How travel can solve your quarter life crisis?
Travel makes you modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world. – Gustave Flaubert
As I said, if the quarter life crisis hits you, you don’t have to drop everything, your job, life partner and the dog and go on a solo trip around the world with twenty euros in your pocket. Find a suitable way for you to explore the world. You can take a weekend trip to the neighbouring state or country. Find cheap airplane tickets and plan a week getaway. Do it alone, it will allow you to focus more on the experiences you have, test yourself in different situations. It will give you time to listen to your thoughts. Solving small problems along the way will give you strength to deal with the big ones in your life.
I have done my share of solo travelling and it’s refreshing and empowering. I honestly admit though that as much as I like taking my solo trips, I wouldn’t like to be on a solo travel adventure for too long because I miss my home and I want to share the experience. Although I live abroad, I keep close ties with my family and friends back at home, you don’t need to burn your bridges as you search for new solutions.
I decided to study abroad to find answers and make it my travelling experience. It’s slow travel, it’s moving at least temporarily to another place and learning to call it home. I tend to take my time with that, I have to learn to feel the place. It’s an odd experience, especially once you do it more than once. I fell like I have my “home” scattered around the continent, but that’s how I like it. I need my security inside all of the moving around.
Maybe that’s a solution for you? If you think about changing your degree and starting over, think about studying abroad, even if only for a semester. A quarter life crisis can be a wonderful opportunity to get out there and try new things. If you don’t know how to start thinking about studying abroad.
Can you give me some accent reduction tips?
I'm a fluent speaker of the English language but I have a slight accent since I'm from Europe. I've been living in the US for 2 years and I'm 22 years old. I'd like to know how I could reduce my foreign accent and I wanna put on an American accent. Is this possible at my age? Please don't tell me that accents are attractive to some, I want to eliminate mine.
I speak with a very heavy Indian accent. Do you think accent reduction classes at a college could help me? I like the American accent and since I have to interact with people on a daily basis, its gets hard sometimes. I want to improve my English sentence formation and grammar as well as learn the American accent. Do you think accent reduction classes from studydaddy.com are what I should do?
