Which College Will She Pick?
By notagraveyard on December 04, 2012
My 16 year old daughter has just decided to major in Criminal Justice. There are so many options there, I dont know how or what she will choose.
The thing that distresses me the most is that she is looking into a college in New York. Guess where we live? ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY, good ol' Cal-i-for-ni-a. Yep, she thinks she wants to go get a bite of the big apple. But we have apples here, heck, we have APPLE HILL only an hour away..........
I am not too worried right now, she still has a year and a half to go. There is a good school down south, UC Irvine, at least that is only 7 hours from here, sigh.
At least she wants to go to college, right? I am so proud of her, she has worked hard her whole life, and knows how hard college is going to be, and is still going to do it! (I'll keep you posted).
I try not to think about it too much, because when I do, I cant help it, I break down and start crying. How am I supposed to be able to talk to her about college when I start crying every time? I know it is good for her, and probably for me too, but she is my best friend, my numero uno, my cream in my coffee..........
Yes, I have other kids, but it really isnt the same, at least not yet. She has been my compadre since day one. I honestly dont know what I will do when she leaves home....... I guess I will probably become an online stalker. Maybe I can get a job or something? I here knitting is fun, maybe I will open a cupcake shop.......
