There was a moment this past week when I was pretty sure I was going to die. Well, not really die, but be really uncomfortable and embarrassed, and also maybe lose one of my favorite pairs of shoes.
Often when you choose to study abroad there are lots of other choices that go with it, and one that can impact your experience dramatically is where you choose to live. I could have been in a dorm or apartment with other American or international students, or in a dorm with Native students, but I chose to live with a host family.
I’m not going to lie. Knowing I’d be leaving for Copenhagen in less than a month made studying for finals much more difficult than usual. I am beyond excited. The classes I’m going to take at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad, the people I’m going to meet, and all the new things I’m going to try are all much more fun to think about than finals.
