November 10th

It was sort of a lazy morning around the house and I slept in a little bit. That is for sure one thing that I am going to miss about here, the fact that I was able to sleep in. I spent most of the morning catching up on homework for my Italian class and also updating my blogs. I really really want to get better about blogging again because I know that there are going to be so many things I will forget if I don't have them written down. This has been an amazing experience so far and I don't want to forget a single moment.

I was able to skype with mamma during our regular time of her morning and my afternoon right before I head to class on Tuesday and Thursday. I went to one of the school buildings to give my final portion of my payment for my Rome trip on the 19th and got some gelato on my way to class. Italian class we reviewed our homework and then went to get gelato for one of our in class assignments of being able to order things at restaurants. This is a skill that I perfected early on thanks to Mrs. Marshall's tapes that she lent me. The gelataria is located right near my apartment but because I got gelato on my way TO class, I just talked a little in Italian to my professor instead of purchasing it. I left class with a few friends and went to purchase a purse that I had seen the other day and fell in love with it immediately. It took me about 30 minutes to actually purchase the bag because it was rather expensive but I decided that since it would be my Christmas present that it would be ok. That didn't stop me from freaking out and wondering if I had made the correct decision or not and so I had a minor freak attack. It is ok though now and I have stopped freaking out about it, notice that I am writing this three days later. The purse is gorgeous though and it is my one expensive purchase to myself because I decided to not buy boots or a leather coat while I am here. I don't think I can pull of cool leather jackets, I am not hip enough.

I came home and I skyped with Kelly for a bit and it is nice to be back on the schedule we had when I first got here. She and I both got so busy with school that it was hard to keep the schedule but hopefully now we will be able to continue. I worked on homework and then straightened Courtney's hair. I had dinner of my left overs from dinner with Freddy and Adrian and it was almost more delicious the second night than it was the first night if that is even possible. I skyped with Danae for a little bit and it was a lot of fun to catch up. I finished the night with watching Charlie St. Cloud and heading to bed early because I had to wake up early the next morning for my vineyard trip. In conclusion, Charlie St. Cloud was a dumb movie and I am thankful that Chris never allowed me to force him into watching it.

Con amore, Ciao!
