Advice:
When you are feeling overwhelmed- talk to someone, get the information you need, and make a plan of action- you will feel so much better.

If you have the chance to travel, or to have a new experience, take advantage of it! I spent 3 years living just north of Milan; cycling through the local villages, learning to ski the Alps, and traveling extensively through England, France, and the rest of Italy. I have also been to Turkey, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Slovenia, Mexico, Central America, and many islands in the Caribbean. Now that I am back in the U.S. my next goal is seeing more of our beautiful country, there are so many places in America I have yet to visit!
