Hi my loves.
So much has happened - I don't have time to talk a bout it all because unlike usual I forgot to prepare my blog post ahead of time, before I actually got to the internet. The days when I could spontaneously blog... well, those are gone. =)
My honors project got approved, Professor Perrin is most likely going to direct it although there are a few wrinkles to iron out, I will be living and working on campus over the summer (and I so look forward to seeing all of you that live close - we need to make weekend trips to the beach or something! Or perhaps the Ren Faire, Lucy?), and most importantly of all (which I almost hesitate to talk about), there's a doctor who thinks he knows what Dad's sick with and thinks he can fix it. So! =)
Things are full. Woodblock printing class is amazing, I love Katie and Elena and am so glad I'm living with them next year, I got to hang out with a Franciscan monk from Assissi this afternoon, I'm consuming vast quantities of gelato and coffee (the best place to get internet is, ironically, at a bar, and since I don't want to consume copious amounts of alcohol, I consume copious amounts of coffee whenever I try to connect with the outside world via teh interwebs). Graduation is approaching for all of you Messiah-ites... I wish that I could be there! I'm missing all of you, and I'm so looking forward to the days when I can see you all every week at least (even if we're nuts as seniors and can't see each other every day. And even if maybe our group has grown to fill up with people I don't know). Where are you all living next year? Katie, Elena, and I are living in Mellinger.
Tonight we're going out to dinner at a really nice place... nonna amelias? I'm not sure how to spell it. But it sounds vaguely like that. Oh, and Lucy - I met Lucy and Charley from the Oxford semester - they came out to visit Jeff and Orvieto. And also, Prague got cancelled, so what weekend would work good for me to come out and visit you or vice versa? We will have to plan. 'Cause I really do want to see you this semester! My schedule is very open - just let me know what works best for you, because it sounds like you have an actually intense academic semester, where for me it is mostly just messing around. =D (Shhhh.... don't tell Skillen I said that! I heart him, but I get distracted way too easily here in Italy.)
So, loves, until I have time to do a real post.... I heart you! Don't leave me next year! Let's all be back together at least sometimes! I'll host weekly pro tempore dinners? Yes?
