Post Good thoughts request
For my girl. She's having a tough time. Hopefully things start settling for her soon, but right now she's so homesick.

Hurting my heart. I just wish I could snap my fingers and make it better, I can't. You guys are the closest I have to that! lol

Post Re: Good thoughts request
thanks girls... i think her biggest thing is being isolated. not having a car. AND not working. work was good for that girl... i think once she makes a couple of friends, then she'll feel better about flagstaff. once she feels better about being there, then she'll wanna stay, and we can think about helping her with a car...

keep the good thoughts coming.

Post Re: Good thoughts request
It is tough to be the parent in that situation... we just want them to be happy and feel kind of helpless when there is nothing we can do. Hugs for you and her!

Hannah has been working at a camp all summer on the other side of the state. Because her college doesn't start until Mid September, they asked her if she could stay 2 extra weeks, but 90% of the staff (and 100% of her friends) are already gone so she is lonely and homesick... I have to talk her out of bailing and coming home almost every day... We want her to keep the commitment that she made to them... but it is hard not to just say "just come on home!"

Post Re: Good thoughts request
Bless her heart :( Sending tons of good thoughts to her! I can't imagine how hard it is for her to be so far from home and everything familiar and comforting.

I haven't said much but Garrett was having a tough time too...He's only 2 hours away but still feels completely shut off from family and friends. Football demands SO much of his time it's insane and honestly I think it's more than he was expecting. There was a couple days I literally felt like I was talking him off the ledge...he's adjusting more now but it's still tough. He came home yesterday morning and left early this morning and I cried for an hour after he left. I really just want to say COME HOME and have to keep reminding myself why he shouldn't.
One thing to Garrett's advantage is that his girlfriend moved to Knoxville right after graduation and she only lives 30 minutes from his school so he sees her more than us.

Another thought. Tell her to hang out in the student union. Lots of kids will study there. Good way to meet people. Does her dorm have a common area? I know it is hard to make new friends, I suck at it. Just thinking out loud here.

I'm saying a prayer for her, Aimee!! It will get better, but it's so hard in the meantime.

Mckenzie was really lucky to find a roommate who is extremely similar in almost every way. They started talking in February and had met in person/eaten out/shopped together at least three times before move-in day. They weren't extremely social the first week, but by the second week, the girls across the hall had befriended them, and now they are together all the time.

I agree with an earlier post from Candice....once she gets to know a few people in class, she'll feel more comfortable. She can study with them or go grab lunch together. I really hope the homesickness eases for her very soon. I will keep praying! :hug:

Post Re: Good thoughts request
thanks, girls... rhonda, the feeling of talking them off a ledge is a good description. she told me mornings were the hardest. this morning i text-yelled at her to GET. UP. MAKE. COFFEE. :) found another article about how this is temporary, and it will get easier. she wants to love it there, she just needs to find a couple of girls she clicks with, and it'll get easier. also, work. i think a part time job will help her, she thinks so too. only thing is, there's not really any on campus, and we make too much for her to get a work/study job, apparently. and the bus system isn't great, and she doesn't want to walk by herself late at night...

i told her we'll look at helping with a car once she settles in, and feels more comfortable.



oh, and she said the coffee helped this morning... ;) i told her to trust the mojo that is her momma. lol

Also, maybe a church college group or something like that would be a good place to meet other students.

Food services are almost always hiring. She should just stop by the food areas and ask. Amelia got her job mid-semester last year.

Everyone has a lot of good advise. Going away to school is the first real dose of being an adult for kids.

Good thoughts for her Aimee, hope she adjusts soon. Plenty of good advice here.:) Would it be okay if I sent her a card? Kind of an encouragement one? If so then pm me the address. BTW, it will most likely be store bought.:sigh:

I will, Kelly. She went to dinner with a bunch of girls tonight. Hoping she starts feeling better. She's getting out and making efforts. And her dad said tonight if a car will help her, he's on it.

Being in a part of the country where a car is essential, I agree that her having a car would do a lot to eliminate the isolation, and find a job.

If a car will help then it shall be ;)

I don't like the thought of her walking or riding a bicycle alone at night

Thanks for all the good thoughts for my girl... She's doing better. Still not loving college life but, dang, it takes a while to adjust, I keep telling her.

I'm thinking a vehicle will be very helpful, as transportation to a job, and as a way to have a bit of sanity in a crazy life...

I knew the dawgs were powerful. Thanks for all the good thoughts. Talked to her tonight and she's doing looooooooots better. That was the toughest thing I've dealt with since the terrible twos!!! That was a whole different kind of trouble, but was all encompassing too. lol

She's been telling me it's the party dorm. She didn't know it, but it is. Cops there quite a bit, for alcohol and pot. She just rolls her eyes and calls those kids idiots. Thank goodness she's not a partier! Don't know how it happened, but... Dang. I know how I was at her age! :oops:

Maybe she'll find a friend in another dorm and she can hang out there. They learn quickly who and where the parties are. Amelia avoids them as well. It is reassuring to know.

She went to a tie-dye party last night, then went back to her room & hung out with her roomie and a neighbor and they ordered pizza. Movie night for them... Tonight they're supposed to go get sushi for dinner together.
