Travelling While In First Year University
I notice that I almost always post about random, complicated, and probably stupid things. This one is no exception but I figure it'll be interesting to see what people think.
I'm going away to university in a couple weeks and for the first time I'll be living away from home (in residence though). I know that everyone says that you're on your own and you can make your own decisions, but I still feel like I'll be tethered to my over-bearing parents. At least, they're over-bearing when I'm not doing what they want.
And here's the thing. I want to go visit a friend in Newfoundland. Being that I'll be in Ontario, that's a bit of a distance. I have the funds for it (since I've been saving for this for a while) and I have the time (planning on using reading week in February). I know for sure that my parents will be entirely against it because they don't want me doing anything they don't approve and needless to say they don't approve of my going there. I don't care though, since I'm an adult now I can do what I want....right?
That's what I want to know your opinion on. Is it really that stupid to take a little trip there during the school year if I have the perfect opportunity? I wouldn't be missing anything other than one of too many trips home. I don't know, I'm just afraid of the lengths they'll go to to stop me.
Yes, I'm worried about my parents. -.-
