  1. You will get lost. Over and over and over. Your temp Nokia cannot save you like your iPhone’s google maps. Take it as a blessing.
  2. Some people will say so little your responses in their native tongue will convince them you’re fluent. Others will try to engage in a real conversation. As they say, “fake it till you make it.”
  3. Be sensitive to culture. There is no “right way.” A train is never too full for more people in Tokyo - you make room somehow. Not everywhere else. Be cordial, wait for the next train.
  4. Be sensitive to history. Memorialisation of dark pasts are hard enough for individuals - it is an ongoing struggle for entire nations. Respect and patience are virtues. 
  5. Appreciate silence. Living in a home with people you cannot talk to will be awkward at times, even lonely. There are other ways to communicate. Cook breakfast to show gratitude, laugh together at the dumb movie you’re all watching. It’s frustrating to be educated yet illiterate. Embrace it as it is. 
  6. Enjoy your own company. Being abroad means seeing your friends once a day, at most. You’ll take walks by yourself, eat by yourself. Sometimes you’ll read or write. Sometimes you’ll just simply sit there and eat. You’ll find out how comfortable you are in your skin, your mind will wander about. It’s healthy. Either way, you’re in the company of others often enough - you need to take time to appreciate your own.
