❤ my host parents.

i hate to get mushy but i’m gonna! it was a year ago to this date that i began my great adventure and it’s been everything i expected and more than what i could have ever imagined. it has taught me how to persevere through hardship, loneliness, disappointment, discomfort, and frustration but at the same time i’ve learned how to keep trying when plans fall apart, maintain a smile in the midst of the most awkward and uncomfortable situation, to fly by the seat of my pants, be open to every possibility, and to realize that i am not in control of anything. with that said, i am so thankful for all of my friends and family back home for their continued love and support. i can’t even begin to tell you how much i truly appreciate all the gchats conversations, emails, letters, cards, packages, etc. whenever i have bad days, my wall of love serves as a reminder that people care. shuf it! (look at it!)
