Things are moving along nicely here, and there's less than two weeks left in the course. The last few days are going to be particularly brutal, since that's when the bulk of all the tests are administered. Our class has really pulled together, though, and we're genuinely looking out for each other, making sure everyone understands the material and no one gets left behind. I'm lucky to be in a class of people who take this stuff seriously, but not TOO seriously.
Regardless, when all this is over, I'll definitely be ready to get back to Italy. I miss the weather, the food, the wine, and just the general temperament of that country. And the feeling when I finally slide back into my own bed will be heavenly.
