The Truth About “Finding Yourself” In A Foreign Country

Part of me wonders — not for the first time in my life — what the f*ck I’m doing here? Except I know what I’m doing here.

Like the friend you have on speed-dial when a first date goes south, fall swoops in to save you from yourself (and others), to give you an opportunity for a fresh start, and a really good excuse to Netflix and chill. With fall comes change. And I don’t just mean literally, with the leaves turning colors and the cooling temperatures and all.
