If you’re struggling with acute onset MFAAAIN syndrome (My Friends Are Abroad And I’m Not), there is no definite cure but here are some possible coping techniques…
- Unfollow all the travel Instagram accounts you followed while abroad. It’s easier to heal when you’re not constantly reopening the wound.
- Get involved in a new activity on campus. If you’re trapped in suburban Connecticut you might as well make the most of your time.
- Create a support network. Sometimes it helps to know you’re not alone; find others who dream of eating churros in Madrid and navigating Venice’s Grand Canal.
