<p>I live on the east-coast (California) and I was wondering if anyone has been homesick during the school year. Do you visit home every now and then? What has it been like?</p>

<p>"I live on the east-coast (California)"</p>


<p>Ahrg, I mean west coast.</p>

<p>Well I don't know how it feels to live on the other coast for school but I did go to Northwestern U. last year (Illinois, about- but not quite halfway from the coasts) and I was originally from New Jersey. </p>

<p>I did get a bit homesick during the first couple of weeks but once you meet some good friends you'll be fine. Still keep in touch with your parents though; it's up to you how frequently- it doesn't have to be everyday. In fact, calling too frequently may only increase the homesickness.</p>

<p>I don't think you will get homesick... I call my parents everday and talk for around 30 minutes to an hour and I enjoy doing it because I still really like the area I'm from. So, that really helps!</p>

<p>My roommate is from california and he's doing fine, I guess... although, I don't talk to him about it.</p>

<p>If you're who I think you are, I was middle school friends with that roommate.</p>

<p>Not homesick yet... is there something wrong w/ me?? Although the prospect of visiting the beach and not being able to see the sun set over the ocean gives me the creeps.</p>

If you're who I think you are, I was middle school friends with that roommate.

probably not... he can't recall anyone</p>

<p>The first weeks of college are freaky. Then ur like - been there, done that. Where's the nasty-tastin dorm pizza?</p>
