I'm Going to be a Statistic

According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, only 0.3 percent of U.S. college students study abroad.

I plan on being in that number.

A few weeks ago I met with my academic advisor, and she informed me that I took my classes in such a way that would allow me take a semester of electives only. When I first came to school, I was hell bent on studying abroad. Now, knowing that I can take a semester of electives, this thought seems even more reasonable.
As of last week, I have spoke my traveling situation into life, and am claiming it so. Next fall, during my senior year of college, I will be doing Semester at Sea. That's right, I'll be on a traveling university touring through different countries around the world.

Excited, much? I am. Big sis'-you'll be glad to know that one of the countries is Spain. Another one is Japan. THERE! We both win.

Row, Row, Row Your Boat (LOL, It's what we're singing at work. Don't ask.),


  1. Oooooh, I wanna go to Japan! So bad. And I must.

  2. I'm so excited! I've had some crazy experiences just from traveling state to state, so I can only imagine visitng all those different countries. What fun! Well you know I got people in Spain now so let me know lol
