"Gone. The saddest word in the language. Any language." - Mark Slouka

I've been in Chicago for a little over a week now and I'm really loving it. Before I left for school, I was so nervous about being away from my friends and family which was strange for me because I have always been the type of person who never got homesick and always spent time away from my family. Looking back on how I was feeling, I realize that I was more scared to be on my own and try something completely different than what I knew and what I was comfortable with. When I had gone away before, it was only for a week or a few at a time - it was never for months. I had a bad bout of homesickness a few days ago, but other than that, I've been doing well. My incredible roommates have helped me transition. I'm so lucky that all of us get along. I seem to have really good luck with rooming situations - the other summer when I went to camp for three weeks, my roommates and I became best friends. I feel like it's going to be a similar situation with these girls. Overall, I'm really excited for what's to come within the next few months of my life.
