I’m official done with my finals and am a college senior!  Kind of scary, right?  I had three finals this week (hence the lack of posts) and was cramming ever since I got back from Tuscany.  I had no classes on Monday (it was a study day), one final and one class on Tuesday, and two finals on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, I had my architecture final.  I studied a lot for it and it paid off.  It was the easiest final I have taken in college!  Tuesday afternoon, I had my last film class.  We put the final touches on our film and watched both films during the final hour of class.  The big public screening is tomorrow night at the IES Farewell Party!

On Wednesday, I had two exams.  My first one was for Italy and the European Union.  It was challenging, but I think I did all right on it.  My second one was for my Memory and Conflict course.  I felt very prepared for that final and think I did well on it!

Now, I am done!  I am going to Saint Peters’ Basilica early tomorrow morning to see it one last time.  Then, it is my friend, Tahli’s, 21st birthday and a bunch of us are going to go to the beach to celebrate it for a few hours.  Afterwards, we are all going to come back and go to the IES Farewell Dinner.  It is kind of scary that I am already done with this semester.  It feels like I just got here yesterday!  It flew by!

On Friday, I am going to do as much of Rome as I possibly can in one day.  I hope to see the main sites one last time before I head home early Saturday morning!  It is going to be a crazy and amazing next few days in Roma!
