Ciao, Italia

The bags are packed; now I will be forced to lug two fifty pound suitcases, one seventeen pound carry-on, and my purse through JFK, through the airport in Frankfurt, and to my new apartment in Italy--and pray that nothing is over the weight limit.

Needless to say, the sight should be quite an interesting one.

I've never been so nervous before in my life, but I am most looking forward to embracing a new culture completely. My goals include dressing like a stylish Italian woman (at least sometimes), learning to speak Italian (at least the important phrases), and cooking like an Italian (at least when I have free time).

I may not be updating much for another week, since orientation for my school is a week long. But as soon as I can, I will.

My first priority as of now? Buying European fashion magazines at my stop in Frankfurt---for WAY less than what I would be paying here.

Arrivederci, America!

P.S. How excited are you for Gossip Girl?! I hope iTunes puts it up as soon as the show is over.

Sorries all around

Wow, I completely stopped blogging. It started with work, and then getting my wisdom teeth out, and then all this college stuff, and trying to see all of my friends before they leave for school. Oh, and the Twilight saga plays a big part in my absence, too.

I really want to continue blogging though, especially since I'll be in Italy! So please bear with me as I get my shit together.
