Something I didn’t deal with on my other program was homesickness. My town is so closed in, and living at home was so frustrating, that getting out was freeing. I was ready to go.
Now, I’m still ready to go, but I have to leave my girlfriend behind. I didn’t have to deal with that before, and I’m very worried about it now. I know that next weekend there will be a lot of tears.
On my last program, my roommate was always super homesick. She called her parents and cried every day. I don’t want to feel that way, and I don’t want to make my new roommates uncomfortable because of that.
When I left Disneybwas when I got homesick. I cried when my friends left, and when I worked with characters for the last time. I remember sobbing on my last night there because they gave me a Magical Moment. Disney is a really great place to work at and be, and I know that it will help with the homesickness. But I’m still worried.
Does anyone know how to combat homesickness? I know that I will be out and about a lot, working, or playing in the parks, but it’s those down times that I’m worried about. When I don’t play or work.
If anyone has any ideas, that would be extremely helpful. Thanks, Disnerds!
