homesick
urrrgh. I've been here for about 6 weeks, and i'm suddenly incredidibly homesick. I'm wondering why i'm doing this, i'm missing my family and friends terribly. I've been living in a different state from them for many years before moving here, so i thought i was fairly set.

It would seem not.

Tell me this is as bad as it gets and it goes away after some time?

How do others get around the blues, cos i've sure got it bad this weekend.

By the way, if you live in the US, there's a GREAT Australian store in Texas that delivers all over the US. I've bought heaps of stuff from them and it's always been good. If only there was a way to source Aussie beer though :(

Just found on the Wallabies site that they have video highlights footage of each game; www.rugby.com.au

Makes it a little easier missing those games :)

I'm so excited that I'm going to Australia for two weeks on the weekend. Can;t wait for that first meat pie. Or that first schooner of VB on King St.

sigh.

I liked this, from the Daily Show Guide To Democracy - in the section on Australia. (cross-posted to antipodeanblues)

So has anyone else ever gone to 'coolabah'? http://www.coolabah.com/welcome.cfm

I don't really find it very useful, but it has a few blogs and things on it - and occassionally event information for different cities.

SO here's a tip; everyone knows in the US that it's hard to establish yourself financially, because of the drama surrounding the Social Security Number. That makes it particularly hard to get that first credit card - but thankfully the American Australian Association have launched a card (http://www.americanaustralian.org/) specifically for Australians and New Zealanders - you can get it almost as soon as you arrive. I just got mine, and am now happily racking up more debt :)

Just a heads up for the American-based Aussies.

So, where do you all live?

EDIT: I live in Baltimore. Fells Point to be precise.
