New shoes and finals galore

It was like I had gotten to my 200th post and so I never needed to write again! :)

This is not the case. The truth is, it is finals week, and while I have only one final, I also have two final papers. I've been working a lot on these. The bulk will be done tomorrow (one paper due and one final takes place), and the final paper is due on Friday.

I did something out of character this weekend. I spent a lot of money on shoes. Usually I try to buy cheap shoes. However, since I am heading to Italy here in one week, I decided I should probably grab some new shoes so my feet don't hurt as much as they did when I was in London in March. I also wanted some brown shoes to hide my American-ness a little more. (Because the clothes, the blondish hair, the accent, and the fat won't give me away!) ;) Women's comfortable brown shoes are not easy to find.

I wound up at Dick's and bought a pair of Merrell's. These, in fact. I've been breaking them in all weekend. They're pretty nice! Hopefully they work for the cobblestone adventure we have ahead of us.

cute shoes!
and, Italy??? SO jealous! I think it's at the top of my list of places to go once I have some money (so, about 2030, lol). I never made it there while I was studying abroad.
good luck with your finals!
