for what, you might ask?
making travel plans! here are the latest:
-february 28-march 2, i'll be in paris
-march 8-march 15th, i'll be in spain hopping between malaga, cadiz, seville, barcelona, and perhaps (a ferry ride permitting) tangier in morocco
-april 4-april 6, i'll be in london (SURPRISE SHARON)
-and (drum roll please), it has been decided that after my semester ends, i'll be spending most of my time in italy! i already have two travel partners from my program who are on board as well.
also, for those of you more economically inclined (aka mom), my flight to london cost 10 euro, or $13.
i think my mantra for study abroad will always remain: i'm not complaining.
