NEW BLOG UPDATE ==> Journal Series: "Year Abroad in Rabat Part 3. My Rigid & Structured Self" (Last written post on my 2017-2018 academic exchange in Morocco)

I’m a person who struggles with change. In particular, the change whose outcome I can’t predict or foresee. It frustrates me a lot not knowing where I’m going, or what I’m doing with enough time to plan and prepare ahead. I’m an excessively structured…
