week one.

So I have officially been in Italy for a week, and it is has already been a life changing experience. First off I have four really great roommates; Elsie, Anna, Mirrie, and Lizzy. We are getting along really well.
I am still trying to get my bearings around the city, but I am finding it much easier to navigate around. I have so much exploring to do but I have plenty of time..
With that, my Early Renaissance class is also an on site course, so more than half of our class is spent out and about in Florence touring the local Cathedrals and monuments as well as weekend trips to Pisa and Rome ect. Saturday I am off to Ravenna :)
My other classes are really exciting too, I have intermediate Ceramics, Painting Conservation, and Screen Printing.. I can’t wait to start my projects. I am obvious a little nervous but I am going in with an open mind and a creative heart.
I miss everyone already, but homesickness has not hit me yet, I really hope it doesn’t because when I am homesick, I am miserable and I do not like that feeling.
..here’s just a taste of what I have seen so far.
