Encouraging others to chase those “impossible dreams” — of Study Abroad!
Something important is about to happen. Like feeling a show about to start or falling. Like having a great dream five minutes before waking up.
And it isnâ€™t living in just this city that has made me happy and brave and curious… Studying abroad has taught me to be all of these things no matter where I am.
People from Prague always seen to have somewhere important to be. Like New York and other urban environments, there is so much going on in this city and very little time to strike up new relationships while in transit.
And my schedule has started to resemble the DivokÃ¡ Å Ã¡rka-bound 51 night tram at two in the morning: absolutely packed to the gills.
It’s like I’ve been living in a place with a stronger gravity compared to that of the US: going back home, a hundred pound weight will feel as light as a feather.
And although at times I feel weak or inadequate for being uncomfortable as I adjust to new environments (â€œWhy am I not okay right now?â€), I remind myself: Nick, if youâ€™re always comfortable, youâ€™re probably doing something wrong.
