    I just moved from Sweden to Rotterdan a few

    weeks ago. It's not a huge change culturally but I still haven't gotten into the language. I know some phrases but I would like to speak Dutch some day. Rotterdam's a cool town with alot of modern buildings and great opportunities for transport. Soon I'm beginning the Master's...

    England

    I'm originally from the US but moved to England to go to uni.  I'm currently in my second year doing media studies and drama.  I like the British education system better than the American one.  Plus I graduate a year earlier here then if I was in the US. xx
