    Here we are at the end of the road. All at once it feels like I’ve been here forever and for no time at all. Becca asked us what we were going to miss and then urged us to remember the sensations that we associate with the Accademia. So, I thought I might share some of my favorite sensations from here at the Accademia for those that will be coming here next to look forward to:

    1. the smell of fresh espresso in the morning
    2. feeling the cold tile under my feet
    3. the sound of someone opening their window
    4. looking over at the duomo on a foggy day
    5. the feeling of new sheets on linen exchange day
    6. the satisfying feeling of opening up the door to the limonaia on the first try
    7. searching around in the fruit bin for the perfect orange
    8. the sound of others at work
    9. the wind during windstorms
    10. hearing the birds sing during a moment of silence in class

    thank you ADA for some of the best moments in my life and for some of the best friends I could ask for.

    Goodbye, Arezzo

    I know I’ll take you with



    bye sunrise sunset yellow peeling walls orchestra of alarm


    never just one smell


    hanging up laundry steep climbs and large


    vineyards and olives

    Silly Thursday nights in the studio

    Will soon turn into early mornings in the studio


    Will soon turn into hellos


    Stimulating conversations at midnight

    Will soon turn into videochatting in free time

    Rolling hills and tall thin trees

    Will soon turn into lawns and suburban hedges


    Dirt roads leading to the vineyards

    Will soon turn into paved sidewalks that lead to homes

    Yellow walls that stain your clothes

    Will soon turn into light blue walls with old posters of boy bands


    Seeing the people you have grown so fond of

    Will soon turn into seeing things that remind you of them

    The home we have found and have come to love

    Will soon turn into Home


    But this also means

    Calling loved ones at odd hours

    Will soon turn into hugging loved ones tight

    Tomatoes and fresh cheese and pasta and gelato

    Will soon turn into peanut butter and jelly and chinese food and ben and jerry’s


    Videochatting your best friends

    Will soon turn into stimulating conversations at midnight


    Will soon turn into home
