My favourite P words: Pizza, Pasta, Prosecco, Prociutto, Pecorino, Pellegrino, Peroni..

Buona Sera…it’s Saturday evening, my mini heater is amazing and so so glad that I have it now!   I have just completed approximately 4 hours of studying (not including the hour or two I spent trying to understand the use of a particular Congiuntivo…). I am trying to out-wit myself by way of bribing. It’s all about timing as well. Here’s how today went…

After picking up my clean laundry and dumping it on my bed, I took myself out for lunch.  I chose… pizza and a glass of wine…and a bottle of water just to balance everything out. I ended my feast with a cafe macchiato…I wanted to go back for the Aperitif hour but once I got into the studying I realized if I went out that I would not get anything done and that would later torment me. So I stayed in and I didn’t mind so much. I am trying to find new ways to trick myself…Its not that I don’t do the work its that I have to spend hours to review and study to keep up which cuts into my “inspiration” time…I have a couple of ideas lined up for tomorrow’s bribe reward… but it will depend on what I can accomplish study wise…

Today was a super gorgeous sunny day in Rome. When I am out and about in the neighbourhood, I am always greeted by someone, “Buongiorno Bella Signora!” …On my way to get groceries, I walked by Bar Del Fico … it does not matter how cold it is, you will always find people dining outside and…today the men were playing chess…I have gotten familiar with the faces of the people that work in the grocery store as well. They are always friendly, in fact,  the man from behind the specialty cheese and prociutto counter always manages to  find me in the store…

Well its time for the land of nod… it will be an early to rise morning for me… I am still praying that by 2 months time I will have transitioned into that phase … there is a special phase they say where it all just clicks …waiting to be that Italian speaking goddess…
