So, last week while I was walking to my art history class (that I am no longer in), I saw a sign for a study abroad opportunity in Florence, Italy to take a class with two school faculty and another class at the school in Florence. Reading the poster, I got the impression that the deadline was way back in December and I had missed out. Oh well, I went to class and thought little more of it, other than a note to myself to check with one of the professors going to see if it may be an option to go the next summer.
Well, today I stopped into the professors office to ask her about Florence NEXT summer, and when I said “I think I’ve missed the deadline for this year, but what about next year?” She replied with “No, you haven’t missed the deadline. There are still a couple of weeks. Go talk to the off campus office about an application”. WHAT!!?!?! I could go to Florence this summer for 5 weeks and take classes and get credit? So I went to the off campus office, and now have an application.
Now, I am not sure if I am going. I’ve look at the cost of the program, the cost of flights, how much the recommend bringing for spending money and all that. I even spoke to my academic adviser who thinks it’s a great idea. So, the next step is figuring out how to pay for it, and finding out more about the class.
This is what I’ve been thinking about all afternoon. Dude. I might go to Florence and learn Italian (a thought that’s crossed my mind a bit over the last couple of years…). Dude. That’s really all I can say. But for now, I have to do homework and get ready for rehearsal. Life is sweet.
… Florence… wow.
