I could say that I hope that maybe one day someone would read it and be able to learn from my mistakes. I am sure that there will be other American students who find themselves in this city and would love to not feel so alone. I also like the idea of having a record of this journey so I can look back and remember what it was like when I starting out when I was struggling.
Another reason could be is that I have a lot of time on my hands. A lot. This blog gives me some tangible results. At least at the end of the day I will have my blog posts.
Here goes nothing. Wish me luck.
