I can hardly believe my life is my life right now. As I type I’m sitting on a fast train to Florence going through the Italian countryside. Honestly, how can this be real? How is it even possible? Of course I know the simple answer. Senior year I applied to Northeastern, decided to go, and in my first semester applied to a Documentary Filmmaking and Roman Culture dialogue. But even knowing that it’s hard to believe this is my reality. It’s just too… awesome.
Of course nothing’s ever perfect. I still miss everyone from back home loads and all the incredible things I used to get to do. I almost hate the fact I’m moving on to a new chapter of my life because that one was so much fun! But I guess that’s what memories are for. And who’s to say there aren’t even better times ahead?
Even though I still don’t know precisely what I want to do with my life, I am starting to understand the person I want to be. I want to be someone who works hard for what she wants, and never gives up. Someone who tells those around her she loves them and can make anything fun. Someone who knows how to be professional and easy-going, who can always have a good time. And for right now, that’s all I need. Some good music, a couple friends, and the promise of adventure. That’s my life. Any questions?
