Recently, I've been BEYOND homesick. I'm not sure why, as I haven't felt like this at all since I first started university (I'm in my third year now). It feels like it's been so long since I was last at home, even though it's only been a month.

Yesterday, I finally got to see my mum again. We had the most lovely day ever in York. Although it was one of my best days in October, it made my homesickness so much worse! I'm now sat in my uni flat, alone, on an incredibly uncomfortable plastic chair, in a place that doesn't feel like a home to me. Don't get me wrong, I love this little flat. But nothing beats my cosy living room at home with my mum's baking and the fireplace burning and my large TV and cuddles with my dog and (probably the most important factor) socialisation. Because I currently live alone at uni, every evening is spent watching Netflix alone. Although it's a nice way to spend an evening, the novelty wears off when it's EVERY evening.

There isn't really a point to this blog post; I'm just venting my thoughts because I don't really have anyone to speak to when I'm down, so my blog is a good distraction. I'm enjoying my modules at uni, and I'm relatively happy living here, but I miss my family and my home and I'm already counting down the days until the Christmas break where I can spend lots of time there.

This is the loneliest I've ever felt in my life, and I think that's why I'm feeling so homesick. But I'll persevere because it won't be long until I can go back home to my family and finally relax.
