I think that the exchange is organised into days of good and bad. But not like life "good and bad days". One day you will make a breakthrough in the language AND see your friends AND make a plan for the weekend, and the next day, you will be completely lost and down on yourself and making all different kinds of mistakes. So the good days are really fulfilling, but the bad days are super uncomfortable. I know we're supposed to adapt and keep going, and I can totally do that. It's not difficult to continue doing life functions from one day to the next. And that's really all it takes, because who knows, your next day could be a great one!
