One year abroad

It’s a around 1,5 years ago when I moved out of my shared flat in Germany. 1,5 years! It feels like it was only a couple of months ago. But it also feels like it’s ages ago and I seemed to be a different person that time. I think I did change in the past eighteen months. And that’s good.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
(George Bernard Shaw)

There are quite some things I learned while being abroad which I’d like to share with you.

Coming back home: Good resolutions

I have been living in Latvia and Norway the past year. Two countries I have never been before, two very different ones, two very different lifes I had. And shortly before I went back to Germany, I was thinking. A year abroad changes you, in my case it actually changed my life and my views on some things even more than I expected.

So I decided that there are some things I’d like to do different, some “good resolutions” for my time back in Germany. I have to admit, I’m already a month in Germany when I’m writing this now… So I hope I haven’t already forgot some of my resolutions ;)

Coming Home

People write about their experiences abroad – I saw that a lot of times. But a lot of people who lived abroad just stop writing when they’re back home. Do they just continue living like before? It feels difficult for me. Probably because I always was the type of person who is not good at letting things (or people) go.
