I know I'm going to be homesick this summer and I'm already physically sick about it. My summer job is a bit complicated and it involves leading a team (so, not in a position to make new bffs) in remote areas without cell reception or mail delivery. I've done this before and know I'm going to feel lonely and miss home. For the first time I will be leaving behind a loving boyfriend and I will be leaving the usual friends and family support network.
The job is only for 10 weeks and this is the last time I'm doing it so I just need to get through this summer. What can I do/tell myself?
