I am going to be graduating next year, and frankly, it terrifies me. My mom is piling on the pressure to start looking at universities, and I have, but unfortunately, my province doesn't have too much to offer. As a result, I want to go to university out of province, but there's cons to that as well. The pros to going to university in my province are that I'd be able to come home for holidays/long weekends, and that it would be easier to manage Cali. The cons are that the universities come across as generic to me, and I want to get out of New Brunswick... not stay in it. The pros to going to university in Ontario are the new opportunities/people/friends and that the universities have higher rated psychology programs. The cons are that I'd be lucky to get home for Christmas and that bringing Cali with me would be up in the air. I want to ask my aunt if I'd be able to live with her, and possibly bring Cali with me. She has an ACD mix who she does agility with, so I would potentially be worried about their interactions. I think that Cali would really enjoy city life, and there'd be so much more to do in my free time with her. I'm going to ask my dad as well if he could take me there at one point this year for a week so that I could possibly get a taste of what it might be like. I'm just curious as to how everyone else handled leaving home for university/college and what their own situation was. If I didn't have Cali to worry about, I'd be gung ho for going to Ontario, but she is my one concern. I'm not one to get homesick so that isn't too big of a worry.
