I'm not homesick yet. Is this normal?

Written at the end of May

I think I may have discovered I am someone who adjusts easily to change. In all honesty, there are not a lot of things back home that I couldn’t live without I’ve learned. Primarily, just people. Despite how “uncivilized” or how "third-world" people think Chile may be, I do have access to things and if not, there are usually substitutes. But these are the things I miss most:

1. my dog
2. bagels with cream cheese
3. real orange juice
4. convenience of having a car
5. friends & family
6. greenery & fresh air
