5 Reasons Why Everyone Should Study Abroad
Danielle Church

It seems like nowadays people always study abroad in college. And why wouldn't they? There are so many reasons that it will turn out to be one of the best experiences you ever have.

There's no such thing as bad food abroad.

Everything, and I mean everything, is good. It's all made from scratch and you get to experience a country's authentic food that you normally wouldn't get in the United States. Even the pickiest eaters will agree (coming from experience). Plus if you go to Europe, there's excellent gelato all around. Not kidding, it seems like every time you turn around there's a gelato shop. #gelatofordayz

The views.

Breathtaking. Need I say more?

The language.

English isn't the only language in the world. It's important that people understand that and when you get to experience what it's like being the minority in another country, it makes you appreciate the diversity that much more. You not only can potentially learn another language, but you could also enjoy the beauty in hearing other people's accents.

Your group becomes a mini family.

One of the most nerve-wracking parts about studying abroad is that you are going to be in a new country with people that you don't really know. However, that's also one of the best parts about it. Studying abroad is an experience you get to have with a group of people that will connect you all in a way no other experience really could. You guys will have your ups and downs but in the end, your study abroad group can become some of your closest new friends. They are your family away from home and you will build an unbreakable bond.

You're probably already in debt anyway, so f*** it.

Unless you're one of those people who was fortunate enough to get a full ride or a lot of scholarships, you're probably going to be in student debt for a long time anyway. Why not make the debt, at least, worth it and see the world in the process? There's so much of the world to see and we shouldn't waste any more time making excuses for why we can't experience everything it has to offer.

So if you get the chance to study abroad, do it. It will be a life changing experience and I promise you won't regret it.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
