At this point I have really mixed feelings. I am really enjoying what I am doing and this experience has been so great! I also really love Australia and of course enjoy speding time with my boyfriend and his family.
On the other hand I am finding myself getting a little home sick. Things I am missing are my family, friends, certain American foods, random appliances like my parents washing machine and dryer (I have a washing and drying machine to use but it’s just not the same) haha and I’m surprisingly really looking forward to my classes and for uni to resume. Oh and the sun… I really need to start coming to Australia during their summer.
Being involved in a lot of organizations at University I am also having to think about things I have to do before I get back and things to do once I am back. This has been harder than I expected because I’m half way across the world and I’m busier here than I thought I would be too.
Email, facebook, and skype have helped a lot keeping in touch with everyone so my home sickness isn’t really that bad but it does get to you every now and then… especially when you love mac and cheese and you can’t find the right cheese to make it.
