I decided to make a post here, because it is more fitting than my other blog: www.bolognastyle.wordpress.com because that one is more directed to things about italy and less about my personal life. I wanted to give an update incase anyone is still following me here...

I am currently in Padova for the summer-I was given 3 choices for how to spend my summer
1. Work at an art gallery in Positano 6 days a week and try to sell high end art work
2. Work on a boat in ponza
3. Work at a Famous Calzatura near Padova in the Information Systems Dept. (my degree is in this field)

I choose Padova, all though it was the least beatiful location ( I prefer the sea).

I love being in Italy and I try not to take one moment for granted because I know I will have to return home at the end of August. I never was able to obtain Italian Citizenship and seeing how the Italian companies pay, it just doesnt seem feasible at the moment. :(

This makes me very sad, but I know that I will be able to make the move one day,..

I have a lot of funny stories coming about things that happen in the office here and Yes italians do work ! Contrary to what I believed previously! Maybe there are alot of scioperi, but at the office they work long hours...! I am reading all your blogs ...so thank you for continuing to post!!

I've moved!

Hi Guys! I started a new website which is more tailored to my general interests of travel, Italy, Photography, Style and Cuisine. All related to Bologna, or Italy.

I know I haven't been blogging much...And I really promised myself I would after I got back from Bologna, but I just can't seem to do it! uffa.... I read all of your blogs though! and I live vicariously through all of you in italy!

Updates--well So i'm back from my semester abroad.....looking for my next trip to Italy.. I'm thinking January since I plan on doing a master's program next year in Italy where they offer you a stage so you can go ahead and work with an italian company! I graduate in may so I can work here for a few months before then!

2. I am working on my Italian Citzenship......Uhm ...well you know how that goes a slow and long process even though I have every document but 1 (my great grandfather's birth cert. from italy) I paid a company--My italian Citzenship.com It's about month 3 and still nothing! So i called the COMUNE DI NERETO....... well they just dont work at 12.20 on a friday they are closed for the day much like everyday.

3. I met over 30 italians in philadelphia! So exciting! Really it's changed my life..I feel very much like I live in Italy but in Philadelphia, i've learned so much from all of them ! And I love them dearly!

4. Boy in bologna? I don't even know what to say about this one....I have this confusing friendship/like with this guy in Bologna...we do these "video chats" who knows whats going to happen there... :D
