I just spent the afternoon driving through the hills of Tuscany, listening to "My Sharona" on the Christian radio station.

I've just been bonding with other history majors. Yay!

Tomorrow I give a presentation on Socialist Republicanism. ;)

Today, one of the teachers took us to a museum. The three exceptionally useful words she stopped to teach us in Italian, as we walked through town, were "pistol," "rifle," and "scarecrow."
