I really haven’t done well in preparing to go back to college, so I’m pretty stressed about it. I’m excited to see friends again, but it’s been so hard for me to keep up a relationship with them online, that I’m worried we might be distant at first. My classes are going to be a nightmare in some ways, because I didn’t end last semester well.
There’s so many things that I’m going to need to do in the next few weeks, and one of the only things I know of that will help me keep up with everything and handle all of that stress is going to be talking to my advisor a lot, getting back to counseling appts, and maybe talking to some sort of special advisor who specifically helps students make plans for staying on track with assignments and handling classes that were incompleted a previous semester or whatever because I think there’s some sort of advisor like that. Basically, I’m going to be trying to build up a support system with the more professional people in my life, not just with my friends. That’s the only way that I think I’ll be able to make it through this next semester without getting overwhelmed.

Thoughts anyone? Fears and concerns about going back to college, excitements about it, plans to deal with all of these college things, etc?
