I’ve already been here almost a month since I took an intensive language course before school started. Let me tell you, if you’re studying abroad not for language or in a place that speaks English, do this. It was 2 weeks, $350, and is the only reason I can buy groceries like an adult here. Also, don’t overload yourself on courses. One guy here is taking 20 hr of graduate level math (as a sophomore in undergrad) and he’s dying rn of stress from all that in a foreign country.
That’s enough unsolicited advice, here’s the link to the blog I’ve BEEN running since I misunderstood blog workings here, and also some pics from the cruise we went on yesterday.
