First Day of Class

I know I’m supposed to meet Italians to practice my language skills, but my new BFF is a German girl named Julia who speaks perfect English (I was totally kidding when I generalized Germans before, btw). She and I bonded over lunch and buying cell phones together and we feel equally lost in class. I forgot how hard I studied on my own the last time I was here.

The first day of classes were OK, not as structured as I’d hoped, but it’s only the beginning. I lost my travel pass already, but other than that things are great.

Last night I was dancing around my room because Back to the Future came on TV (in Italian). I had wine in my hand and mushroom ravioli on the stove. It was a nice way to unwind after an afternoon of sightseeing.
