"If anything can go wrong, it will". -Murphy’s Law
This quote is the perfect summary of my year abroad in the US.

But not a single time did I regret my decision to study at Butler University. All these experiences made me become closer with my friends.

If there's anything you can learn from my experience, it's that sometimes the worst experiences leave you with the best stories, and these experiences can bring you closer to people. Every study abroad trip has mishaps, but they don't have to set the tone for your whole semester or year. Learn to laugh them off and go with the flow. You'll have a much better time, and you'll learn that you can conquer any bad luck that comes your way.
