When studying abroad, did you ever feel homesick? How did you handle it and make yourself feel better?

I had a couple of other friends who studied abroad the same semester that I did, and it helped me to exchange stories with them about our experiences and how we were feeling. I definitely felt homesick at times, but it helped a lot knowing that I wasn't the only one. We would cheer each other up with funny stories about our host countries and talk about what we missed from back home. It also helped me to think about all of the wonderful experiences that I was having while abroad. Looking through some of the pictures that I'd taken while there helped me remember why I decided to come and what I had already gained from the experience.
