3 Things To Keep In Mind When Staying In A Hostel

Let’s Talk Anxiety

I have this thing where I get really nervous when I want to speak up and voice my opinion. This mainly just happens in classrooms but then that’s probably the worst place it can happen. I start to sweat profusely, my hands shake uncontrollably, and I swear people within 10ft. of me can hear the […]
