Florence – Spring 2016
This spring semester I am studying abroad in Florence, Italy. I am excited to share with you all of my adventures, observations, and experiences.
I will tell you this, I have absolutely fallen in love with this city and if financially permitted, will buy an apartment here one day and visit twice – no – three times a year. Maybe four.
Don’t get me wrong; New York is and will always be my favorite city. It is home, and I have had a pinch of homesickness. But that’s expected, I suppose. To miss all those emotionless, fast paced, workaholic zombies? Hell, I am one. And the culture shock of this new world is precisely what I signed up for. I needed a change of scenery, a dip into the world outside of my Manhattan-based bubble.
You’re invited to read all about it, of course.
More About Me:
Let’s be real for a second. College is about getting that tiny, square, beige piece of FedEx paper with your name on it.
It comes to you after four years of tears, tantrums and all nighters. Post graduation, you may get that dream job that you’ve worked tirelessly hard for, or end up washing dishes at your local Applebee’s. Whatever the outcome, it’s social protocol that you get that degree.
I don’t want to be so cynical as to say college is no-good waste of time. I enjoy my classes and my major, I have fun with my friends and my activities. And I AM excited to become a teacher. There are just some nights where being a well-known published author is a way better deal. Scratch that; every night.
As a Junior in college studying to become a an elementary school teacher, I come fully prepared to share with you the adventures of school, my short stories and poetry, as well as my personal life. It may not make you a millionaire, but it might still tickle you in that special place.
