10 Bad Excuses to Not Study Abroad

Martha's Adventures

  • Found this article while scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed. THESE ARE ALL SO TRUE.
  • Read it here. (Thanks, The College Tourist)

I’m going to add my own reasons on why you definitely, definitely, DEFINITELY, should study abroad.

  1. You will remember this experience for your entire life and it’ll probably be one of the top 10 moments of your life.
  2. Studying abroad will change you for the better.
  3. It is such a freeing experience to break away from your own culture for a little bit.
  4. Hot men from different countries

Well, you get the idea. 🙂

Have a great one!
