Inspiration is everywhere: it just depends on where you look. This post is to encourage everyone, not just journalism majors, to study abroad to find inspiration.
I am planning on traveling throughout Italy to experience the culture, art, nightlife, settings and especially, the language of a different country. If you have the chance, take it. You can experience a lifetime of memories in one semester, or maybe during the summer. For writers, you can find new inspiration where ever you turn, even in places you didnt think it existed. A close friend who is studying in the beautiful Netherlands said something to me that stayed in my mind.
“The people here work to live, and thats what they do, just live life.”
So whether you seek inspiration in your hometown or overseas, remember to keep your eyes wide and be open to new possibilities.
