The first week of my freshman year I may have been the only one who was not homesick; and I didn't feel homesick until our laundry room in the basement flooded (for the first time). But this year is different. When I was at home I actually made attempts to spend time with my parents - because I actually wanted to. Weird, I know. My relationship with all of my parents (child of divorce) strengthened this past summer, and it was a lot tougher to leave.
