Is my new dream location. I used to be unbelievably obsessed with Japan. I still love it and definately wouldn't mind going back. But I specifically want to go to Europe now, along with New Zealand and Australia. I have family in England, Scotland, and France. And I'm uberrr jealous lol. How are the colleges in Europe? Specifically England, Scotland, and Ireland for those who live there. I won't be going anytime soon. I think it's my anxiety and impatience getting the best of me. I keep telling my mother I'm going to Europe for college and she laughs in my face which pretty much downs my hopes. I most likely will be attending college in America. NOT NEW YORK! I'm sick of New York right now. I love New York.... but I have to leave... SOON. They're suffocating me with their new yorknessness. So yeah... I figured in my 3rd year maybe or so I'd transfer or something like that I don't know. I just want to get outta here! lol. I love New York. Really I do. And I will always be a true New Yorker at heart but I just want to get out there and experience more than what my state is offering at this moment and age of my life. lol. I know you're probably like "take it slow you're mad young" and I know this but still. I'm eager! I'm like an eager beaver. Don't ask me where this came from I really don't know. But my new friends in school are all Europeans! lol weird... anyway, ya.... any ideas, suggestions, words of advice? Something the exact opposite of what my mother's been telling me lol.And actually, my family here in New York is planning a trip to Brazil. Personally, I'd rather jump off the empire state building than go to Brazil. It's a long story but I don't have good history with Brazil or the relatives that live there. I know that if I do go to Brazil I will be charged for murder. I cannot be held accountable for my actions considering I'd probably go mentally insane from the crap I'd have to deal with over there. And yeah yeah yeah people always make a big deal about how beautiful Brazil is and the people are exotic etc etc. Hullabaloo! Europe... not Brazil. I've been to Brazil already and I don't want to go again. But I have a strong feeling my parents are going to make me go which is really rude since they know why I don't want to go. But whatever. I forgot to mention Italy! Italy is a must! lol
Well from what I've heard about the prices of some colleges in America, I definitely support a decision to come to Europe for a third level education. In Ireland tuition is free for Irish students but even at full price they're usually less than €5,000. A decent part-time job could support you quite well for accommodation and cost of living, although if you need a loan then there are some great student offers (I would suggest AIB).And if Ireland isn't really your cup of tea (hard to imagine) then I'd probably suggest either Edinburgh or Paris.
