typewriters just make me think a lot. if i had one, i'd write a lot of poetry with it, and hang the writing on my walls. maybe that sounds conceited or something, but there's something ancientlyish inspiring about typewriters.
I suggest everyone study abroad if they have the chance. It is the chance of a lifetime and makes you grow so much. It is the best experience ever and I wouldn't want to change it for the world. I did a year-long study abroad for school year.
