I am feeling a lot

I am feeling anxious

for moving to a new city for less than one year, to add to my degree

I am feeling apprehensive

about being unsure what my program entails, or what kinds of people I’ll meet

I am feeling empowered

for taking a step out of my comfort zone to improve my skills

I am feeling stupid

for leaving behind a place I’ve come to love, and friends I never wanted to leave

I am feeling sad

for having to close what has been an awesome chapter of my life

I am feeling scared

that my new chapter won’t even compare

I am feeling nervous

that I won’t be able to keep a fully open mind to my new circumstances because of my longing for the past

I am feeling tired

for not having slept much lately

I am feeling satisfied

for having been able to get together with many friends before leaving (though not all)

I am feeling happy

that my friends have promised me they will visit

I am feeling hopeful

that I will not be quickly (or slowly) replaced in their hearts and minds

I am feeling grateful

for these changes that scare me so; for this opportunity
