As a vegetarian and someone allergic to most dairy, eating food other than carbs was almost certainly out of the question. So baguettes and Nutella and lettuce heads it was. A few days in I started crying in the dairy aisle of my local grocery store when I realized I didn't know the words for "soy milk" and was too embarrassed to ask.Fine, fine. But this line... this line should have been excised during the HuffPo's editing process (assuming they have one): "I've found that the most difficult part of being here is the nagging inability to communicate my feelings to others in a sophisticated manner." Us too. Unfortunately, it takes years.
