Keep in mind that nothing is bad in this World.

I am sorry, I think what you meant to say is nothing is good in this world!

Thank you all for your (heartfelt) answers I have been in Australia nearly three weeks now and I have not experienced any homesickness so far. I would love to have my family and friends from back home here, but I'd also love to be a millionaire - some things you just can't have right now and I can deal with that. I'm not struggling with the idea that they're so far away, the ones that matter are keeping in touch and I am doing my best to do that also.

I'm sure, though, that something will hit me a bit harder than that at some point, maybe when it's been months not weeks.

My main "problem" has been a lack of familiarity. I find it hard to relax and enjoy life without being familiar with most things and without having some familiar basics - even something as little as having my furniture from home here. My partner and I are living with his parents, they have plenty of room and we have plenty of privacy if needed (separate section of the house, very convenient) but nothing here is "mine" or from my home so I do have moments where I feel out of place. Wanting to organize my things but my boyfriend has literally one cabinet. Wanting to put up shelves but feeling like I have to ask first because it's not my house. It's not so much living on my own that I miss, though, I like the company a lot, it's just that I was used to having certain things (many of which I left behind) and then having them organized a certain way. I haven't quite settled down yet because of it.
