UM-BER-ELL-AH

So, remember this post in which I ramble on about the ICCS and how even if I don't get in I'll have a good time in Boston and at the end of which I essentially convince myself it's a good thing to stay in the US? Well, I'm going to Rome anyway. I got pulled off the waitlist just last Friday and now I have a shitton of things to do so that I can get to Italy legally.

The passport is the most annoying part because even expedited it takes four weeks, which is really time I don't have. So I have to make a special appointment when I only have two weeks left so that I can get it in a few days. But then I have to get my visa. Oh my.

Who cares if it's this stressful to get ready because when it's all over, I'll be living in Rome for three and a half months. Oh my god, I'm so excited.

I am sort of sad to go though, but I can always have great times in Boston and I know that for as long as this amazing group of people I rub elbows with sticks with me I will.

YEEEAAH! I might as well just contact you here since we can't seem to get a hold of one another over the phone. My program starts september 4th; i fly out 5:40 pm on september 3rd and arrive in germany at around 8:30 am on the 4th. After connecting in Germany, i'll arrive in rome at about 12:30 pm. I'm flying Lufthansa and I booked through STA travel. Apparently our apartments are very close to the spanish steps and borghese (sp?) gardens.

Some of the temple program attendees are putting together a Barcelona trip if you're interested. I'm also hoping to arrange some sort of trip to greece during the semester.

Also, did you tell the passport people that you need to get a visa? from what I understand, if they know you need to get a visa they'll try to get you your passport asap.


Anywho... Can you believe this is happening? I can't!

Hoooly shit, that's awesome! Wow, that is a ton of stuff to get done, but it's gonna be worth it. Haha, I shall add you to the ever-growing list of people studying in Italy this semester. Damn you kids.

When do you leave?
