College, friends and stuff

Speaking with my parents about going to college and everything has made me slightly depressed. I've always thought it would be exciting, finally going away from this little place and the same old people but really, it also means being away from all of my friends and my family.
Somehow though, family would be easier to deal with, since I don't see them all that often anyway. It's the friends part that does me in.
I'd considered the option of living at home , at least for the first year, but the trip to Tilburg is at least 1 and a half hour spent in the train, and then another half an hour in a bus. Which sucks because then I would have to get out of bed super super early and I do not deal with little sleep well...
So that leaves the option of living with other students in a house, something that scares the shit out of me. Seriously, the thought of it alone is frightening. I'm afraid they won't understand my insanity at all and send me to a mental home or something.
Not getting along with strangers is something I excel in , in my own opinion. Yeah,I can talk to random people about random stuff, but I usually end up getting odd looks or feeling very superficial. Me and my friends, we discuss EVERYTHING. There is not a topic left untouched. And that is something special, something I don't think I can find in other people.
Also, the difference between people from different provinces is quite huge. The habits are so different and I always get the feeling other Dutch people look down upon the province I come from, but that may be just me. Communication could be another problem. Me and my friends, we have this own lingo for all different things, and of course there is streetlanguage that I don't understand and which some people from other provinces are fluent in. I can already picture a conversation in my head.
me;"Errr, wut?"
Yeahh... Anyway...I guess I'll have to suck it up and deal with it.
But that doesn't mean I'm going to have to like it.
Just because it makes me happy....

hey :) as someone who's in her last year of uni i hope i can shed some light on the matter for you!
moving away is scary at first but it's all part of the experience. i know a few people who lived at home/still live at home & they all feel they're missing out.
the wonderful thing about uni is that you'll meet all sorts of people & wont be judged for your 'insanity' at all!
plus you'll learn a lot about yourself etc.
so i'd consider it. it really isn't that scary once you're there! :)

and besides, you definitely do not wanna have to drag yourself out of bed earlier than you have to to catch a bus if you live at home! :p

Haha, I guess you are right! But it still scares me! I have to get up at 6.30 now most of the time and it would be 5.30 if I were to stay at home ...YIKES
Thanks for telling me this!
