i heart art...among other things

So, graduation is coming up

And while I'm so very excited to celebrate my amazing accomplishment,

I may be slightly more exited to see this face:

I'm trying to stay motivated to study for finals. heck I'm trying to stay motivated to do anything this week. other than watch Veronica Mars (and plan my week with Jantz and dream about Europe). I'm only a little bit obsessed...

It still hasn't sunk in completely that I'm leaving to another country - another continent - in

9 days.

No seeing my friends, no talking to anyone (well, except for the brief "I'm here, I'm alive, I miss you, and I really love you" phone calls), no time to think, no break from the horde of girls I'll be spending all of my time with (not that i don't love girls, i am one after all, i just don't pride myself on befriending them), no familiar comfort foods/places/people to turn to.

Of course, there are about a million amazing things that I will be doing. And I can't wait for those parts :) such as.....

seeing my most favorite works of art
walking on ancient ruins
walking through hundreds of museums and churches
eating delicious culinary creations
being immersed in different cultures
really feeling like an art historian - like i'm finally legit
did i mention looking at art? that is by far going to be my favorite part. because
I heart art
(with an extra emphasis on the heart part)

on a side note...
i keep wanting to spell
among, "amoung".
what is up with that?

Song of the Week: Today was a Fairytale by Taylor Swift. So cute. And, well, a girl in love can't really not love this song I think.

My summer adventure is quickly approaching. I think I have 22 days left. whoa. I'm getting more and more excited. My backpack finally came and I'm looking forward to cramming all of my belongings into it:

I'm most excited for the food. In case you didn't know, I LOVE FOOD. I'm planning on making these apart of my regular European diet:

Oh, and you can be jealous now :)
