The Secrets of Studying Abroad
 
On Janurary 1st, I will be flying to Glasgow, Scotland for a semester abroad. I'm 20, don't have a serious girlfriend, and will have a deccent amount of money to blow. I've already connected with a few OOT's over there and it's clear I'm going to have the time of my life. I want to maximize all the possibities of fun, so I'm turning to OOT for nuggets of wisdom. Here is my plan thus far:

1) Drink a new kind of beer every day.
2) Try to visit a new country every weekend.
3) Travel with good friends who are studying abroad, but try to make as many new friends from different countries as possible.
4)Listen to what people think about Americans, rather then tell them anything about America.
5) Have a rough budget and try to stick to it (I'll have about 7k for travel and fun, not including tuition and accomidations)

What else should be in my plan? Obviously I'm going to try to get in bar fights and have sex with Scottish chicks.

I spent about 8k in England last semester and I wasn't even in London. I'd say be sure to visit the smaller towns/areas- not just the large cities (a city is a city). Take lots of trips. Also, as we learned don't get on a train anywhere unless you're drunk or brought something with you to drink, it just doesn't make sense to not be drunk if you could be.

I've been to Glasgow. Great beer, crappy food. Expect to lose weight.

I lost like 30 lbs in the last few months to increase my chances with the ladies. I'm less about the food and more about the girls.

So you're saying that I should focus on banging the other internationals at my university? That seems sort of lame.

I guess the choice is:
1) Sacrifice quality for the international experiance?
2) Or just go for hottness, regardless of nationality?

Did you spend 8k on housing and tuition, or just on booze and fun? Damn, that's a lot of money.

My first month in England I only hooked up with 3 American Students who were there. After an initial shock and a few pints they'll look better. And just something about nabing international girls makes it exciting!!

Right, it's cooler to bang some international girls than go to another country and [censored] american chicks. This ain't spring break.

I spent a lot of time traveling, plus the dollar=dick.
And drinking is expensive. Do the math...a pint'll cost you around 3-4 pounds we'll say. That's like $7.
