study abroad - florence, italy
here's hoping i don't get arrested and/or killed

Italia

i’m currently sitting on my bed looking around at my empty room, ready to leave my apartment for the airport in 40 minutes…. i feel like i’m gonna cry. sooo dramatic but ughh, ima miss you so much firenze!! i had been looking forward to going back home, but now that’s it’s actually time to leave…. WAHHHHHHHH.

last night was the most perfect last night ever. we went to the club central park and the dj’s literally played every single one of our fave songs that we aquired over the whole semester. that NEVER happens. miami to ibiza, hey nah nah nah, mr. saxobeat, one, barbara streisand, and a million more. my red bull vodka kept me pumping for 3 hours on the dance floor and we made a bunch of random friends with db italian guys lololol but anyways….

this whole semester has been absolutely amazing. i’m so so so glad i chose to came here over all other cities. i had the most gorgeous awesome apartment, the best fun apartment mates, and classes that i actually learned a lot from and actually enjoyed. as awk and cliche as it sounds, i feel like i changed and grew so much. ahhhh, this is so sad. DON’T MAKE ME LEAVE!!!

amo l’italia, mi mancherai tanto. grazie per un semestre stupefacente, e io ti rivedrò presto.

xoxoxoxo

FREEDOM

well, almost….
i was SUPPOSED to be done with all finals today, but my goddamn publishing design class was a mad house with 13 girls trying to print and cut all their flip books at once. sooo long story short, i have to go in tomorrow on what was supposed to be my first day of absolute freedom and finish my final project. mehhh, at least all the test shit is outta the way. think i did pretty good on all of them too, but that’s not a hard feat seeing as all the classes here are pretty much a joke compared to chappy-town lol. damn i’m gonna miss being able to half-ass my way through an entire semester lolzzzz

we went to cinque terre on sunday and it was absolutely beautiful!

it was a 3 hour train ride and we started the day off with a two hour hike that pretty much killed me. it was gorgeous but omfg my legs are still suffering. it was SO hilly and the paths were so rocky, i almost died about 20 times.

after the hike, we had lunch right on the ocean at this amazing restaurant with delicious pizza. i got the nostromo pizza which has tomato sauce, mozzarella, onions, and TUNA FISH. which may sound disgusting but idgaf, i’m obsessed with tuna and it tasted deeeeeeelish. also, it was fucking GIANT. everyone else got these cute, normal size pizzas and then mine comes out last and it’s twice the size of everyone else’s lololol loved it.

after lunch we walked around for a little bit and looked at souvenirs/got gelato. then we took a short train to the next city over where the best beach is. it was gorgeous, the water was so incredible blue and beautiful. when we got there, i found this little drink place that was selling pina coladas and i totally freaked out- it’s literally been my dream to have a pina colada while lounging out on a beautiful beach. well that dream came true yesterday and it was perfection.

the train ride home was hilarious slash so bad at the same time. it was mega packed and we couldn’t find seats so we had to sit in the little box room in between cars, some of us on the floor and some on these ghetto ass pull down seats that were NOT comfy. keep in mind, this was another 3 hour train ride to get back home.
-_________- we made it fun though of course, and called our lil ghetto room purgatory aka “the purg” lololol.

STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

new fave club? CENTRAL PARK! it just opened last week and we needed a wednesday night replacement for Yab, so we went last night… it was so awesome, it’s all outdoors which i LOVE cause i get so fucking hot in clubs that i look like i literally just took a shower but really i’m just obnoxiously sweaty lolz

the whole club set up was awesome- there was a dance pit and VIP tents and awesome lights/bars, plus they had platform cage things that we def took control of at one point in the night. they played good music too for the most part which always makes or break a club night.

creepers were out in full swing though, more so than any other club i’ve been too. i really don’t understand what gives these mothafuckas so much self confidence, especially when you loudly say NO to them, jerk your hand away, and move spots on the dance floor to get away- some STILL don’t get the hint though and keep trying to grind up on you… i just don’t understand it. like i am being so obvious about not wanting to dance with you, why oh why are you still trying??? gtfo creepers!!

um and lets talk about how these slutty ass drunk fucking bitches who didn’t want to wait on the SHORT line for the bathroom literally pulled their undies down in front of EVERYONE and peed outside in a corner. i was in total shock slash laughing my ass off, i mean really?? how more disgusting and trashy can you get?? their pee was literally flowing on the ground towards the bathroom line, i had to step over it on my way outside. in-fucking-sane.

all in all though, tip top night lololol

embarrassing moment of the day:

so i went grocery shopping this morning and bought a nice big 1.5 liter bottle of water while i was there. they were really busy so i tried to bag all my things as quick as possible cause they give you dirty looks if you’re still there when the next customer comes up to the register. i stuffed the water bottle into my purse and got outta there. when i got out and start walking back to my apartment i realized i was a little thirsty from all that power-bagging, so i grab the water out of my purse and open it- little do i realize that the water i had actually grabbed was FIZZY water and it had been shaking up in my purse for a good minute… i’m not exaggerating when i say the watter bottle turned into a geyser on the sidewalk- and of course it had to happen right as a group of people were walking past me. i got them and me ALL WET. omg it was ridiculous! i’ve never power-walked so fast out of a situation in my life. i got to walk the rest of the way home with my face and entire front all wet too.

AND I DON’T EVEN LIKE FIZZY WATER!!!!

SO last night was Yab’s closing party!!! sad day but we most certainly went out with a bang kekeke.

we decided that in honor of the occasion we’d wear heels- we were all like “we miss heeeeelsssss blah blah blah” cause we haven’t worn them since we were in the U.S…. yeah, needless to say we do NOT miss them anymore. my feet are most likely mangled for life.

ANYWAY, so we get to yab and we see they’re setting up for these fashion show things they sometimes do before the dancing starts and we’re like wahhh we just wanna dance now, eff thissss- but THEN we realize that it’s not a fashion show, it’s a mothafucking MR. TALENT competition…. and the men are BEAUTIFUL!! so we’re in heaven and im takin a million pics as they walk down the aisle thing and before i know it, they’ve all changed backstage into lil undie things and they’re stripping on the catwalk!! omg was seriously in heaven.

after that they started playing their usual fab music and we danced the night away. since we’ve got an in with the promoters we got into the VIP section of the club- sippin on a free red bull vodka and dancing on platforms, yeaaa buddy!

it was raining a little bit when we left to go home but it actually felt really nice since i was a sweaty ass bitch, what else is new. only thing was, we seriously could. not. walk. our feet hurt so much from dancing in heels. like not even exaggerating, all of us were literally hobbling along at a snail’s pace, we looked like old ladies/the hunchback of notre dame, it was so pathetic. finally we decided, fuck this, and took our shoes off and frolicked home barefoot in the rain lololol

the whole night i had been looking forward to getting a chicken kebab since they are heaven on earth so we made a pit stop at our apartment to change into sweats and put on actual shoes and then we went and got the yummiest creations EVA. i was talking to a presh girl who was waiting to get a kebab in line and her and her friend had a whole mess of roses that they didn’t want and asked if we wanted them- we misunderstood her tho and thought she wanted to sell them to us when she actually was just gonna give them away for free, but when we left the kebab place they were sitting abandoned on a table outside so we snatched them up and went home with kebabs & roses.

such a good last yab night! i will miss you yab, you will always be my faaaaave :D

24 more days

and then it’s ciao ciao italia! it’s so weird to think about, these past 3 months have gone by so unbelievably fast. this has been the most laid back, stressless semester i’ve ever had. classes only 3 days a week with hardly any hw, no job, no film/play auditions, no rehearsals, no spending 3 quarters of my life in a dodge editing suite, no memorizing lines, little to no studying, and no papers (except for one here that i plan on doing the night before its due lolz).

it’s all been pretty surreal. i feel like it’s been almost TOO laid back. not having something i should be doing at all times freaks me out, i’m not used to it! don’t get me wrong, it’s been reaaal nice to have so much free time, but i am definitely looking forward to being busy again. my last semester self would literally kill my present self for saying that lolz it’s true though. i went from two extremes so quickly- being stressed out of my mind from all the work i constantly had and not enough time to finish it all, to having so much free time idk wtf to do with myself.

now watch, this is all gonna bite me in the butt when finals week comes around and i’m studying/finishing projects 24/7, debating suicide from lack of sleep and high anxiety/stress levels. -______________-

last 3 weeks & 3 days, let’s do this!
