Aw sorry to hear that ozfozz---enjoy it up though! I think it's easy to let long distance relationships run their course and finally realize that things won't ever change and have no future.

We talked yesterday (well....texted) and things are okay between us. We just kinda acknowledged that it's better to end things now before we actually end up hating each other.

Thing is, I really wish he wouldn't comment on my FB stuff, totally cramping my single vibe :cool:

I'm about to officially begin preparing for snake ownership!

It'll definitely be a new experience for me because except the time my dad made a bin terrarium for an Eastern Brown when I was a kid, all of my pets have been furry things.

I'll be buying my own mini freezer for my room, then I'll need my tank, UTH, etc, and to narrower down a good but affordable breeder.

I think I'm leaning towards corns because they're so highly recommended for beginners and don't usually require much in terms of humidity adjustments and don't tend to be picky eaters but I'm also looking at Ball Pythons too.

Tried to look into Leo geckos to avoid the frozen rodent issue but my attention has truly been captured by little snake snoots. :D

Last week I moved to England to start a new job. So far the job is fine so far and I'm really liking it but the other employees have said stuff about the boss that has me worried. Nothing major and I want to see how things go before I judge. My main concern at the moment is that I was supposed to be moving into my new house (that the boss is organising) the day after I got here. There have been issues that I was made aware off and I'm staying with another employee that is extremely nice but I just want into my own home as soon as possible.

I never thought I would be homesick. I am a really independent person and I can look after myself. I was grand while I was working but the past two nights (my weekend off) I have done nothing but cry. All I want is to go home. So really what this long rambling post is trying to say is when does that fade? When do you stop crying because you want to see your family? When do you stop loving and dreading the phone calls because it makes you feel better and worse at the same time?

I don't want to give up. I want to stay and give this a good shot but really all I want is a hug from my granny or my mum and just to feel relaxed instead of stressed all the time.

You can unfollow them and you wont see stuff from them anymore, or delete their posts.

It gets easier! Especially once you can get moved into your own place and settled in.

I moved about 5 hours away from home a couple months ago, and while I miss everyone, it's so much easier now. I still look forward to visits home (I'm heading for a visit for a weekend at the end of this month actually), but I've been able to accept that this is my home now.

Thats a totally justifiable feeling. I think the majority of people who have homesickness to soms extent, it's definitely normal.

It may take some time getting use to, but, after awhile those feelings will start to dimmnish. Once things settle down, you start to get to know people, and once you do get your own place, things will start to feel better. In the end, I'm sure it'll be worth it, just keep strong. Relax if you need to. Get a drink. Go hiking (with the dogs). Or, do whatever you find comforting and/or relaxing.

(((((HUGS)))))) If you ever need to talk, about anything, just know my PM box is always open. I'm also on FB, so if you want, message me, and I'll give you my facebook.
