A fellow VJ'r prompted me to do this thread, we live in a small world. I won't name the fellow VJ'r just in case they wish to be anonymous but we went to the same high school in Singapore.

So, how many of you USC's here went to Elementary, Middle and / or High School overseas?

I'll start:

Singapore American School, Sophomore and Junior year of high school '81 -' 82........BEST DAMN SCHOOL I EVER ATTENDED!!

Hmmm....I did preschool in Madrid, ages 1 year to 4 years. But I don't think that counts :) It does explain the random Spanish phrases I knew before I started taking Spanish classes.

Then I did a semester study in Dublin sophomore (or junior?) year of college.

Me too :(

I did go on a class summer trip all over Spain, but I don't think that counts. I wish I'd had the motivation to be an exchange student!

I did my first semester of college in Paris but came home because I (sob) missed my boyfriend. Oh well, I was 17, I guess I can't be too hard on myself...
