Day 158: February 5, 2015
TIM has the worst customer service! The lady that I was dealing with kept checking her phone and answered calls from “Mamma.” She put my phone number incorrectly in the computer and blamed me because she thought my “7” was a “1”… instead of apologizing she just got mad at me. On the bright side I had a great day. Art History was very enjoyable. We went to the Palazzo Vecchio and the Leonardo da Vinci Museum. There was a lot of amazing art pieces. In the Palazzo Vecchio there’s a secret door which was awesome! I spent my entire evening editing the vlog for today.
Day 159: February 6, 2015
Jen, Alesha, Michael and I went to the Arno to try to find some shells but we didn’t end up looking because it was raining and the current was too rough and high. We ended up going to Lory before heading over to Erin’s. Jen, Michael and I made books with Erin, but we didn’t finish. We’ll have to go there again to add a cover and so something to the spine (I forget what it’s called). Jen and I went to eat at Gusta Pizza for dinner after. The cook made us heart shaped pizzas. So cute! When I got home I just edited another vlog. P.S. Jackie I got one of your postcards!
Day 160: February 7, 2015
I swept and mopped the floors, worked out, showered and picked up a couple of books from the studio. I tried Insanity but I didn’t like it. I found it challenging but boring. I tried the hip-hop version and I found that boring as well. I guess nothing compares to dance and Zumba. I spent all day and all night working on my Annotated Bibliography.
Day 161: February 8, 2015
I did groceries this morning and finished the Annotated Bibliography… FINALLY! I Skyped with my Mom. So nice talking to her. Adam is putting together his portfolios for university applications. I still remember assembling my portfolios. Time flies!
Day 162: February 9, 2015
I Skyped with Jp before class. Jen, Alesha, Aaron and I walked to the studio together. We then had class for three hours. I found Cat’s presentation to be very useful and informative. After class Montina, Amy and I went to grab a quick bite and did a little bit of shopping. I didn’t buy anything. In the evening we watched The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which was nearly three hours long! I personally thought the film was very boring and slow. I wouldn’t recommend watching it. For the rest of the night I just worked on my vlog.
Day 163: February 10, 2015
Today Jen’s brother, Stephen, arrived in Florence. Jen was right… they are very much alike. It’s so nice to see Jen super happy! For the entire afternoon and evening I worked on my Thesis. I finally had a breakthrough! After a month and a half almost I finally understand what my Thesis is about. It is such a relief! I feel much more confident. Not only did I work on my Thesis, but I also edited today’s vlog. I think it’s going to be a late night for me.
Day 164: February 11, 2015
I was stressing so hard over my critique with Aaron. It actually went really well. He was able to give good advice which really calmed me down. At 6:30 p.m. we had a guest artist come in and talk to the group. Her name was Regan Wheat. I really enjoyed the last piece she showed with the overlaying of voices. After the artist talk a bunch of us went to grab pizza at Forina 00.
