The people here I live with are great and I love them, but they don't understand how on the outsideThey don't understand how sometimes I feel like they just don't care. I feel like their mentality is "Well she decided to come to Germany so I don't get why she's always talking about the USA and why she can't just assimilate" Yet the problem I have with this is that none of them have done what I have done so why do they act like they know what I'm going through. None of them have picked up and moved halfway across the world to a place where they know almost no one knows you, live in a country where a majority of the people don't like outlanders least of which Americans, to a place that has nothing to remind you of home.
But I lasted 11 months before I really got home sick and I only have 4 more to go. I'm sure I'll live.
