    I have been at uni since Sunday now but have only rang home once due to my mum sending me a text message. The phone call only lasted 4 minutes and I didn't get to talk to all of my close family. I have sort of tried to put it off as it makes me feel homesick when I think about contacting those at home, but I don't want them to think I'm abandoning them

    I have only been here 5 days but I have texted on all of those days and called on four. I feel very homesick at the moment. But once I am more involved, I am sure the amount of times will decrease.

    Phoned twice, emailed a few more. Well, it's really my mum emailing me telling me about home.

    I'm not homesick, strangely.

    It's really whatever feels best for you. Some will feel like calling everyday to start with others perhaps only once every few days. I've only called twice since i've moved in last saturday

    In 1st year I didn't ring that much. Towards the end of 2nd year, and now in 3rd year I ring all the time, at least every day. It just depends how close you are with your family.
