    In my opinion, you're going back a little too much. You will begin to see home as an "escape", if you don't already. That is not healthy for this semester or your next few years. If I were you, I'd wait it out as long as I could and then go back.

    It's not that though. I don't know what it really but I've been able to catch up and sleep and see my friends at home which is nice. I'm not unhappy at uni, just a bit stressed and a lot of people I know go home every single weekend.

    It’s perfectly normal, I’m doing the same. Sometimes I go home Friday night and don’t come back until Tuesday. As long as you are happy at uni and going home isn’t getting in the way of your work then who cares? It’s half way through the year, everyone knows second semester sucks x

    As your OP has been deleted, I can't give you specific advice. However, I would say that part of the university experience is to stay in your university town/city at the weekends, so that you can socialise with your uni friends, go to the library, mooch around the shops etc. This can make you feel so much more relaxed, as you won't be rushing off home every weekend. The travel time to go home might start hindering your work (as I don't know how far this is, I'm just guessing here), and others will find it hard to integrate with you if you keep disappearing/are never around to do stuff. You don't want to start seeing going home as a crutch that you MUST do, as it's now part of a routine. Try to stay at least a few weekends in a row and see whether this makes you feel better.

    I've only been home once (for Christmas) in the nearly 5 months I've been at uni, so I know that it's possible!

    Most of my flat go home at the weekends and even if my friends don't, there's literally nothing to do at the weekends anyways...
    The next time I will be coming back home is for Mother's Day and then not again until Easter so it's not like it's every weekend.
