Being in a new place is always an adjustment and learning experience. Germany is no exception. Since being here, I’ve had days where I feel the high’s of seeing new things and navigating unfamiliar territory. There are other days where I feel the lows of not being able to understand everything. I feel the urge to make petty complaints about the lack of black hair products or specific foods I crave at the grocery store. It’s human nature to search for familiarity, right? The reality is that in foreign counties it’s not always that easy. All of these things have been great experiences in refining my character and exersizing a “glass-half-full” mentality.
