200 Days Down - or: A Look at the Last Seven Months, the Purpose and the Future
200 Days Down. 100 Days Remaining.
Since my last post at the (almost) halfway mark, a lot has shifted.
I feel listless, depleted, tired and there is a bone-deep weariness that is hard to shake off.
I was always in favour of the full ten months, I can't even count how often I shot my mother down when she suggested I only go for half a year. And now I wish I had listened to her.
Don't get me wrong, I really love it here.
But I have accomplished what I came to do, even if this list was mostly unconscious.
In this list, kind of like a To-Do List, there were questions.
- Can I stand up for myself?
- Can I overcome adversity?
- Can I achieve my grades in a second language?
I will always cherish the memories and experiences gained here and will do my very best to not forget anything.
