I got this question posted on my formspring page and since it's one that I've been dealing with a lot lately, I decided that I wanted to answer it on my blog.
What is your BIGGEST reservation about moving overseas?
This is a tough one for me because I have so many. While I am excited to move and start a life with TLS I'm scared that I won't fit into the military culture and won't make friends. I'm scared that I won't get a job. I don't know how to drive and am scared about not being able to get around on base. I'm scared of not knowing any German and having a hard time adjusting. Most of all, I think I'm scared of becoming unimportant and irrelevant to my friends. I had to step down from one of my volunteer positions in my sorority because it involves chapter visits and I won't be able to do that from Germany. I may have to miss a sister's wedding this summer, and I am unable to attend my sorority's national convention this summer. I am scared that when I come back to the United States after 4+ years of living overseas, my friends will have moved on and forgotten about me.
