I had dates during sorority formals, traveled with my then-partner during spring break, and even took a class called "Sex, Love, and Romance" at my local Jewish life center. A whole new horizon opens in front of you, and the lessons that you will learn do not only come from books you read.
You will never again have the opportunity to live, study, and work in another country under quite the same circumstances as you will during a study abroad program. Will it be scary and nerve-wracking?
But soon the idea that you can eat anything and anytime becomes more and more tempting. Coffee dates can happen at any daytime hour, really.
Some of my favorite memories from college involve impromptu gatherings around our kitchen table, random trips to nearby hour diners, and all sorts of other things you can only do when you live with your favorite people.
But high school and college… it ain't real. Not to mention that studying abroad is a viable option, and will be cheapest travel you will ever have access to.
So, as you can imagine, your schedule can get crazy with meetings, band practice, sport practice, play rehearsal, work hours, etc.!
PJs are acceptable attire 99 percent of the time This is only true in college, so cherish those pajama-clad moments while you can.
