Music like The Conversation soundtrack?

Hey, did you ever see The Conversation? Remember how the soundtrack was mostly one dude on a piano? Can you recommend more music to me like that, where it's really engaging and moody like The Conversation soundtrack, but it's also just one guy? [more inside]

Where Should I Study Abroad?

I'm a junior, and I have until tomorrow (!) to figure out where I want to study in the spring. I'd like to be somewhere in Europe - I study medieval European history in school - but I can't chose the right place. I want to go somewhere beautiful and culturally rich, continually stimulating and well located. I don't care about the language, and I grew up overseas so I don't need to choose a place that will expand my 'comfort zone'. Give me suggestions? I'm open to anything!

Beautiful study spaces in Toronto?

Are there any beautiful or inspiring study spaces in downtown Toronto? We're graduate students living in the Annex neighbourhood of Toronto looking for somewhere to think and write. We know the cafe scene, Robarts library, and have been to the Pratt library. Are there other interesting and exciting (but still quiet) places to get some work done when we want to get out of the house?

Lacking academic motivation...

Tips for a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship interview?

Anyone have any experience with the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship? I'm applying (this week!) and it was indicated to me that almost all applicants go through an interview process. Any tips, suggestions, ideas on how to sell myself? (Additional info: I'm a doctoral candidate in English, focusing on contemporary world literature from places of long term conflict. I've heard that literature folks are not as well received because they don't "Focus on humanitarian projects.")
