My last week in Milan (July 2014) was a relief: my masters program was over!!! A year of work, stress, prayer, fun, food, 13 extra pounds (5.8kg), adventures, sleep, love, church, fun, friendship, shopping, laughing, coffee, gelato, stress, boredom, fun, etc was all over! (yup another masters, u'd think i love school, I always identified with Lynn from Girlfriends, minus her R rated parts).
I threw a Hawaiian Themed Luau in my apartment OCT 11 last year with my friend Veronica for all our friends. it was a blast! we decorated! gave out Hawaiian lei's (garland flowers), loads of drinks, and pizza. It was fun. when everyone left/ we got tired of threats for our music we both drank and danced around my awesome apartment.
I LOVED my apartment!! it was super cool. elevator going into the apartment, 2 bedroom, green garden outside, concierge, balcony, pretty sweet, fun safe neighborhood, food shops for days (I'll definitely miss it). (to those who know Milan i lived between Crocetta and Porta Romana. 2 stops from Duomo.
OK enough reminiscing... let's fast forward to my last week in Milan.(technically it was 2 weeks before i left, same thing let's move on) When everything was over, Nostalgia, hope, tiredness, so many feelings, EXAMS OVER amen i passed. I was ready for a holiday.
My amazing friend A. came in from Geneva to visit, and we decided to surprise our friend Obi on his birthday. It was so cool seeing him shocked, i got to meet Vanessa at the birthday party, who i love so much, wish we met earlier during my 1 year there..
This was a fun night, and i decided to record it, so you could experience it with me.
