I've been a bit homesick and down about the state of things lately. (I know, I know, what else is new?) I just have to keep reminding myself that this will be a positive experience for me. I'm on the way to making more friends, and (a lack) of friends here is the main reason I get glum at times. I think I inherited my grandma's perpetual negativity and try so hard to fight it but it's hard staying happy sometimes. I just have to remind myself to focus on the positive!
