For me it was optional and of course it seemed like a great way to increase my career prospects and to go on an adventure.
I was getting a little bored of things at uni in the UK and thought it would be exciting.
But the reality is it sucks.
My friends are all in the UK having a great time and I'm abroad with a lot less friends, and the friends I do have probably wouldn't be people I'd be friends with if I was in the uK
Sure it's an exciting place I'm in, whenever I tell people where I'm living they are dead impressed, but they've only ever been there on a holiday and it's totally different living there.
I don't need a year to see all the sites.
I know I shouldnt be so negative but it's two months in and all I can feel is that I've made the worst decision of my life.
Any advice on how to be more positive?
Have you done any of these?
