I Hate Flying….

I absolutely hate flying. I officially have two days until I fly back to the states, and I am not looking forward to it. Flying gives me horrible anxiety. And sometimes, when I have to get on a plane, I have very bad panic attacks. That is not good. But you know, the funny thing…

The Road Ahead…

At this point, sitting here, one of my remaining days in Italy, I am left alone with my thoughts to ponder them. But instead of sitting here, drowning in self-pitty and sorry, I guess that I can just take action. It’s never too late to be who I might have been, right? Well the point…

So…What’s Next?

Who hear remembers The Hills? Well I do, right? Glamorous world, glamorous life. The people we all secretly wanted to be. So why bring it up in my blog post? Well, I remember so well, in the series finale of The Hills, one of the girls asked Lauren Conrad what was next. And Lauren’s response…

5 Ways Traveling Will Help me in the Real World

Hello! Sorry that it has been a while since I have posted here. I have been traveling, and preparing for my last few days in Italy. As I prepare to say goodbye to a country and a city that I have come to call home, I had a couple of thoughts that I wanted to…

Full Circle

Well, it was September of 2014. I had taken a trip to Rome, Florence and Venice in Italy. I fell in love with the food, the culture, the history, the people. I even tossed a coin into the Trevi fountain. I vowed to come back to Italy, and I did. Here I am, in one…

You know me so well…

I’ve become rather accustomed to frequenting certain places while here in Italy. I have become a regular at restaurants like Pathos and this little quaint Bar Pizzeria. Well, I am not a big fan of change. If I find something that I like, I stick to it. You know? Why rock the boat, right? Well,…

Au Pair Decision Making??

Today, I was approached with the opportunity of becoming an Au Pair to a local family. That would mean extending my stay in Italy. And honestly, I will tell you that I am seriously considering that offer. I mean, why not, right? I do not particularly miss my friends all that much. I’m truly enjoying…

If I knew then….#whatIknownow

I have always had a penchant for travel and a zest for life. However, I have not always been good with my finances, let me just say (although I have learned from experience and my past mistakes). But years ago, I was also wrapped up in my boyfriend at the time (huge mistake, the guy…

Sometimes you have to get a little lost

One of the most terrible things in this world, in life, is to loose yourself. Loosing yourself, who you are, your identity, once it is lost, it was one of the hardest things to find your way back to. I see women doing it all the time, for instance, when they get into new relationships,…
