    It's been three weeks since my move and I am officially homesick!! I'm proud of myself for making it this long and I knew it would hit me eventually. I am finally settled and into a routine. But today after school it kind of hit me that I just want to see my family and friends! :( So far, I'm liking my new job and location, I get along great with the staff, and everyone is very nice and helpful. But, nothing beats a good hug from people you love! I'm trying to stay positive and not let this get me down and in a negative attitude, but it's hard at the moment.

    Can't wait for Labor Day weekend...home I go!!!! :)

    Feeling homesick is awful. I remember those first weeks of college and being away from home for an extended time. Try to keep busy, and be sure to take care of yourself. Hope you soon are feeling better....:)

    I agree with using skype. I just moved to Abu Dhabi and while I haven't even been here a week yet I have used skype a few times to talk to my family and see them. I've also met a bunch of people and making friends definitely helps. I am waiting for the reality to hit me, though, because I am sure it is coming eventually.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    I'm about 5 hours from home. That's the farthest I've been from home on a permanent basis! One reason that I just now got homesick is that this is the first weekend that no one came here to visit me! My first two weekends I had visitors which helped a lot.
