My time here in Venice is rapidly coming to an end, and what an adventure this has been. It’s was less than a year ago that I moved from California to Boston for school, and now here I am in a completely different country finishing up study abroad just after completing my first year in college. People always comment on how young I am to have made such big changes to my life - probably the result of me not wanting to limit myself when the world is full of so many opportunities. If I’ve learned anything, it’s that you’ve got to actively chase after what you want, even if you don’t think you’re quite ready yet. This last year has been so rewarding, and though I’m sad to leave Italy, I’m eager to come home and see where life takes me next.
