What to wear?

1) Work

2) The heat

3) Summer Classes

4) Not have a bus stop I can walk to

5) Riding the bus

haha I am going to try and think of things to post that I like about summer…

I miss my friends…

It's been almost two months since I got back from Rome..that's a terrible thing to type. I don't want to believe it. Even so, I am doing much better than I was a month ago! I still miss my friends but I am beginning to understand what it is like not to see them everyday. I am glad to be feeling back to myself (although I still have my romesick days)! Plus, I just have to remember that next weekend I will be with Kelly (and one direction) and then shortly after that Travis and Jan are coming to visit :) 

Villa Pamphili with Jan!

Frigidarium with Will! 

Piazza Santa Maria with the gals :) 

Haha my favourite 'moment' in Rome….with Sophia and Travis.

Should I finish up my Rome posts?

I wasn't going to post anymore of my Rome pictures, but after looking through where I left off I feel like you guys missed a lot! Plus, I think posting them will help me feel better now that I am home :)

So....fasten your seat belts because we are all going back to Rome!

p.s. I know that all was very cheesy but you know what, #nores

Things I don't miss (Rome Edition):

1) The slow computers in the John Cabot labs

2) Walking up the stairs to my apartment

3) The rain...almost everyday

4) Going to my Italian Class

5) The kitchen sink full of dishes (Sophia will know what I mean haha)

Things I miss (Remembering Rome).

The sound of espresso cups hitting onto their saucers.

The way the night sky reflected onto Tiber River.

The fountains on street corners.

Smiling at my guy from the market as I walked to class.

Waking up and opening my shutters (and seeing Sophia).

My nutella doughnuts and Naomi who always knew what I wanted for dessert.

Sitting on the train on the way to Tony and Maria's house.

 Going grocery shopping and buying my usual items. 

 Saying 'Buona Giornata'.

Doing grandma kisses when I said goodbye to my friends.
