Okay, to answer the international question, I am confining myself in the US for college...and probably for some years after that. But eventually, who knows where I'll end up.
Lately, my top interest has been California. I've been thinking all the different climates within the state, the beachiness of it, how some places have low humidity, and its sunshine. Right now, in northern Iowa, we've had heat advisories week after week, with high humidity and high temperatures. I'm glad it's not snow...buuuuuttt...I could live without it.
Anyway, I've been searching colleges out in Cali. I am getting more information from Pepperdine University, California Polytechnic University, and Sonoma University, where I am hoping the Sonoma cigarettes were not invented lol. I ideally want to go to college at a university that isn't in a major city like Los Angeles or San Diego. It has to have some sort of communications degree or journalism. I want a college with an equestrian club of some sort so I can still ride and be involved with horses. But, I wouldn't be against a college without an equestrian club as long as there was a stable nearby.
Any California college suggestions? Stable suggestions? Just any other information about California?
Oh, and what can I expect from a degree in communications or journalism or media? I want to be a news anchor, and I was wondering about some of the information on the job in California. Does it pay okay? That sort of stuff. I really want to stay out of deep debt, if you know what I mean. My sister is losing her house because she's in that deep of debt, and her family is going to have nowhere to stay because...well, her unemployment is a long story, but basically she got fired for the wrong reasons and can no longer work that job anywhere in the region, and her hubby is just entering a business where he didn't have to pay for any start-up but won't be getting a kickback on money for a while. Don't want to end up there.
Virginia and the Carolinas do sound lovely as well, but I do fear the high humidity. Is it bad?
