b'I am a new freshman here, and after only three weeks I already feel Ive been away from home for too long. It is very far away. I havent made any good friends here yet and havent made much of any connection with my hallmates. No one else seems to miss home, and everyone here seems to be loving it but me. All I can think of is that I want to transfer to a college back home next year, but Im not sure if its worth it to give up a good Ivy League education.
