I haven’t written for a while but after a short break… welcome again.
I hope you’re all recovered after Sandy’s attack! I’ve heard that your pre-departure meeting was rescheduled but you ended up having a nice time in MODA Cafe that I used to visit quite often to grab a coffee while preparing myself emotionally to come to Italy 🙂
How have been these weeks for us, FIT students in Florence? Well, to be honest quite good. We attended an interesting Meucci milinery workshop and everyone had fun creating his or her own hat, we had also an amazing Thanksgiving potluck thanks to FITSA and obviously we’ve traveled a lot across Europe and even outside the continent on our own or with friends.
I’m also a part of the yearbook team and we’ve been working on it. It’s a lot of fun and you feel so satisfied when you see some results that look quite nice. If you enjoy writing, creating layouts or taking pictures, it’s definitely an extracurricular, you should join.
Now, similarly to the schedule of New York City’s campus, we’re approaching the time of final exams. Then, we’ll be enjoying the winter break and everyone’s so looking forward to it. However, December in Florence is not only about studying – FITSA is organizing a brunch in a place called Ganzo, we’re also going to see “The Nutcracker” and we’ll be ice-skating. I believe that on the 18th we’re also having Christmas dinner. I’m so exited!
I’ll see you in the mid-January! Can’t wait!
If you have any questions concerning you arrival or your stay in Italy, please feel free to ask.
