I am back!!! Whoop whoop!

I am back home, finally!!! It so great to finally be able to sleep in my comfortable bed and not having to share bathroom with people, haha! 😛
I’ve missed you all, even if I still got the chance to comment (Internet happened to be available actually!) now and then on your lovely blogs. Despite the fact that I needed a break from blogging, I have to admit I missed writing on this sweet corner of the web! 😉
As you know, I’ve been MIA because of the TOEFL program I attended in the month of July.
I got back home last night after four long, challenging and basically life-changing weeks. I can’t believe July is actually over and that, now, future starts getting real and closer. I am going to have a super busy Fall because of PhD applications and exams and..it feels really weird being this close to my dream. Let’s keep fingers crossed!!!
The English programme went extremely good. I got the chance of improving my reading and writing abilities (hopefully my written English will be better from today on – can’t promise anything, though :P) and, most of all, I managed to speak a lot of English with actual American gals and -not to brag- I think my pronunciation really is better than before. Everything thanks to my awesome English teacher Dean and the 25 Detroit college students who lived by my side for 30 days. I learned so much from their culture and I was pleasantly surprised how nice everyone was. That’s surely the thing that impressed me the most. I will forever have a place for all of them in my heart! It really was an enriching experience from every points of view!
I’ll try not to get emotional, but I definitely have to admit that saying goodbye to everybody, yesterday night, was one of the most bittersweet feeling ever. So sad to see them leave Italy. I regret not having spent enough time with them. I wish we had some more weeks to keep knowing each other, but..well, what can we do?! Thank God for Skype and Facebook!
If you Detroit kids are reading this, I hug you super tight and I miss you all already! Good luck with your dreams! ❤
I had some time to write my thesis, but not as much as I wanted. I guess August will be the month of catching up with my schedule, but, most of all, I should start planning the exams I have to take this Fall and list the universities to apply to. So much to do! I am feeling super excited that my dream is so near that I can almost grab it, but so scared about the amount of stuff I have to do in the next months!!! *sigh*
I should be back on schedule with blog posts starting next week, hopefully. I have so much stuff to review that my “blog” folder is going to explode! 😛
& that’s the end of the post. I just wanted to update you all on my “life” and let you know that I am alive!!! 😀 Now, while listening to Spice Girls (don’t ask :P), I really should go and unpack my stuff and clean this mess around me!
Talk to you all very soon!
