…and I feel very conflicted, like being caught in the middle of a game of tug-o-war. On one hand, I see myself enjoying these next three months with the people around me, laughing, growing, and enjoying German culture. On the other hand, this will be the first time that I have been out of the country longer than a month. Sometimes the thought of it makes me short of breath and question the decision I made. It is never easy to try new things and step outside the comfort zone. Each side of me, pulling back and forth, back and forth…it never ends! I think back and remember one of my favorite books, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” That book taught me that I should take risks and live in the moment. So I guess I will do that. Armed with my ipod, friends, and some money, I am ready to see the world and learn about it as I teach myself along the way. More to follow.
