I feel like I’m fitting in pretty well at work, and people seem to think I’m a lot younger than I am (someone today guessed 19...dang). That gives me hope that maybe, just MAYBE, I will fit in at college, if I keep my age under wraps until people get to know me? I have to admit, I’m pretty self conscious about being what’s considered a “mature student” and being a few/several years older than most of the other students that will be living in campus.
Fitting in has always been important to me because I was bullied so much when I was younger (especially in elementary school and junior high). Highschool wasn’t AS bad but I definitely noticed that I had a constant concern and awkwardness about being unliked or not fitting in. I think that’s why I didn’t do a lot of partying or anything in University, because I was so worried that I didn’t fit in, etc. My mom has it in her head that I’m going to live the Hollywood version of college life this time around, and seems to want me to. I think, I mean, I know that she wants what’s best for me, and for me to feel fulfilled but it feels like she will be pushing me towards socialization, and I’m not entirely sure that I’m comfortable with that notion, or at least, not in a major way.
