This part ist going to be the last installement of my series 'The Other Sides of a Year Abroad" and because I didn't find a good place to divide up the text, I am just going to post everything. This is going to be a very long blog post and you will need some time to get through it. I knew since I was writing the first part that I would like to talk about this topic. However, it was more difficult than I thought it was going to be.
Introversion and Social Anxiety If you haven't noticed through my former blog posts already, here I am, telling you once again that I'm a really introverted person and sometimes I think that I do have some minor case of social anxiety. After finding people who I became friends with so fast after entering university, I kind of thought that I was miraculously cured.
As you probably know, I studied in Tokyo for one year. I can say that it was quite an eventful year and it didn’t really go as expected. I am back in Germany now and I have a lot to say and to talk about, to the point where I don’t even know where to start. Last time I updated my blog, I wrote about the university’s ‘obsession’ with tests and exams. That didn’t change in the second semester.
To be honest, I hesitated to upload this post. I had to leave it for a while, but in the end I decided to upload it, otherwise you wouldn't be able to read it right at this moment. So it turned out that I in fact did not post as much as I said I wanted to. However, now that the first semester is over, I feel like writing about my thoughts again, since I do not really talk about those in my videos.
It has gotten a little quieter around here since I went to Japan. In the beginning I thought that I would post more frequently once I am in Japan, but of course university happened and above all of that I found a new hobby.
This might be a little bit unexpected for some, but as the title says already, I am going to live in Japan for one year starting this Sunday. I didn't want to announce it before I was 100% sure that I was going. I wanted to announce it officially after I arrived in Tokyo ...
