I was so excited to get to Milan! I got off the airplane and there were so many other people waiting to be picked up by the housing service to be taken to our individual apartments. I met a lot of other girls from SUNY Albany! It was cool that even across the world, I still had some fellow SUNY sisters. We were divided up into cars, and taken to our apartments. I was supposed to be the first drop off, however, they had the wrong keys for me. I did panic internally a little, especially because I was the first person to arrive to my apartment, but I was calm knowing my housing service didn’t leave me alone. Everyone else was dropped off, and then I finally got in my home. Later that day though, my roommate Ashley from Buffalo State came home, so I was no longer alone. We napped, thus messing up our sleep schedule, but eventually we got the hang of the new time difference.
Right away the next day we had to go to school for Orientation. I had no idea how fast paced everything was, and how much we had to get done within our first week in Milan. We got the hang of the metro very quickly considering how we constantly had to run obscure errands all over Milano. We met so many people, in such a short amount of time!
The first week was jampacked, and our first weekend was that way as well. But I was so happy to finally be home =)
