Ciao bellas!! Well, here I am, on a desktop computer in my school's resource center for the second week in a row due to the death of my Macbook cerca 2011 (RIP you poor thing, praying for one last miracle). What a time!!! To be alive!!! Anyways, as I prepare to embark on spring break this weekend, I've been finishing up last minute papers, assignments, class scheduling (excuse me, senior year???? jokez) in order to cross off this to-do list of mine that has arisen from the dead and smacked me in the face (STUDY abroad they said, huh). SOOO, to avoid my art history paper on Donatello's Bronze David (sorry Professor Massini), I'd rather tell y'all about my weekend in Barcelona!! Que divertida!!!
WOW oh WOW was my heart full this weekend!! My first ~solo~ trip from Rome to celebrate Schwarz's 21st birthday was quite the success! I got to squeeze my PEOPLE and spend an entire weekend eating brunch, drinking sangria, and catching up on the past 3 months of our lives that we've been separated (cruelty, really). Although the weather could have been better (torrential down pour and "extreme puddling" Friday wasn't ideal), we attempted to make the best out of it (RIP to our shoes, Emma's umbrella, and ANY sight seeing for the day). We enjoyed a family style Italian dinner (yes, Italian food in Spain, who am I), and did-like-the-Spaniards-do by attempting to keep up with their night life (@ Opium, I hope to never return). Although Saturday was a slower start for a majority of us, we still managed to make it to Brunch&Cake, the beach, and Bunkers in order to attempt to see the city before the weekend closed in on us.
I've made it quite a long ways from the beginning of my abroad journey and it's extreme lack of breakfast. Gma would be so proud!!! Barcelona not only brought me time with some of my favorite humans, but EGGS, PANCAKES, BACON and STARBUCKS ICED COFFEE. It's the little things people. T-6 weeks until Hazellewood brunch and as many cold pressed, American sized, coffees as my bank account will allow, but who's counting (oh, me).
