Best Laid Plans...

There are kinds of traffic that are lovable.

If all goes as planned, I will be studying in Copenhagen this time next year! I am crossing my fingers and throwing pennies into wells and doing constructive things like keeping my grades up, setting up meetings and sprucing up my resumé in hopes that I will be accepted into the architecture and design program. I do not speak Danish, or any language other than Spanish and English and, since "the incident"* I harbor a fear of cycling in the city. But I can overcome this! My courses and homestay will be in English and maybe I can pick up a few Danish phrases along the way ...

*ah, "the incident"! Last semester I thought it would be a good idea to go on a leisurely bike ride. Except I violated one of the major rules of bike riding in a city - I thought like a car driver. So, I took a very, very busy and car-filled road to get to one particularly picturesque street (which ended up being all uphill) and OH GOOD GOD THERE WERE SO MANY MANY CARS and they were going fast! and honking at me! and I was scared! and I haven't written my bike since. Sigh.

You're going to love your study abroad experience. You will go into it for one or two good reasons, and cherish it forever for a million others. I went to Costa Rica between my sophomore and junior years at AU. All I can say is - Copenhagen - bundle up!
