Rachel Takes Italy

I leave for my study abroad in Italy in one week from tomorrow and I can't wait! I have my suitcased (half) packed and even got the delightful surprise of a handful of Euros for a Christmas present. I've never been abroad and I'm getting a little anxious to leave the country by myself (don't tell my parents). A few of the girls and I will also be traveling to Paris for a four days at the end of the month because I want to live it up, of course. I'm so excited to take on this new adventure and keep my lovely bloggers updated.

Thank you for reading and I will see all of you in a month!

Beyonce's New Album

If you check Twitter multiple times a day, like me, you would have seen that Beyonce released a new album last night! The internet basically exploded. Beyonce's fifth effort features 14 songs and 17 videos. Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean make guest appearances on the album, while the closing track, "Blue," features her daughter Blue Ivy. Yeah, same.

Seriously I was about to go to bed but then I saw on Twitter that Beyonce had released a new album on iTunes so of course I went to listen to it and it was everything I could ever expect.

If you are a Beyonce fan, you should go listen to her new album on iTunes RIGHT NOW!

The Stress of Finals

I usually am able to hold my own with everything school related. But when midterms and finals come around, I'm like any other college student. Downing every coffee I see, I don't even like coffee. Woke up at 4 am last night and couldn't fall back asleep because I was making lists of things I needed to do in my head (I feel like my mother does that?). Woke up early to get a jumpstart on the two huge things I have due tomorow (5 page Spanish paper and oral exam hellooooo!). 

But I had to drop a quick line with all my favorite bloggers! I hope everyone is having a great December and staying warm!

J-Term in Italy

Yeah yeah yeah, I know I only blog about my upcoming J-Term adventures, but I'm just so dang excited! I've gotten to know many of the people going on my program through other friends and so four other girls and I have decided to stay the extra week and explore the country together. Also, one of my best friends from work flys for free because her mom used to be a flight attendent so she is planning on meeting us for that last week!

I seriously haven't done anything like this in my entire life and I can't wait for all the adventures!

Spring Semester Already?

How odd is it that I'm already thinking about what classes I'm taking Spring semester? It's the middle of November and I register for my last semester of college next Tuesday. I don't think I can handle it.

I'm planning on taking three Communication Journalism classes and one Spanish class to finish up my major and minor. And don't forget, I'm taking a Theology class in January in ITALY. I probably can't think of anything better.

My class in Italy is only 3 weeks long so some friends and I are planning on staying the extra week and traveling around either Italy or just Europe. I seriously can't wait. I'm counting down the days, but at the same time I don't want fall semester to end because that means I'm that much closer to becoming a real adult with real responsibilities.

My Weekend in Iowa City

It was another great weekend for the books. I spent it in Iowa City visiting my best friend friend from high school, Jenny. I had never been to a D1 football game and going to one was on my college bucket list. We woke at 6:30 AM to start tailgating. It was way too early but once we got ready and started blasting music, we all got into it! I had never experienced anything like the game and we had a fantastic time! 

After the game we went back and took a nap and then started getting ready to go out for Halloween weekend. I dressed up as Harry Potter and got a lot of great comments on my costume :) The bar scene in Iowa City is really fun; everything is close together and walking distance. Even though the Hawkeyes lost the bar atmosphere was still welcoming and crazy!! 

It was fun to see a bunch of my friends from high school and I loved every second of my weekend. Now it's Thursday and I'm still recovering... however BEST WEEKEND EVER!
