Ok, my sincere apologies for not blogging for such a long time. We had midterms last week and then this week I ended up getting really sick and was bed-ridden for two days. Now I’ve been playing catch up in my classes since I missed school for two days. We had a “plague” going on in the dorms. It was a stomach 24-hour like flu. About ten people caught the plague, me never thinking I would be one of them when the outbreak first started. I distinctly remember these words coming out of my mouth, “I’m not worried, I never get sick”. The next morning I woke up throwing up. I guess I forgot to knock on wood when those words came out of my mouth. But I’m all better now, done with midterms and ready to continue with blogging!
I have realized that we only have about 4 weeks left here in Cortona. It has made me really want to take advantage of everything here. Its funny how you can be in a place for such a long time, then when you realize that its not going to be there any more, you really begin to take advantage of things.
But I have definitely been looking forward to some things when I get back to to the states. I have begun to get extremely tired with my wardrobe. I have had the same clothes here for this entire time, and I really am needing some variety! When I get home, I am going shopping for sure. I also am getting a hair cut. I think I’m realizing that long hair is not for me. I was trying to grow it out, but I am just continually frustrated with it, and I think I want to go back to having it short. I also can’t wait to eat healthy again. Fiber, vegetables and Starbucks! That is what I want. Ok, so enough of me ranting on about what Im doing when I get home…
We have begun planning our traveling for after the semester is over! I’m very excited to see other parts of Europe. We will be traveling for about 4 weeks. Some of the places we are going: Venice, Paris, Dublin, Barcelona, Prague, Salzburg (Sound of Music tour, yessss!) Munich and some other I can’t think of right now, and I fly out of London on December 17. We will be getting a Euro rail pass and traveling by train. I’m so excited.
This Wednesday we are going to Perugia for their annual chocolate festival! I am soo excited! I love festivals, and I absolutely LOVE chocolate, so I think that it will be great. This city is famous for their chocolate, and it is supposedly some of the best in the world. I will let you all know how it goes!
