nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them...– voltaire
sure it looks like green robutussin, and takes like straight anise…but it works wonders. i woke up this morning feeling completely rested. i still have a hint of a scratchy throat…but also two more nights of hefty doses…ahh wonderful
sick in tuscany
what started out as a sore throat has now evolved into a full force cold..or so i’m thinking. the throat is no longer sore but constant coughing spells have become a burden for myself as well as everyone around me. i’m blaming saturday’s inclement weather..you see, this past saturday, we embarked on our field trip to assisi and perugia. both hilltop cities were beautiful..until...
a jaw dropper looks good when he walks he’s the subject of their talk...– daydreamer, adele
you know what i hate?
waking up with a sore throat. it’s never too serious, but it’s always uncomfortable enough to make your day mediocre at best. you hope it’s allergies…or even just a cold, anything but strep. hot tea helps and cough drops provide temporary relief..throughout the day, you get distracted, and forget about it..that is, until the sun has set..you’ve tucked yourself into...

one month. that’s right folks, exactly one month until the big 2-1.
italian cuisine is delizioso, but..
i miss chinese take-out, and my mom’s oatmeal cookies, and all you can tortilla chips on mex nights, and pancakes…blueberry pancakes, and hummus, and umm peanut butter of course.
mi piace il gelato

this could be a dear meat post..
dear pixar enthusiast, i recall informing you that that day was supposedly the shortest day of the year. i also recall you telling me that it felt like the longest. i still have no idea what you meant by that. and now, looking forward to tomorrow, which in fact, is the longest day of the year, i hope to experience what you felt that day. i’m just curious. sincerely, an old(er) friend

we made it. four hours on the bus, but the drive was well worth it. i fell in love with the town immediately. sometimes it feels surreal, walking through the tuscan town, interesting people all around, music playing outside, gelato signs in every direction, and the smell of pizza following you everywhere. we had a couple days before classes actually started, which was nice…despite the...

from caserta to roma
after four lovely, but very busy days in vico we began our trek to roma. we made a “quick” stop in caserta and then continued on our way. the drive was lovely..actually that’s i lie, i don’t really remember the drive. pretty much anytime we hop on the bus, i fall asleep instantly. it’s most likely the result of walking miles and miles everyday as well as waking up by...
crispy m&m’s are definitely still on the market in italy.
it took about ninety minutes to reach naples. the second we arrived, i was already missing paris..paris was chic and bright, and naples was grungy and mundane. we made two stops: the capodimonte museum (charles vii’s weekend retreat) and the archeological museum. the first museum was beautiful, inside and out. room after room was filled with paintings..i found myself appreciating the...
seems to have become less of a burden. didn’t attain too many hours last night, but i woke up feeling rested..i also managed to take a lovely nap at our hotel pool in vico equense today, yet still feel tired tonight. blue skies and hot rays must be the cure.
parigi, poi napoli
the solo adventure from paris to naples was just that, an adventure. sarah i took the metro together for as long as we could. two stops later, we went our separate ways. i managed to find a couple who also was making their way to the airport, clutch. it was comforting to have them around. during the fifteen or so minute ride, i conversed with a very nice and friendly french native, he was probably...
