Budapest Week One: First Impressions

adventures of andrea

I’ve had a bit of a lifestyle change since I last checked in here on the blog: I’ve arrived in Budapest, Hungary to study abroad for the semester! This past week has felt like a whirlwind, and I’m excited to share it all with you.

Upon arriving last Sunday (one week ago), I was jetlagged, exhausted, and overwhelmed. So many unknowns faced me, which was simultaneously exciting and stressful.

It’s possibly the best concept I’ve ever come across, and at the same time, it’s one of the hardest habits to break. I still struggle a lot with this, but along the way, I’ve learned a few ways to better understand procrastination and ways I can move past it. So how can you start to live a procrastination-free life?
