Well, well, well.. It has been quite some time! **NOTE*** I have purchased this blog URL so for those of you who may have the Semester in Parisdise saved you may need to update to the new one I bought, (this one).


These past few months, who am I kidding, these past few years have been quite busy as I neared the end of my Business Management degree. Friends, it’s official, I am a 2015 graduate wahoo!!! These past few weeks have been intense. I made preparations for a wonderful graduation party on the day of graduation and ended up surrounded by all of my family, friends and loved ones. It has been a long 6 years of schooling for me and I am beyond happy to be DONE!! Thank you to everyone who came and made graduation so special, thank you for all of the support! I am a little behind on the graduation “Thank You’s” but I promise I will have those out within the next week. For those of you who may not be connected with me on Facebook here are some pictures from my special day!

The party doesn’t stop there. I was able to walk in May with the notion I still had 2 summer classes to finish up SO in other words I have been in school since graduation day :/. I finished a 2 week class at the end of May and began my capstone class, Strategic Management the beginning of June. Good news, I am halfway done with that class. Bad news, it’s a level 600 class combined in 4 weeks so I’ve been lacking sleep, energy, quiet time and all of the above the past few weeks. BUT for those of you who may not know, I am heading off to Italy for the summer in 2 short weeks!! HAPPY GRADUATION TO ME! I am going to live in the beautiful port/sea side town of Genoa for 6 weeks as an au pair (nanny). After about 6 weeks of au pairing I will then backpack Europe for 2 weeks! I just purchased my Eurail train ticket, special thanks to Rick Steves, and am beyond excited for my next adventure.

Check back for more! I will be updating again soon,
