Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

If you’ve been reading my blog you can tell that while you’re adjusting to a new place, things are going to get stressful. It’s hard moving to a new place that has a different culture. Things that used to be easy, like going to the store or trying to call someone, can sometimes be a huge challenge. There’s no reason to get upset or frustrated with your situation, but rather take a deep breath and try see what the problem is. First off, if you’re trying to do something and it just isn’t working,  try the internet. The internet gives you a plethora of knowledge right at your finger tips. Make sure you go to reliable websites, but even websites like Yahoo! Answers offer some valuable information. After a few days things will get easier and after a few weeks you’ll feel like you’ve lived there your entire life.

My first few weeks in Sunderland were stress and frustrating. I didn’t have a phone or the internet so I couldn’t keep in contact with people. However, not actually having those two vital pieces of today’s technology taught me how to relax. After awhile Sunderland became home for me. I knew where to go to for food, electronics or just to have a good time. Obstacles arrive on a daily basis for people, but the obstacles always seemed bigger when you arrive to a foreign place. Just remember, next time you’re having a rough day adjusting just take a deep breath and try to relax.
