Lauren: Week 5July 25, 2011
Tuesday, July 19th -
We returned from a trip to Paris the night before around midnight. I had two papers to finish writing, one for my Media Class, and the other for my Art History final. I finalized both Tuesday morning, and it was a relief to be done with the both of them (especially Art History). For my media class, we had a guest speaker. He was a very intelligent man, but not entirely good at public speaking. It further confirmed how important it is to be able to communicate with others.
In Art History, we received our final exam grades (I got a B+). Soooo happy to almost be done with this class. My teacher, Pia, is absolutely terrible. That night, we went out to celebrate finishing our research papers. It was Scholar’s again for Karaoke, which was great, as always.

I spent the day out and about in Rome with friends. We went shopping on Del Corso and I picked up a few gifts for my loved ones back home!
That night, we tried out a new place called “DJ Bar”, which was great! We had a ton of fun dancing the night away…and it really hit me how much I’m going to miss all my new friends!! Especially the ones from Michigan State, who I won’t have the ability to see for quite some time!

We went to Vatican Radio Station to have a personal interview with our professor, Sean Patrick. It was weird being in a recording studio and being asked questions based on my resume, but it was also a very eye-opening experience! This has been one of the best classes I have ever taken.
The rest of the day was dedicated to packing for the weekend, which consisted trips to Milan, Verona, and Venice! Stay tuned for more on that trip
