10 Reasons I'm Excited To Study Abroad This Summer

I can't wait!

10 Reasons I'm Excited To Study Abroad This Summer

I knew from the beginning of college that I wanted to study abroad. I didn't know where I would go, how I would get there, or if I would even get the chance to do it! Luckily, I'm so fortunate to get the opportunity to go, and I've never been more excited in my life! Here are 10 reasons why I'm looking forward to getting out of the country this summer.

1. I get to travel across the world


Traveling is something I love doing, and I haven't done as much as I would've liked to yet. Of course, I have the rest of my life too, and this is just the beginning!

2. I get to meet new people


Not only do I get to travel with people from my school, but I also get to meet locals! I'm can't wait to share such a cool experience with so many people.

3. Accents


I LOVE ACCENTS. Sorry not sorry, but it is one of the reasons that I have literally never been happier to leave the country.

4. I get to travel the new country and try not to get lost


I am actually terrified of getting lost, but there's nothing that good ole Google Maps can't fix. Plus, if I do get lost, at least I'll have someone with me because I'm not going anywhere alone!

5. I get to explore other countries with my friends


Since I'm going to London, that means that other countries are relatively close to me! I'm planning on going to France and possibly Belgium, and I couldn't be happier.

6. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity


There's a chance I won't ever get to travel again. There's a chance I'll never get to study abroad again. There's a chance for everything, so I'm avoiding all bad possibilities, and taking the chance to do what I want to now!

7. I get to learn more about my major


I'm ecstatic to learn more about what I'm getting myself into for my future jobs. I'll come back from London a new woman with a new understanding of journalism.

8. I'm going out of my comfort zone


I mean this both literally and figuratively. I'm going to be in a foreign country, and I'm also going to be without my usual family and friends only minutes away from me. YIKES!

9. I get to try new food


I'm so excited to eat food I'm not used to (even though I'll probably go to McDonalds at least once). Trying new food is easily one of my favorite things, and I can't wait to stuff my face!

10. I get to be independent


As someone who isn't very independent, I plan on FLOURISHING in London. My independence will grow and I am so ready for it!

I can't contain my excitement at ALL.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
