A Big Step

I’m very, very, very proud of myself today.

Why, you ask? WELL.

I SOCIALISED.

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!!

Go me!!!!!
