Ah, the first day… feeling like a little kid on his first day at school. A sudden rush of fear of the unknown overwhelms you while anticipating the inevitable. Yeah, well… It sounds more horrific than it actually is. Have in mind that you are not the only one there surviving this awkward situation. There is plenty of other students that, just like you, are trying to make new friends when studying abroad. And they all do fine, the same way you will. It takes a little more effort and preparation, but it’s worth it.
