This is my first blog after the winter break which I spent home. It is nice to be back but I still wish the break was longer. I hope everybody had fun celebrating Christmas and New Year.
Coming back to Minneapolis reminded me of my very first time when I came here and I would like to write about how to prepare for that.
Before coming here I thought I am too cool and that I didn't need anybody's help. I signed up for International Buddy Program just in case and late I understood how useful it is. At least there is somebody waiting for you in the airport when you arrive.
When I was packing my staff, one very important thing I didn't think about was to take a nice big picture of my family, right now you might be looking forward to leaving as soon as possible but I assure you that you will miss them.
One more think I wanted to tell: Don't take too many clothes with you. I guess it depends where you are coming from but I found out that the clothes are cheaper here.
Good luck with whatever you are doing!!!!
