The one thing I regret most is that I did not keep a journal. There are so many little things that happened during my time abroad that I will probably not remember unless I read them back from a journal. I also think, looking back, that it would have been important to reflect on the events and places that I experienced.
Keeping a journal would have given me time to really take in everything that I was doing. After you study abroad you will look back and realize that you’ve never done so much in the short amount of time that you were away. I definitely recommend that any student studying abroad keep some sort of journal, whether it be in a notebook, on your phone, or through an online blog.
