BUONGIORNO! I told myself that I wasn't going to start posting until I was actually abroad because that was the purpose of this blog but after thinking about it, I figured I would get all of you excited along with me.
Yesterday I picked up my student visiti and today I made the final tuition payment. It is official ladies and gentlemen, or I should say signore e signori, I am going!
To many of you on the outside of my inner circle of communication, this has been a very long and difficult process. Almost every step of the way there has been a hiccup, but with God with me, I have made it this far.
I am very excited and nervous, it hasn't hit me quite yet, but I am sure it will once I am there. School is not over yet so that is one thing that is helping to distract me. Finals are approaching and I am scrambling to get everything done. I have a crazy next few weeks ahead of me.
Here it is:
14th is my half marathon (I can't believe that it is almost here)
15th-18th I have finals
19th work until 11 then head to the aeroporto because I leave for South Carolina at 1
24th I return
27th is my first time in a casino! with kelly, obviously to people watch
30th I leave for Italy! my plane departs at 4pm :)
So! I have a crazy next few weeks but I love it! I am so excited and so blessed to have this opportunity! With thanks going to the big Guy upstairs and to my loved ones, I am just so thankful.
I hope this was a successful first posting and if you have any suggestions just let me know! I am obviously new at this :)
Con amore, Ciao!
p.s. 25 days
