Study Abroad!

This is one thing that I would have loved to do!!

Unfortunately, my currently stupid school is too poor to actually do anything fun like that. Can you imagine the learning possibilities of studying abroad? The learning possibilities could be endless!! If I had enough money to go to Northern Kentucky University, one of the biggest universities near me in Kentucky, I would have signed on to study abroad in a heartbeat!! But the only bad thing is: I wouldn't know where to go! If I were a student there, I'd probably have the professor rolling on the floor laughing at my high level of excitement at doing something like this. So, about 2 minutes ago, I was bored and looking at random stuff on the Internet as usual and decided to see what NKU had to offer. They have tons of stuff to offer. I should have gone into something like Criminal Justice. For some odd reason, Law just interests me for some odd reason! Here is the site They offer all kinds of Study Abroad programs. If I get enough money, I think I'm gonna go for Criminal Justice. Change around a few goals on my 'bucket list'. Instead of graduating for Graphic Design, I'm gonna try Criminal Justice and see what happens! If I study abroad, I might make some new friends?
