I have finished the academic year abroad about 10 days ago and have until the end of the month to move out of my apartment... asides from the fact that IAM an art student... i have realized how much of a "pack rat" I am ... maybe it is because I am an ART STUDENT... hmm
I've been waking up at 7 am everyday,and of course by 4 pm I am hallucinating- coffee or nap??-
... but I really enjoy those morning hours-you feel so productive- Not to mention I spend the first 3-4 hours hypnotized by the World Wide Web and between emailing FIT NY, creating the ETSY website, updating my blog and figuring out my Summer/Work PLANS and my post-summer study/living plans... there comes a moment where I panic... I remember the temperature outside is lovely, and I am in Florence and "on vacation". I need to get out! Oh... I need to empty the shelves/throw out magazines, clean the bathroom and the kitchen.. move out... Okay! two more hours of work... so I start classifying, organizing, cleaning...andhah! time to go out...
Its amazing.. the sun, the people... I've had quite the BICYCLE experience... we have a relationship.. two accidents, had one stolen and now I ride one with half empty tires and a NEW bell! but I love it! riding it really stresses me.. and makes me think... hah! the breeze!
Ive just realized... as long as I feel productive-not fooling myself, I meant as long as I AM productive- I think... these days have made me discovered that NYC lifestyle is NOT the only way! I could be hapy working from home... creating... as long as I get to "uscire"/escape/salir/ser libre... for about 2 or 3 hours of my day and feel the LIGHT AND THE HEAT mother earth provides us... I am merry!
who would have known... 10 months ago I felt so lazy... I though ALL people who live here were... just because food time is sacred, home time is sacred... and you are allowed to eat gelato more than once in a lifetime... because you burn the "fat/i would say SUGAR"walking and bicycling...
I return home.. at the border of a proudly owned -heat- headache... to an evermore empty room.. I am moving once more- CITYSCAPE here I come... I hope you don't reject me... but if you do... it doesn't matter... I am ready... I am becoming more "hybrid"/mobile"
