And it's time to go back to school

Thursday, January 03, 2013

As much as I hate to admit it, I actually really miss my family when I'm away at school and having been back for 3 weeks I feel like it's going to be harder this time then it was when I moved up there. We were never really a close family growing up, but I never really had any friends so I just mainly had my brother and sister.

But my main question is, Does it ever get any easier? When school first started, I didn't see my family again for nearly a month, and it wasn't that bad. But after I came home for thanksgiving at the beginning of October, it was really hard going back home. After that I found myself going home nearly every other weekend and it costs about 40$ roundtrip, which as a poor (and cheap) college student isn't really something i can afford.

    Throw yourself into your studies and exercise. Is there a free gym on campus, can you join it? You will be able to meet other people that are just as homesick as you at the gym. You are not the only one in college missing your family - seek other people out. You will be surprised how many homesick people are out there.
