First off, I would like to thank my supporters, followers, and friends for visiting this blog, because it has been chosen to represent the CIEE/PPP organization on their website for this exchange year. Without you, it wouldn’t have been possible!

I have been here now for a month and, so far, I can see that I have matured greatly in just such a small amount of time. I am starting to understand things and see them from a different manner. I am not that shy anymore, when I meet others, talk to strangers, or mess up in front of people. Why? Why do we react to such things with embarrassment and not dwell and enjoy the cool, silly parts in life.

What is my point of this post?

Life is all about finding what makes you happy, do it, help others, and do all you can to help with no expectation for anything in return. Strive to do your best and most importantly

take advantage of opportunities presented to you.

Be grateful for what you have, because I am. What I do is every time I pick up my wallet I think of something I am grateful for, and when I take it out at night I think of something else. It really helps because

You just gotta stop and smell the roses my friend.

You just gotta stop and smell the roses 🙂

Best and Kind Regards,
