No way. You can read my article here - http://hubpages.com/entertainment/Where-to-Find-Go... - to get a glimpse of my experience. I had two amazing years, spent with friends I will have for the rest of my life, followed by two of what will likely always remain the worst years of my life (i.e., subsequent to a move out of the country).
You learn, though. It was tough at the time, but life's been pretty good since, and you won't have very much to write about without a few battle scars.
