im so scared...should I go? Watch
To be nervous about such a big thing is only natural, but you should look upon it as a blessing and an opportunity. I'm sure you'll love it.
When I first arrive in UK last Sept., I was really excited. In fact, all my collegues and I can't wait to get to UK.
There's pretty much nothing to worry about since most of the stuff are settled for you.. unlike the case where you have to do the planning - i.e. lone traveller.
Bright side, you've a host family to take care of you. When I first reach UK, I'm was a total stranger. But you'll get used to it. You will learn.
All the best
Do it. Make into a new world. You'll enjoy it one way or another.
I don't know if I should go study abroad in the UK for the year. The organization already found a host family for me in the west midlands, but I'm really nervous about going to a new school, new family, new country all the way from the U.S. And I dont even think I can back out now cause we already paid a lot and I'm worried because it's going to cost so much more money when I actually go there. Plus, I'll be living with strangers and going to a sixth form taking A-levels which is much more advanced than the education I'm used to in the U.S. I also am worried that I may get homesick. but at the same time I still want to go...it could be a great experience, and I was so excited before. But right now I'm really confused and nervous about going.
1) go, and it turns out to be amazing, and will be a brilliant life experience.
2) go, and it doesn't turn out to be as amazing. Which is what you're worrying about. But remember, nothing is usually as bad as you think it could ever be. And you say there's no way of backing out. If you get there, and you absolutely, absolutely hate it, it's not completely impossible to come back surely.
3) you don't go. You will have missed out on an opportunity, and people will say 'I can't believe you gave that up', but there will be other opportunities besides this one. But if you are always going to turn down opportunities out of nerves, then you're always going to have the same problem.
Nobody can tell you whether you should go or not because none of us can tell how you really feel. Think about it, talk to people you know about it, then decide. But whatever decision you make is probably not as massively important as you think it is.
