A little background info: i’m going to college out of state and for a few weeks before college starts, i’m living with my aunt and uncle in another state (not the one i’m from or the one where i’ll be attending school) besides my extended family members, i literally know only 4 people in the whole state. kinda depressing when you think about it.
Anyways, when i made this deal with my uncle, and when i was packing, and even when i was on the airplane leaving my hometown, the reality of the situation never quite dawned on me. Yes, i would have my own bedroom, my own bathroom, and be plenty provided for, but i never factored in the loneliness. Not that there aren’t enough people in my uncles house, and not that i don’t love them, but having no close friends and too much spare time, one starts to feel the pains of homesickness. I honestly never thought that leaving home would be so hard but now its been 3 weeks since i’ve seen my parents, my little brother, my best friends in the whole world, and my darling cats…and dogs.
For only being my second post, it’s rather heartfelt, and kind of a downer. But, who cares? Nobodies forcing you to read this. If its too sad for you, you can leave (Not that you have to leave right away…or at all…)
