I'm from Virginia in the States, and have just finished a semester studying painting at Florence University of the Arts (spring 2012). I am a double major in Art and Women's Studies back in the States. I love art (obviously), and punk music, and reading. One of my favorite things to do here is just walking around the city of Florence during the day, exploring or checking out the museums. When I'm at home in the States I'm usually working or doing schoolwork, but otherwise I like going to live shows with my friends. I also love cooking, though I'm not very good at it yet, and baking. I speak some Italian, though I'm still learning.
