I'm a film major and an art minor. I'm currently studying abroad in Florence, Italy. I love cake, baby animals, and awkward photos. Theater is my passion, film is my love, and photography is the whore I like to pimp out on a semi-regular basis.
I am working on a movie film! Since I doubt posting pictures of set would be allowed, here is a plant I am currently sitting next to. But that is why I have not written anything, because I am working/interning and I am lazy or busy when I am not on set. This movie does not have a title yet. We are filming a graduation scene and one of the very attractive actors just said hello to me. I like my job.
My one complaint- crafty is TOO good, I will never lose my Italy weight.
This photograph was taken by the crew on board the Columbia during its last mission, on a cloudless day. The picture is of Europe and Africa when the sun is setting. Half of the picture is in night. The bright dots you see are the cities’ lights. Note that the lights are already on in Holland, Paris, and Barcelona and that’s it’s still daylight in Dublin, London, Lisbon and Madrid .
I don’t want to go home!
Tomorrow I am waking up to go to my favorite gelato place in Florence, Il Re Gelato, to watch the owner make the gelato. My friends go there almost every day, and so he asked us today if we would like to come and see how the gelato is made. Our answers were resounding YESes all around. I can’t wait. I love this place. We chose to see him make cinnamon, which is one of their best flavors and one I’ve only seen there. I am going to recommend this place to anyone and everyone who goes to Florence.
Speaking of recommendations, I’m making up a list. I don’t know exactly how useful it would be to anyone, but it’s gonna be made.
I only have three more nights in Florence, and three full days. The last half of this semester especially went by way too fast, and I can’t believe it’s already ending. One one hand, I can’t wait to go home and see my friends (and my family, if I ever make it there… still waiting to hear about a potential internship. Hopefully I’ll get it!) and I’m way excited that I’ll be back before everyone takes off for the summer. I’m also way excited to be able to see all the APs I couldn’t work on this semester. But on the other hand I kinda wish this volcano would delay my flight just a few more days, so I can squeeze in everything I need to do still. Oh, and also so that maybe it will stop raining. We literally got about a week of beautiful Italian springtime before the weather decided to screw us over. Either way, Megan and I are climbing the Duomo tomorrow, and nothing will stop us!!
Firenze, ti amo. Non sei stato perfetto. Sei stato meglio.
I am not ready to leave.

In bullet points, since it was a month ago and I don’t feel like writing much more.
