Jenny, please comment again, so I can save your email address.  I’ll be happy to chat with you on MSN messenger.   I’ll give you English speaking people I know in Santiago for you to talk with.  Chileans are very warm and loving.  Do you have a good host family?  Are you keeping busy?  I know it’s hard to be away from home, but if you go back home before Christmas, you’ll regret it for a long, long time.   Try to last until Summer break.  The weather is cold and rainy, and that doesn’t help your depression or culture shock.  Do you have any happy moments?  How much Spanish do you speak and understand?  Try to get through each day.  Remember that you really aren’t missing much at home.  Your family and friends will still be here waiting for you.  They’re cheering you on from up here.  Exchange students are special people.  You’re doing something that not many people can do.  Be proud of yourself.  A definition of bravery is being afraid, and going forward anyway.  I do want to help you.
