Reasoning out why #definitelyPTE

Many people who study abroad learn more about themselves in those months than some people learn about themselves in years. Once an individual is away from what one has known most of one's life, one is subjected to different emotions, experiences and feelings that one has never had to deal with before.

Though we all know that there are lots of hindrances and hurdles that come along the path of life, but we must not be scared of them, instead face situations with courage. Going abroad for studies, education or work is one such path where the journey would comprise of challenges across the way, but one must not forget the route to destination and goals that one has for oneself.

Some of the challenges that are common are the language barriers as it can feel very isolating to be living in a country where no one speaks your language. That means many students studying abroad can find themselves feeling as though they're on their own, and start feeling homesick too.

Also, there are some of common issues which have to be faced. They can be listed as -

  • communication issues, 
  • emotional sickness, 
  • fear of being left out, 
  • financial management, 
  • making new friends, 
  • cultural shocks, etc. 

Also, cooking all of the meals, instead of buying takeaway meals becomes a challenge as the food culture might not be suited to the individual. Saving up on cash for emergencies is important to be prepared for the unexpected situations that may come.

The way to combat this is to throw yourself into learning the ways to face new challenges. It is important that the individual must keep the moral high and face difficult situations with courage and fight them instead of letting them take a toll on the person.

The quite sudden emergence of a water foot print comes from the increasing realisation of just how important water is to everyone on the planet, regardless of whether you live in any part of World, the strain being put on the world water resources will affect one and all. 

I’m sure recently we have been hearing alot about thewater conservation; in our day to day lives, it is a huge part of what we do ensuring the sustainability of our generation and the upcoming ones. With the world being more connected than ever and more people being aware of the importance and precarious nature of the water supplies, it is not uncommon to hear about our water footprint being spoken off in the same breath as our carbon footprint.
Below we will glance at just why water is so important, why it is under threat and some ideas on what can be done, both locally and globally. Water sustains all life on earth. Really we could leave this point there but when we look at it further we see how water is behind nearly all aspects of our lives.
The threats facing water are numerous and profound, population growth has led to an explosion of irrigation for agriculture across the globe and it is estimated that water productivity and use saw a 100 fold increase between the end of World War II and the year 2000.
On the global level, approximately 70-80% of fresh water resources are used by agriculture providing food and economic stability to billions of people worldwide, which is the case for both the developing world and large agricultural producing countries, the need for these levels of production is great; it is estimated that we need 1 litre of water per kilocalorie of food produces. Water is also vital for hydro-power that provides for millions of communities across the world.
Furthermore stocks such as freshwater fish are a major source of both global diet and income and are reliant on fresh water, water is also behind economic development, extraction of vital resources such as oil and in the home water can be found in the production of beer, meats, fruit, vegetables – in short water is everywhere.
Climate Change is also posing a threat to the world’s freshwater resources, with reduced rainfall in some areas and increased rainfall in others and with the world largest source of freshwater, the arctic regions, facing significant decline over the next 30 years due to global warming.
