As we all know, moving away from home can often be difficult and challenging. Moving away from your childhood best friends and going somewhere where you know absolutely no one can be intimidating. However, you will always find a group of friends. I struggled with homesickness when I first moved to college even though I was an hour away from home. Now I am in my junior year of college and I look forward to coming back to school. I like being able to be nearby my best friends and being able to hang out with them in my free time. I do miss my family but with being only an hour away, I can go see them whenever I want too. It might be more difficult for others that cannot see their family as much however, it makes the time you can see them so much better!
