I debated even writing this entry, because while the following is an honest account of my experiences in Germany right now, I have tried to avoid airing any grievances here for the length of time that I’ve had them to air (since Festivus has already come and gone until next winter, heh.) Well, I’ll keep it short.
I have some good news and some bad news. And you can guess which is which: due to circumstances that I really regret (and also because I feel like a dummy for getting myself to this point,) I have made the decision to leave the family that I have been living with for the past six weeks and try again with another family in Weilheim (the Oberbayern one, not the Baden-Wurtemburg one.) It doesn’t really matter what has happened, just that I will be taking a train there on February 11, unless I leave earlier. That is to say, if they tell me that I can leave earlier, because while I was the one who gave notice, I’m doing all that I can within reason to do the responsible thing given the situation.
Something I learned today: Listen to your gut. Resolve things like a grownup. Don’t stay in a situation that makes you feel terrible just to say that you didn’t quit – respect yourself enough to stop doing things that are holding you back and to move onto things that are challenging in a GOOD way. Don’t let people take advantage of you, because you absolutely don’t deserve it.
