Acting Out an Australian Adventure

I’m an acting student at my uni’s conservatory, and maybe against my better judgment, I’ve decided to study abroad for a semester. I’m headed to Brisbane, Australia. I’ve never been outside of the country before, so to go somewhere so far away is pretty cool. Last week I had a long talk with one of my professors about this, and to be honest he was pretty hard on me. Conservatory is not really built to accommodate study abroad, but I want to do it. I think it’s a great opportunity for inspiration. If I’m going to be an artist, I think I need to go out and see other places and experience other countries. So, how can I make the most out of my study abroad experience as someone who wants to nurture their creative side?
