So hard but so worth it. I think I burned every calorie I ate haha.
Then I did ANOTHER scary thing. I decided to order in Swedish. And it wasn't great, but I was understandable. And I'm really happy I tried.
I can now begin my career as an ice cream sculptor.
I've learned a lot of things on this trip but one of the biggest things I've learned is that I am capable. It doesn't mean I won't make mistakes or feel like I'm barely able to keep up, but I can do it. I know a lot of people my age are terrified for life after high school. Barbro and I were talking after dinner one night about the value of young people going out on their own though. And this trip has given me a real sense of independence. Sometimes I'm still scared, and sometimes I whine about it, but I know I can handle whatever "it" may be. Thank you Sweden for helping me be a little more courageous.
