Fulbright Month One Video

Hey friends, how are you? I finally got around to compiling my video clips from the last month into a complete video. I really enjoy capturing my life in this format, but I must admit this time around I’m feeling a little wary of posting. Not because these clips aren’t great or accurately representative of my life, but they simply don’t tell the full story. Sometimes I decide not to post photos or videos to Facebook because I don’t want anyone to feel like their life is less than or negatively compare their story to mine. While living and working abroad has been an incredible experience this far that I wouldn’t trade for the world, I also just want to be honest and mention a few of the many things that aren’t featured in this video, such as:

Frustrations with Visa paperwork
An endless struggle to get internet at home
More than a few missed trains and buses
Trying to decipher utility bills in German
Insecurity about my language ability

And so much more. So while I hope you thoroughly enjoy this video, I just wanted to say that whatever you’re going through, you are not alone. Everyone, without exception, struggles. Social media may make life look shiny, but at the end of the day we are all trying our best to make it one step at a time 🙂 Wishing you a good one, friends!

  1. You are an amazing photographer, Micah, and I enjoy your posts. How is your teaching going? Yes, working in a language is not your native tongue is very difficult and makes us appreciate those who constantly struggle with that. Blessings to you.

  2. Missy, I watched this video again in preparation to be with you. I can’t wait. And, I thought your comments below were really sensitive to all your readers. Yeah, life looks pretty glamorous but life is really most life, regardless of the place. I love you and will see you Saturday!
