Just An Update

Hi! I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t quite set aside the time to sort out my favourite photos from my Venice trip this past weekend. I’ve been getting over feeling sick the past three days. Also I’m getting the hang of my classes finally, which is great!

I got home today after our Italian Life and Culture (ILC) class lecture on Italian Politics, and switched on our television — a nature show on some sort of river seals was on (in Italian). It was so exciting! I used to watch a lot of animal shows as a kid.

I walked about — next week I’ll have my cooking class, which has been arranged to be gluten-free! Yay! We’ll be making:

  • “Ravioli di spinaci e ricotta” (Spinach and ricotta cheese ravioli)
  • “Sformato di verdure” (I have no idea what this is)
  • Panna cotta! My favorite dessert!

Anyway, I spent the evening drawing in my sketchbook and listening to a calming audiobook on my iPod.

Bonus points to whoever recognises this image from one of my earlier posts! Diario Visivo di Fiona = my rough translation of “Fiona’s Visual Journal.” I don’t usually like to share any of my art online, but whatever. I draw for pleasure occasionally nowadays. I should probably practice more, but it’s much more exciting to see Florence!
