Well, I am excited for you! I felt kind of the same way when I took off for Europe just beofre college started. It was, indeed, good to be with others at that time as I would have been nervous being by myself so far from home. As it was, being in such a large group, singing and orchestra, I had the opportunity to see so much with so many. You are getting to do the same and it will change your life and how you look at things. Good Luck!
