BOSTON, April 2 - It’s been four quick months since my semester at JCU. And now that I am back in the States I am plagued by wistful thoughts of la dolce vita. You know: gelato, crazy motorinos, and incredible Aristocampo panini.
As I sit here in the BC library thinking of internships and assignments, I wonder: is it my selective memory bringing me back, or did I once live something out of the movies? Looking back, the semester seems so surreal.
Rome is surreal. On any given day you can walk where emperors once walked and gladiators once fought. You are a part of fashion being created. It’s not uncommon on a Wednesday to see the Pope at St. Peter’s on a break from classes. Today, a break consists of an appointment with a professor about my latest 20-page paper. I’ll be praying to the Pope for an extension.
