Please don't judge me! haha. I never really considered myself sheltered. I always thought I was street smart UNTIL I moved to a foreign country wwith family but not with my parents.
So ayways, I've been here for a bit over 2 years now, but I've only been downtown TWICE on my own. The first one was when I decided to impulsively buy a skateboard (that I never learned to use!). And the second one was just a few minutes ago, today.
So I walked from the university and decided to go on an adventure. See, USPS' online PO box system messed up and reserved me a PO box downtown instead of the PO that my family regularly sends mail through. The post office downtown is only about a half a mile walk... but you have to see this from my perspective--I have no sense of dirrection, i don't know how to use/ride public transportation on my own, and I am AFRAID to cross the street!
