Bust A Move are posts focused on what Tyler and Megan are thinking and learning before, during and after their move to another country.
So, I may be going out on a limb here, but nobody wants to suck at something they do. Surprisingly, Megan and I are no different.
Now, looking at this trip before even stepping onto a plane, there are so many levels of failure that are just waiting to spring up and bite us. What if we fail at living in another country? What if we become deathly allergic to rice? What if I need to wear long pants somewhere and we've brought none? What if the internet's in another language? What if our passports don't look enough like us and they keep us in the airport forever?
While I know these issues probably won't be issues at all (knock on wood), the moment I began telling people about our trip I started to fear something I never had: What if we don't "get" whatever it is you're supposed to "get" when you go on these kinds of trips? Like, is that something a feeling? Is it a mental state? Is it tangible? Is it a tan? It's probably a tan. But what if it's not?
Shocking truth, I tend to be a control freak when it comes to results, and this is LITERALLY losing control stacked on top of losing control hidden inside a secret location that nobody can tell you how to get to. You know…just fun stuff that gets you really great sleep in the weeks leading up to your trip.
