The 4 Best Places To Study Abroad

The 4 Best Places To Study Abroad

The most beautiful and exciting places to study abroad if you're a college student.


Most college students, no matter where you go, have the opportunity to study abroad and well, if you're clueless as to where you want to go, look no further. Here's a condensed list of five absolutely stunning places to go to:

1. Madrid, Spain

Spain in general is one of the most fashion-forward and historically rich countries. The city is literally in the middle of Spain and there are tons of attractions you can go to. First of all, football (soccer) is staple there and even if you don't like the sport, it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience watching a match in a country where the sport originated from. Not only that, but because it is in the middle of the country, you can also take a 5 hour train ride or flight to Pamplona where the notorious Running of the Bulls takes place. If you're like me, then you would also agree that food is one of the best parts about travelling-which Spain has a lot of. From street foods to a lot of affordable restaurants - you name it, they got it.

2. Delhi, India

India is easily one of the most gorgeous and unique places anyone can go to. Everything there is a complete 180 compared to the U.S. There's the historical Taj Mahal that was built by a Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, to function as the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Not only that, but there is also the Mcleodanj if you're into hiking, camping and looking at sceneries. The name literally translates to Heaven Amidst the Hills. You can also go to Binsar, which is a jungle, and you can experience all forms of wildlife, and my personal favorite, Kutch. Kutch is basically a white desert and the most visited place by tourists. They have an annual kite flying festival. Udaipur is also another tourist favorite and is often portrayed as the "Venice of the East," located in Rajasthan.

3. Milan, Italy

There are so many places you can go to Italy, it's almost endless. There's the ruins of Pompeii, a city that was burnt to the ground by a volcanic eruption, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Colosseum, Venice gondolas, The Vatican, fashionable stores, authentic Italian food that will probably make you want to eat only authentic Italian food and not the American kind. It is one of the most visited study abroad countries in the world!

4. Mykonos, Greece

If you're looking to island hop and experience the beach life- this is it, you can stop looking now. Greece is the picturesque place you can go to. No need to photoshop a cool back drop during spring break on your Instagram post, when you have a real life photoshop-looking place right in front of you. There's the turquoise blue water, and yes, Mediterranean food. You can literally take a ferry from one island to another to explore all of Greece and it's all really affordable.

21 Things You Say To Your Roommate If You Two Are Practically A Married Couple

Until I made this list, I didn't realize how absurdly close my roommate and I were. #sorrynotsorry

Let's be real: you and your roommate have said these things at least one to each other.

1. "Can you turn the light off?"

2. "We probably shouldn't go out for dinner again...right?"

*Complains about not having money* *Spends $8 on Chipotle three times a week*

3. "I always pick where we go"

This is a fight you have with your roommate almost every day when you're roommate is as indecisive as mine.

4. "Do you have my keys?"

5. "Can you pick me up?"

6. "Is it hot in here?"

7. "Does this outfit look stupid?"

The answer is usually yes. No offense.

8. "Can you throw this out for me?"

9. "Can we get ice cream?"

10. "I need coffee."

This text is usually sent when you know your roomie is out running errands... errands you know are near a Starbucks.

11. "Can you tell me what happened?"

12. "Are you asleep?"

There have been times where I couldn't tell if you were asleep or dead... and I had to say this out loud to check if you were alive.

13. "Check your DM's."

*Cracks up in the middle of nowhere* *Catches a weird stare from your roomie across the room*

14. "Can you plug this in for me?"

Another instance where "I always pick" happens.

16. "Look at this girl's Instagram."

19. "Can you help me find my phone?"

21. "Why isn't everyone as great as us?"

Starting My First Job In Over A Year Is A Lot To Take In

After the rough spring semester that I had, I'm glad that I got this job and that now I am getting the experience that comes with it.


The summer between my first and second years of college were both fun and boring, but I would say that it was probably more boring than before. The only reason because of this was because I didn't have a job at the time. I mean, don't get me wrong. Before I graduated high school and the summer after I graduated high school I had a job, but it wasn't a job that I thoroughly enjoyed or wanted to continue doing when I got back the summer after my first year of college.

Also, I wasn't lazy. I applied for a bunch of jobs but at the time only two of the jobs got back to me for an interview.

The first job said that they already had a lot of employees that were in college and while the second job said that they would call me back for another interview with the actual boss, I didn't get a phone call about it. So that summer was mostly spent with me at home doing housework as well as picking my brother up from band practices since he didn't have his license yet at the time. So you could guess that this was not a fun summer.

After that summer and learning that I would be able to move into the apartment complex that my friend Sam and I signed up for, I knew that I needed to get money in order to pay for things like groceries, utilities, and others. With that came finding a job. During the long winter break that I had, I was filling out job applications but no one was getting back to me. At this point, I was losing hope and praying that I could find a job as soon as possible so I don't have to apply to a place I didn't want to apply beforehand.

That was when I applied to two camps that were for children with special needs, and then after it passed the date of accepting applications, I got an email from one of the camps about a job interview. The hard thing was that it was hard to find time to do an interview because I had no time to come home from college and so I had to do a phone interview. But trying to find time to do a phone interview was hard because I had no free time. When I finally had time for a phone interview, I was so nervous about it. Afterward, I got told that I had gotten the job and that when I get home from school that I can go get the paperwork.

Now I am currently finishing my second week as a camp counselor and it is honestly one of the best things that could happen. After the rough spring semester that I had, I'm glad that I got this job and that now I am getting the experience that comes with it.
