Update: Semester at Sea is out the window. After some thought, there's just no way I can raise that much money. I'd be better served by taking the money I will get - probably about $7000, maybe a bit more - and using that for a nice semester in Utrecht. It works out nicely - like I said, I can go do that swim in Boston, then fly over, stay until just before Christmas, come back, and have my last semester here. I'll be in a place I know, where I have friends, where I know the language, and where I can swim, plus I can use the time to check out career opportunities with the language (whether that's with an airline, an embassy, or something entirely different). Plus I can take CINIAC-level Dutch at Boswell, as well as Spanish - I have no more required courses, so I can do essentially whatever I want. Plus, I can live in a house with other Dutch students, and I'll have a student card which will get me into Olympos, the sports center, so I can swim.

See - it all works out! Even though I won't get to see Venezuela and South Africa... snik snik... :'(

OK, time to leave for swimming...
