Advice for next year... Please help!|
So I will be spending the next Fall most likeley in Sweden. The issue is the Spring 2005. What should I do? I don't want to stay in Sweden for a year because I'd rather see more countries. I am nervous about Japan, because the culture shock may be too much for me. I am concerned about New Zealand, because it may be too similiar to America. I don't want to stay here because I need to leave this place. Help!
Turned out I can't post a poll having a free account - so please comment with your choice. I want to see MANY comments!
Where should I go in Spring 2005?
A. Stay in Lund, Sweden
B. Go to Yokohama, Japan
C. Kick it at Auckland, New Zeland
D. Return and do the last semester at Haas

If you hate it here so much, go wherever you think would be the most fun, Auckland, Yokohama, Lund, or somewhere else =P

Not so much hate, as boredom. :)
Could you be more specific with the advice though?
Whatever makes you happy. That's the best advice I can think of =P If you're worried about culture shock, try to learn more so you won't be shocked. Talk to people who have been to Japan, look stuff up online, etc. If you're worried Auckland will be too tame, again, research online or ask people about their experiences. Or maybe you'll get to Lund and love it to death and want to marry a girl from Lund, settle down, have Lund-y babies, and live there forever. =P And then next spring go with whichever feels right. =)
Come to Japan! I will make my way to Yokohama and you can visit me in Hamamatsu!!!!!!!!
That isn't a biased opinion at all. (^_^)

езжай в иокогаму, к чёрту культурный шок
I'd go to Japan if I were you... how often do you have that opportunity?
yeah, go to wherever it would be hardest to get into otherwise. getting the chance to live in new zealand is pretty open since you speak english and i'm pretty sure they still let people in easily if you're under 26.
sweden you will already have been in,
go to japan.

as a former exchange student who's been around the world a few times, take these words seriously: ONE SEMESTER IS NOT ENOUGH. not of japan, not of sweden, not of anything.

Yes, but is two semesters of one country better than two one-semesters in two countries? This is my last chance to study abroad.

one country, for sure.

Which country for the second semester then? Or am I missing something?

the same one, silly.

No, no, you missed the point. The biggest attraction from Scotland will most likely be in New York at that time. :(

My vote goes to japan. Though I hear it's great in Italy during spring.
