15 things I learned this month

These are 15 things I learned in the last part of August and September:

  1. It´s very hard not being able to talk and or express yourself but people are often willing to help you.
  2. I am stronger than I thought
  3. Everyone in the Dominican Republic writes in cursive and it’s nearly impossible to read if you don’t know Spanish
  4. Mosquitoes apparently really like my blood and I should wear mosquito spray 24/7
  5. The school’s food is terrible
  6. Bad times often comes with good times
  7. It’s very important to stay positive even when everything seems to suck. Dumbledore is on to something when he says: Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light
  8. Fruit and vegetables are very cheap in the Dominican Republic but people don’t eat them that often
  9. Spanish names are very hard to pronounce
  10. English teachers don’t have to be able to speak English
  11. Sometimes you should cry it out to move on
  12. It’s very fun and exciting to be on your own in a new country
  13. People do things for a reason that sometimes are hard to see
  14. All people have things in common no matter where you are from
  15. My families are amazing and they want to help and support me no matter what
