Hey You –
Today’s Lesson: Study Abroad.
Mommy and Daddy really dropped the ball here. In college, you will have the opportunity to “Study Abroad” aka a semester somewhere else. For the same price as going to school at your own school in the US, you can spend a semester in a foreign city. For the love of all that is holy do it. Not doing it is one of my biggest regrets. I never went over season until I was 29 and I became addicted to it. If you go to a place in Europe, you can easily get to the entire continent each weekend.
The world is a big place. See as much of it as possible.
