A big shoutout to my Granny and cousin Bonnie today, because they are both celebrating birthdays! I am so lucky to be inspired by such independent and empowering women in my family.
Today was my last full day in Florence before spring semester starts. I updated my planner (that I haven’t used in a month), bought a 5 subject notebook at Tiger and decorated it with stickers, cleaned the apartment and my room, and caught up with friends. Isabel, Louis, Megan, Alex, and I all had a snack at the Mercato before hiking up to Piazzale Michelangelo. The view is very different at night– even more peaceful than during the day.
I received my grades this morning and am thoroughly satisfied! My hard work paid off, and it’s a rewarding feeling. I am quite positive heading into spring semester!
Tomorrow I’m embarking on my final adventure of winter break. I am excited and a bit anxious to fly internationally on my own! I know Kiev has lots in store, and I cannot wait to see Sasha. Ciao for now, Florence! xo ~ e.
