Some Relevant Songs:
Dare You To Move- Switchfoot
DARE- Gorillaz

I also highly recommend the movie Love Me If You Dare, not only because it is a brilliant film, but because it really explores the meaning of dares, from the literal sense, to the idea of daring to say something.
Daring to move.
Daring to love.

So, what wouldn't you ever dare do?
Ever played truth or dare?
What is it to be daring?

all i've been hearing over the past couple of months is you're so brave for daring to start a new life in the US or always something along those lines.
I've been thinking about it. If i'm really "brave" or something.
I thought, um, no.

And that is sadly all I have to say about this word :(

German: wagen, sich trauen, herausfordern
Italian: osare, rischiare

you're brave for going to an entirely new country.
a country whose native language you don't speak as a first language [although you're pretty damn good at it].
you're brave for living in said new country for an entire year with a family you've never ever met before & who you really don't know anything about.
you're brave for not being as scared as fuck as i would be in that situation.

thanks for the translations, btw.
