and bags, although I have only got the essential stuff (we need to take all of our own kitchen stuff like pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc) and clothes, a few books and my laptop. I don’t want people to laugh at me for bringing huge amounts or to make fun of the stuff I have 😦 

I have more to write but I can’t concentrate very well at the moment. I may write more later on.

    Good luck! I hope you like it. 🙂
    Don’t worry about the amount of stuff you have, some people bring more some people bring less, but it’s really no issue (at least where I am). And the stuff you have? The people worth being friends with won’t make fun of it, and I doubt anyone will at all.

    It will be fine. 🙂

    wen i start university i had much more stuff than i ever needed. i had to send stuff home. i guess not knowing how things will go makes it hard to pack. just ensure u have essentials … sheets, toiletries, etc

    good luck

    Yeah I agree, the amount of stuff you bring really won’t matter. There will always be people who bring more. I had SO much stuff including a large collection of shoes! So nobody will ever really think you’re silly for bringing the essentials, and all your kicthen stuff will be safely stored in the kicten leaving you a bit more space
