I saw this shirt this past summer and I got it because I like the play on the word ‘grateful’. It’s December now and when I look back on how much of a ride it has been since summer, I can’t help but express gratitude. I started writing this post months ago, reminding myself of things I’m grateful for on separate occasions, and taking notes. Although, there are more than twenty things to be grateful for, I share the twenty reasons that came to mind. Life is not always rosy, but gratitude helps you believe as I have learnt. I hope you are encouraged by this and remember to be ‘Grapeful’ today. Continue reading “Birthday Post: 20 things I’m ‘Grapeful’ For”→
I’m currently typing this while in class. I know, I’m a horrible student but if I don’t type this up now, I don’t know when I’ll have the time to. School is almost over as we have only three weeks left, so work is piling up as final projects and exams are due. Amidst all these, I remember that I have been here for three months and a week now. My study abroad experience will be over in less than a month and I’m crying. It is crazy to me how quickly time flies by, like how did 3 months fly past?

Thank you so much for keeping up with me. I hope you are enjoying these almost weekly updates of my study abroad experience. Let me know by leaving a comment below after reading. Love you and let’s get into it.
Slight Backtrack: After my weekend trip to Barcelona, I had Midterm break and did a tour of Northern Italy that week. I was in a different city every day including, Verona, Milan, Venice, Lake Garda, and Florence. I was going to write a blog post on this week but it is too much to write about. If you are interested in what I was up to, check out my story highlights on Instagram. You’ll see posts of each city I visited. The most important thing you need to know about the week was that I had an awesome time exploring Northern Italy. Each city is unique in its own right, it almost felt like I was in a different country everyday. Continue reading “Lola’s Adventures: School trip to Lisbon, Portugal”→
I’m sorry this post is coming three weeks late, I can be such a lazy hot mess but we thank God, it is now here hahaa. The events in this post occurred during the weekend of October 13th, 2018. Thou shall not judge me for uploading it now.
I hope the title of this post doesn’t scare you, I’m just trying to be honest in sharing everything I’m experiencing during my time in Italy. Remember when I said I hadn’t experienced anything ugly in this post, well, that has changed now, hence the reason for this post.
My previous post ended with me telling you about my fun weekend in Salerno/Almafi Coast. As promised, this post is a continuation of my weekly posts. After the weekend, it was back to school for me, which meant nothing that exciting happened, except the Wine tasting class organized by my school on Wednesday night. The class taught us basic etiquette for tasting and identifying different types of wine. Can you guess what the best part of the class was? Drinking the wine of course.

If you haven’t heard, your girl is studying abroad this Fall in Rome, Italy! That’s right, I’m escaping Philly for a few months to live in the Eternal city. I can’t believe it has been a month since I arrived here. I am grateful for this experience and to my school, Temple University for providing students with this opportunity. My plan is to summarize my weekly Study Abroad experiences on the blog. However, I was lazy and failed to document my first month, so you’ll be getting a detailed summary of my past month in this post, and weekly posts after. I hope this post won’t be too long, I’m just trying to carry you along as much as possible, I hope you enjoy reading it. I’ll be sharing the good and bad, no ugly yet.
