I wish i had known it was going to colder than i had anticipated. I would have brought a thicker jacket to wear instead of purchasing a new one.

Better to travel in advance to look for accommodation. Careful election of courses because they might imply heavy workload.

Maybe I should have gotten a fake ID. Being 20 in the US is not so much fun from a nighlife perspective.

Go to Joshua Tree Park and Palm Canyon by Palm Springs. There is nothing like it! And a trip to Vegas is a must too.

I had fun but at times it was really hard. It depends which major you choose at this university, but studying can be pretty hard.
