In exactly three days, I will be on flight out of the United States headed for the Florence Airport. It is pretty crazy to think that I am actually leaving the country for an entire semester. I had always talked about studying abroad but never actually thought it would happen. I have all of my things packed and ready to go. I have made my final to do list, hopefully I will have everything finished within the next 72 hours. Words cannot even begin to describe the pure excitement I have to be living and studying in a 16th century Italian villa in Sesto Fiorentino. As my nephew would say, this is going to be an awesome abdenture (adventure).
