Hi everyone! I am sorry for being a few days late on my blog post. My December was great though! I finished on a fairly strong note, and did well on all of my final exams and presentations. I was a little worried about my Econ class because the bulk of our grade is based on one midterm and one final, but I studied hard and ended up getting a B in the class. After my finals wrapped up, I spent the rest of my December hanging out with my family, working, and preparing for Italy!
It’s crazy to think it’s already here, but I leave to study abroad in Italy in six days! I have never been outside of the country before, so I am very excited but also a little nervous because I have no idea what to expect. I have been practicing basic Italian and German phrases too, so hopefully they will come in handy. We just found out our rooming situation and class schedules, and I will be living with two of my good friends, and I will be taking classes that should amerce me into Italian culture. I’ll keep this blog short because I don’t know much else about what is to come this month, but I can’t wait to update you all in a few weeks and tell you about my first month abroad!
I hope you all had a happy holidays, and once again thank you for reducing the burden of paying for college by myself. It has made my college experience much less stressful!
