Personal comments
An overview of the library would have been very helpful. It was rather difficult with the language barriers and selection of available resources.

Final comments
Since studying at Ben Gurion University, my life has completely changed. My future goals have become stronger as well as my day to day life. I wish I could describe how all-encompasing this feeling has been, but I think because it is so large makes it more difficult to explain. Just know that an experience like this can forever change your life as it did mine.

Personal spending habits
I have all the necessities for a home, kitchen, appropriate clothing, etc. at my permanent home. So purchasing these items again did cost more than had I already had them. Also, I work almost 50 hours a week at home, so my social life is nill; but in Israel I had the time to go out and have fun.
