I've been here for about a week now… well a week on Friday. I came a week early as a part of a special leadership program which was fun and really busy. Today is my day off though so I've had too much time to think, I'm getting a little homesick. Luckily for me my mom is coming up today to help with rearranging my room and hopefully she'll stay for a while, or maybe even spend the night (its a long drive back home)
What sucks about this though is after she leaves I feel like I'm going to be even more homesick. Like tomorrow I only have to help with movie in from 8-noon so after noon I've got no clue what I'm going to be doingand I feel like if I'm not constantly busy I'm going to get homesick- but really badly because my mom will be gone and its just scary to think that this is it, after this I only live at home for the summer and once I graduate I'm done, no more living at home ever. Its scary and sad because I'm really close with my family especially my mom and 9 year old brother.
After today I won't get to see them again until the 30th of August- 10 days doesn't sound like a lot but it can be an awful long time.
So any tips on keeping homesickness at bay or getting over it all together? Because right now I'm at the point where I would happily go home with my mom and stay foreverjust because I miss my family- and I've even been making friends here, I've had plans every night and every free second of my day so I'm sure that's helping but still… I need ideas because I haven't felt a serious depression like this creeping up on me in a long while..
