Man makes plans, and Zeus laughs.

Hey guys. I’m super excited to be blogging to LUC this semester. To fill you in right quick, I was at the John Felice Rome Center last semester (Spring of 2012) so this is my round 2. Last semester was unbelievably amazing but the time flew by so I feel extremely lucky that I get to do it all again in two weeks. I hope this next semester goes as smoothly and wonderfully as last semester did, and that my life in its current state is not a precursor for the next 16 weeks.

If I told you I knew more than 2 people attending the JFRC this fall, I would be lying. If I told you that I had my passport, I would be lying. And if I told you that I had my visa, I would have lied to you once again. However, if I told you that I broke my foot two days ago, I would not be lying. In the end, not knowing too many people who will be at JFRC in the fall isn’t a terrible thing. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and judging from the Fall JFRC Facebook group, it doesn’t look like there’s going to be a shortage of people eager to discover Rome. (A city where I already know the bus system. Boom.) But Rome isn’t exactly the most handicap friendly city I’ve ever visited and I can’t help but be a little worried about it. Thankfully, if I don’t get my passport/visa, I won’t have to worry about any of it! No really, I’ve been assured by the Los Angeles Consulate of Italy that I will have it by the time I leave but it’s all just a little stressful. Fourteen days away seems so close and yet for some reason I feel like I’m missing a few essentials. Alas, c’est la vie. It will all work out, right? The next time you hear from me I’ll hopefully be in Rome. A presto!
