    Get Outta Here:)

    I live in England, and after I finish University, I want to move to America, with my friend. I was originally going straight after high school, but I realised it's more practical to get educated here. Its one of my dreams, and I hope I won't loose it :)

    I stayed in South Carolina

    for a foreign exchange last year and it was the best year of my life. For the first time in my life I felt like I belonged. I miss it every day, it makes my heart ache to think about it.
