Why didn’t I study abroad???

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Study Abroad.”

Okay, when I read this prompt I began to list all of the places I remember saying I wanted to go when I was planning for college. Then I remembered all of the programs that I looked at while I was in college. Studying abroad was high on my list of things to do while I was in college.

So why is it that I didn’t do it?

Hell, I still don’t have a passport.

I guess the simple answer is that my priorities changed. Financially, studying abroad was not an option for me.

The other reason, well, I was having a hard enough time surviving college to add on the notion of studying abroad. It was a scary thing. I took German in college and had pondered going over there but was more excited about countries whose language I didn’t speak. Hell, I didn’t and don’t speak German.

The long and short of it is that I chickened out. I kept saying that I would just travel later on. Then I had my son and later seemed to be pushed further off into the distance.

If I could do college over again I would totally study abroad.

But we don’t have that luxury.

So I will simply make sure that I don’t chicken out again and get some traveling done in the near future.
