This is it. The last day of being in Memphis... as if this couldn't come fast enough. During the last 24-hours, I have had the pleasure of meeting my roommates. They are both from America, and they attend school in California at Whittier College. They both seem really cool and funny... and although I dont know them well, I know for a fact they want to travel as much as possible. That sounds like the basis of a solid friendship to me.
My other roommate is from Wabash, Brad Jones. He's a Delt, and although we have never had a class together, we get along great. We have similar types of humor and like to do the same stuff (traveling, relaxing, etc.) In other words, I think my apartment this semester is going to be pretty much baller.
Now on to today's topic- "Vendemmia." During the first week, Umbra University has all these activities planned for us. The most important is the "intensive Italian language" class... which is mandatory I might add. But looking through the schedule, the highlight of my week is Vendemmia, which is grape-harvesting for wine making. Just thinking about it sounds fun. I dont have a clue how to make wine, but how cool would it be if I made a batch of my own wine and brought it back to America... probably not, but its cool to dream.
