I’ve always been a big fan of change. I love it when life gets shaken up a bit and you’re forced to figure it all out. It’s new, it’s unknown, and it’s usually terrifying, but in the end it’s usually worth it. I would have never guessed I would be where I am. Across the world from my best friends and family, figuring out a new country, jobless, nearly broke, back in school…and to tell you the truth, I couldn’t be happier. In my case, taking the chance has been totally worth it. I’ve been incredibly humbled in this expereince. It’s been really hard in so many ways but I wouldn’t take any of it back. Even as I lay here in bed, with the flu, typing away, I’m thankful.
