  • Personal Narrative: Moving To America

    I can still remember that day. If someone asked me, I thought the world was coming to a blazing end. Well, at least my world. It was a very warm and humid spring afternoon. It was unusually warm, especially for this time of the year in Poland, as Poland does not experience humidity, especially not in the spring. Instead, this was the typical type of weather found in the east coast of the United States: hot, humid, and almost unbearable. It was quite a coincidence actually; since this was the…
