    So guys I have been pondering on whether I should go study to the UK and I am still kinda undecided. The degree is awesome, the lecturers and the department too. I am more wary of the social part, not that I am an antisocial fellow its just first I won't be speaking my native language and this may reduce my social success on saying puns, telling stories idk I might be telling a story and then freeze, like not knowing what to say (and we all know that being requested to tell a story in a group and not be able to live up to the expectations screws you). Things like these may inhibit me, and I am bit shy and being out of my home around unknown people may aggravate that... I mean it all gets worse when you re out of your homeland, I guess. Plus, I ll be taking lit which will require from me a great understanding of the language (in which making puns in english should be an easy task), and I might not have it right away when I get to univ... I am kinda overthinking this, what do you think?

    It'll be a good experience for you to widen your horizons. Everyone has their preconceptions on moving to somewhere else and I'm sure it won't be a problem for you to socialise with people from the UK especially since it's pretty diverse and you might see people from where you come from originally.
