So I am officially moving to Pennsylvania in one week on August 12!

I'm simultaneously very excited and very nervous. This is the first time I'll really be living on my own, so I think I'm justifiably freaked out.

On the bright side, I'm not going to have to worry about money. I took out some federal loans through Villanova Law to cover my housing and living costs (BECAUSE I HAVE A FULL TUITION SCHOLARSHIP TO LAW SCHOOL BOO-FUCKING-YAH), and my parents and I did the math and I should be comfortably set. I'm going to be living in a nice building with good reviews that's popular with Villanova law students and seniors, so I'll have people to meet. I live close to the train station, so getting to class won't be a problem and I can head into Philadelphia on the weekend. There are various shops (there's a fucking DSW half a block away JACKPOT) and restaurants all in walking distance, plus a Citizens Bank and a CVS and a goddamn Trader Joe's (*worships*) so I'm not going to starve. I bought a nice mattress at a decent price as well as a super-awesome-comfy loveseat that folds out into a twin bed so I can have guests over, and most of the rest of my furniture is stuff my parents put in storage because we had no room for it in the Cape house. I'm set.

I guess my biggest worry is making friends with people who will share my interests beyond studying law and who I can hang out with outside class. I'm happiest hanging out with one, two, three other people than a large crowd, so I don't intend to party, and I tend to be a little quiet and shy when first meeting people, but I hope I can overcome that to make new friends.

In the meantime, I've been packing and making lists (I pretty much have finalized which books I'll be bringing with me), and also discovered a REALLY perfumery called Delightful Rot that does geeky and nerdy themed perfume; I bought ten samples from them for dirt cheap and I received my package on Thursday, and I've slowly been testing each out. I'll try to remember to post some reviews for them a bit later. :3

Good luck sweetie! Living on your own is fantastic, but it does mean you have to pay your own bills. ;) Enjoy the peace and quiet (unless you have noisy neighbors).

:) Thanks, Dusk, I appreciate it. And yup, not looking forward to paying bills, but I did factor those in when I was figuring out how much I request in loans from Villanova, so it's not going to be too much a shock. (Also definitely hoping I have quiet neighbors.)
