[sticky post] Intro  
Hello! As it says in my blurb over to the left, my name is Aidan and I'm a UMBC Asian Studies/History student studying at Yonsei in Seoul for my 2015-2016 junior year. This will serve as a record of my application experience, studying abroad itself, and my travels. Please be sure to let me know if you have any questions!
