To tell you the truth, I hated the idea of studying abroad.
I hated that I would miss a quarter at a college I love so much. I hated knowing I would have to move. I hated that I would have to figure out a new city and culture when I was already comfortable where I was. The only reason I forced myself to apply was because everyone who has studied abroad before swears by it, and most people who haven’t say they regret it.
How tightly I held on to the known.
