After a long break at home, I got back to New York City last night. I’m definitely excited to see my friends and begin my new classes, where I’ll be reading books like Inside Picture Books, by Ellen Handler Spitz, and Show Me A Story, edited by Leonard Marcus . I’m also missing my family already and feeling more homesickness than I remember from when I first moved here. But it hasn’t even been 24 hours so I guess that’s to be expected. To get back into the swing of things I’m going to check out this bookstore this afternoon. Time to start a new semester of writing, readings, and hopefully a lot of fun!

For experience, you feel more homesick when you go back than when you originally moved away. I don’t know why, but that’s the case. The homesickness gets worse and it takes a little longer t get rid of but then once it leaves you were like… why did I even feel like this in the first place?! Have fun! 🙂
Thank you so much! I’m glad I’m not alone in this.
Just noticed all my typos haha but yes you are not alone. In the last six months Ive had to live in 4 different states and homesickness always got worse after the initial move. Crazy huh? Lol
