I'm so excited to officially announce that I've been accepted into the BU Geneva program for the spring semester!
...yes, my last semester in university is going to be spent abroad. Yes, they tell you not to do this. But you know what? My university experience has been anything but typical in enough ways that I think spending my Senior spring overseas will be brilliant.
Lots of people talk about how their college experience was the best four years of their lives. If this turns out to be the best period of my life, then my future must be pretty bleak. I spent too much of my Freshman year in a relationship that was never going to work and too much of my Sophomore semester trying to figure out what I wanted out of my education. I've only been happy since my Junior semester (last spring) at Boston University... and while I don't have any regrets about how things happened, it's definitely time to do a semester for myself.
In Geneva, I'm going to take French. I'm going to spend way too much money eating myself sick on cheese. I'm going to grocery shop across the border in France, day trip around the Alps, and hopefully explore more beautiful European locations. I'll finally take a formal French class, get an internship, and live in a French-speaking canton for more than a month. It's going to be brilliant.
