    Mate stick at it out fella, most peolpe go through/have that feeling at first that i've spoken to. Once you've got essay's/places to be you'll be that busy your mind will just forget about homesickness and put it to one side. I'm at Chester also and certainly agree all the nights out have been great - especially School Disco evening. I'm bringing a football tomorrow to have a kick-about on the astro turf (meet new peolpe and that) join in if that's your thing. Are you going to Destiny also on Wednesday. Its Nathan btw

    Don't worry, almost everyone feels like that, they just don't want to tell anyone else because they're embarrassed. It's when we're alone with our thoughts that homesickness and loneliness strikes.
    You could try and make yourself as busy as possible to put the thoughts to the back of your mind but really you just have to accept that this is the way you're going to be feeling for a while and it won't last forever.
    Some people say to embrace homesickness as a good thing, because it shows you how much you love your home and your family.

    I've been at uni for 4 days now and go through periods of heart-wrenching homesickness. I thought I was completely alone and it seemed like everyone around me was adapting so easily and happily. But if you think about it, people are hardly going to be walking around in public when they're bawling their eyes out. People around you don't realise you're homesick just like you don't realise they are. I completely understand how you feel, like there's such a long stretch of what you assume can only be misery in front of you and you would do anything to just go back to your comfort zone, but that feeling does pass.
