They can never take our freedom!

Why everyone in college should study abroad for at least a semester.
Part One.


Today, I was thinking fondly upon my days spent at the University of Stirling in Scotland.


Favorite monument dedicated to William Wallace that I could see from my dorm everyday:

Favorite castle that I saw everytime I took the bus to the grocery store or anywhere else:


Dorm I lived in that sat below the aforementioned Wallace Monument:


*Note: My experience with Stirling and the Wallace Monument, which I climbed on several occasions, was all pre-Braveheart. Now apparently it is even more of a tourist spot.

i think experience another cultur is esential to growing as a person...

Than again my views have always been a little skewed.

Oh, and after this year, I most definatly plan to study in other countries as well. It´s well worth the money.

There were three castles in the town where I stayed in Germany. We didn't really have the picturesque Scottish countryside to go along with it, though.

If I had the money to be in college in the first place then I would totally study abroad. But alas. I completely lack the funds to do that...

Maybe in the future. :)

yep, sometimes the funds are just not in place.

and i don't qualify for study abroad aid because i already have loans out and don't have a credit worthy cosigner.

woot woot for the lower class.
