Mego In America

Sad but true, I am in America. And I wish I was still in France. But don’t worry, I’m trying to scheme my way into somehow getting back over on that side of the pond by August/September. My new crackpot idea is going to get my Masters Degree there. So… we’ll see how that goes.

Anyways a wrap up of my last week (insert tears here) in France: hanging out. I just hung out all week, bought souvenirs, and pretended I wasn’t leaving. Pretty standard.

But I did spend my last day in Paris with my boyfriend which was super awesome. I did feel bad because I made him drag like 50 kilos of luggage through the streets of Paris, in the rain. I had like 25 kilos I was dragging because for some reason, I accumulated a ton of crap these past 8 months. Idk who knows how that happened. Anyways we spent the afternoon in Montmartre and going to the Sacre Coeur and also Buttes Chaumont. As last days in beautiful amazing countires go, it was nickel! That is what French people say instead of cool. Image


So now I am back in the US and I am sad… somebody give me a job in France!!!!


Roma Roma Roma!

Rome update!!!

So Rome was super awesome in every way possible. I had an absolutely fabulous fabulous fabulous time!!! 1. It was warm. 2. SO. MUCH. HISTORY. I got my serious nerd on (thanks history degree!) 3. PASTA! PIZZA! Need I say more?

Alright so it was the bomb diggity!!! I just walked around so much and saw as many cool things as I possibly could. I loved the Trevi Fountain and don’t worry, I threw 10 centimes in over my shoulder to ensure that I return to Rome again one day. I think the highlight of my trip may have been taking a nap at Circus Maximus. It’s just a park now but i passed out in the grass for 2 hours one afternoon and it was awesome. I had a little bit of a History nerd freak out, I mean sleeping on the Circus Maximus? Get outa here!

My other cool story is how a waiter at a resaturant passed me love notes and gave me free beer and free tiramisu one afternoon. I ended up kind of drunk at like 3pm from drinking a few pints. Then I thought it’d be a good idea to go to a museum but I learned the hard way that appreciating Renaissance paintings is a lilllll bit hard if you have imbibed. Generally because in all the paintings everyone is naked.


Well anyways here are some photos!!! Enjoy
