Mixed feelings

As my departure approaches, the feeling of excitement expands. I have no desire to study (nevermind the fact I never had it), and all my thoughts are focused on what this summer has in store for me. I thought everyone around me shared the same feeling with me.
I was mistaken.
The person that made me realize I was wrong is my mom. Today she revealed to me not being happy about my trip at all. She said she wasn't happy when my visa got approved. I understand why: she is a mother. She is worried. She has lots of fears. But boy did her words hurt.
I am excited, yet there is some fear. I am not afraid of travelling far away from home. I am afraid of leaving her alone.
