Study Abroad!!!
So, on Friday, I found out that I got accepted into my school's study abroad program in Bologna, Italy!!! (At my school, most people tend to get in, but it's still nice knowing for sure.)

So, starting in the fall next year, I'll be in Italy for two whole semesters! I'm just so excited. And, just a bit nervous. But, more excited at the moment. Especially because this program is perfect for me, because it caters to political science majors.

Eeeee!!

Thanks!

SkyBluePink, I can't wait to travel! I'm going to have friends in England and Germany, and I'm definitely going to visit them. Not to mention as many other countries as possible.

Hmm...I wonder what the yarn selection is like in Bologna...

Congrats! I'll be in Australia next semester myself, but I have a friend who is currently on a study abroad in Rome and she LOVES it.

I never cared for Bologna myself. I guess it's ok fried.

How cool is that! I finished my master's in South America and it was definitely a life changing experience for me. Living in another country for a few months is nothing like travelling for vacations, it's not always easy at times but you won't regret it!
