10 Things About Living Abroad: No Turning Back | Thought Catalog →

A year ago, I was finishing out my time in Poland. Reflecting on my experience, all of this is SO ACCURATE.

(I wanted to go home so badly, and now I just want to go back. HAAAAAA.)

I still have pictures to put up from my trip here in Poland, but this is my sister’s face waiting for me back in America. She says it’s her “YOU’RE COMING HOME IN 24 HRS. FACE”

That awkward moment when you don’t have the correct change, so the cashier has to round up and give you 5 grosze instead of 3…

And she gets really mad at you. So mad that when you say “excuse me” to try to pay for another last minute item, she blatantly ignores you.

BTW, 2 grosze ≤ 1penny… -________________-

My sister just got accepted to her first choice university.

I’m so sad that I can’t be there to celebrate with her.

But I am seriously so proud of her.

I’m reminiscing about that moment that I had when I got accepted to my first choice school and how amazing it was.

I just wish that I could be at home to share it with her. :(

Today one of my professors took us out for cake and coffee instead of having class.

And at some point in our conversation, he told us—

"I got arrested in the 1970’s. They came into my house and took me away and my family didn’t know what had happened to me. They accused me of collaborating with the CIA. I kept saying ‘Show me the proof,’ and they never could. They held me for three months and then let me go."

Then one of my classmates asked, “So did you work for the CIA?”

And he said, "Of course."
