When you read the title of this post, you are supposed to start singing along to this song by Devendra Banhart, to get you in the mood. :)
Since moving to Germany, I often feel like a child. Why? Because I have to relearn so much! How to speak, how to read, how to write. How to drive (because in the U.S. I only drove automatic, and never learned to drive a stick shift). I want to tell you: sometimes I am tired of all this LEARNING! It is exhausting! Living in Europe is no carefree, cobblestoned fantasy world!!
My mom would've said: come back to the U.S. then! Sometimes, I'm more than tempted. But I know if she were around to tell me that, hearing it from her it would only strengthen my determination to stay (I am still her stubborn daughter). So I guess when I'm feeling like a child, instead of feeling frustrated and powerless I should...remind myself that I was a cute kid? Take a nap? Try to tap into a sense of childlike wonder or some such?
One of those things, but a nap seems like it's always a good bet.
