Wanting, wishing, and waiting...


Today was just one of those days where I wished I was somewhere else, doing something else. I found this website that sheds light onto how many people in the US actually have a passport. A whopping 20% or so, of those I wonder how many have actually traveled outside the US/Touristy destinations (Yes Canada I’m throwing you in that category). It’d be a fair guess to say that the 20% of people will never travel and live off the beaten path. So where am I going with all this? Lately I’ve been reflecting on my time as a student abroad. The experience helped totally change the way I looked at things. The opportunity to make friends from everywhere is indescribable. For once in my life I actually got to meet genuine Europeans, Koreans, Chinese, Russians, Uzbekistani, Aussie, and Kiwi flavored personalities. While the experience had both its highs and lows I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Since I’m in the BA/MA program it means that I will soon have another opportunity to do study abroad. I’ve been mulling over where to go. Something keeps drawing me back to Korea…first time was awesome, what would a second one hold? My university is making a huge push to both send and receive international students lately. I am hoping with this rise in funding and awareness that I can successfully pull off another study abroad. Expert planning? Check. Fiscal Shrewdness? Check. Now to make it happen….
