Keeping Your Friends Close

When I left to go to Uni, I felt a mixture of things; I was teeming with excitement (a new city! new nightlife! new people!), I couldn’t wait to hold my independence (hello, uninterrupted freedom), and I was proud I had gotten myself that far – but there was a strange hand of familiarity grabbing at me, and holding me back. And no, it wasn’t my mum not letting me breathe, my face squashed against her shoulder, whilst stuck in one of her immoveable goodbye hugs; it was a part of myself that just wasn’t sure how to handle leaving all of my friends and family behind.
