I’m very, very, very proud of myself today.
Why, you ask? WELL.
YES!!!!! I actually spent time with people my own age, and here’s the best part:
I ENJOYED IT!!!!!!!!
This is a huge step for me. I have pretty bad social anxiety, and I live in a country where I don’t speak the language.
Trust me, that’s a recipe for total self-inflicted isolation.
Today I went to help out at a school that teaches English. Basically, their method is just chatting to people in English, rather than having organised classes that make your mind go numb.
So all I did was talk, in the tiny bit of language I know mixed up with English. And it was really fun!
I’m in a pleasantly shocked daze.
And I’m proud!!
