The Stanky Leg
I have some catching up to do.
Unlike the other two this will be about my eighth move in the past 16 years and i am quite used to such frequent change and easily accept it but as you get older even if you understand moving and the reasons behind it happening it gets harder. When you’re older you have more friends different types of friends and different connections to them all. And no matter if youve accepted a parting of...
The Eternal City
Rome is nicknamed “The Eternal City.” I’ve heard that’s because no matter what happens or changes in the city the evidence of its greatness is everlasting. This is true, everywhere you go in this city you find something different, beautiful, and probably really old.

There is something really human about them. If you have never had to said good bye in a big way, well then I guess it should be described as heartbreak. My heart was broken several times tonight.

I had to run out and get a few things for my camp next week, and my brother told me a should go alone, but I insisted that he come, and sure enough some creepy guy tried to talk to me outside a...
Last Day of School
Now it’s my turn to share my feelings about the last day of school. I have been living in Rome the longest out of all three of us, so I basically grew up here. I can’t imagine ever leaving this place and these people, yet here I am with five weeks left in this city. I walked out of my school today for the last time and oddly enough I didn’t cry. I didn’t even feel sad,...
Last Day of School
It might seem rather abrupt to jump right into the emotions of leaving with out sharing anything, but due to the fact that this is fresh in my mind, I will share it with you now. I’ll miss these people. As strange and crazy as they are. A niche here, I have seem to filled one. I don’t know what will happen once it is empty, but I suppose I’d say that I don’t feel any...
