Although I am a year away from transferring and moving out of my parent's back house, I have been doing lots of research on two schools. One you already know: San Francisco State University and the second: Humboldt State University.
When it comes to the environment, it goes without hesitation, Humboldt state warms my heart. It is where the Redwood trees linger, organic food and clothing, the pacific ocean nearby, located up North so it rains a lot, and a small town. Not to mention it's by the boarder of Oregon! San Fran is pretty.... opposite. However, I was looking forward to the schooling since they offer more Creative Writing courses. But the truth is I can not afford to go there and to be even more honest... if I can go to a school with an amazing climate for cheap and still get the same degree... uh, yeah. Therefore, I will be attending Humboldt State. I will be majoring in two subjects. Creative Writing, which falls under the Bachelor's of Arts, and Geography.
I am so excited but also extremely nervous. I've never been on my own and I am very much a baby inside.
Now for the sad news. In two months, my boyfriend is moving to Texas to live with his real dad (for many reasons that will remain private) and to go to school too. He will be attending UTEP. I'm happy for him but I'm also sad we are not able to share these moments together. I realize I need to be mature and know this will only better our future together. But shit. SHIT. It's going to be hard. He is the blood in my veins, my safe zone....
