Here’s my story. I graduated from Curry College with a Bachelors of Arts in Studio Arts on May 20, 2018. Graduating from college will feel so unreal, until the very next day. And it will hit you like a … Continue reading HOW IT FEELS TO BE A POST-COLLEGE GRADUATE
Have you ever traveled to a different country or even a state, and their norms don’t seem at all “normal” to you? When I first arrived in Italy, there were so many different things happening left and right that was normal to them, but it was overwhelming for me. You mean the vehicles won’t even slow down for you? Eat a panini every day for breakfast. Italy doesn’t have normal breakfasts here like in America. It is definitely far from eating at IHOP. Most Italians will buy some type of drink and a pastry, and that’s it. Good luck waiting … Continue reading Things I Wouldn’t do in America
Something I’ve experienced my whole life. There were points in my life where I had a decent number of friends, and for some reason, the number of friends I had was important growing up, 95% of the time I wasn’t invited … Continue reading What it Feels Like to be the Girl Who Doesn’t Get Invited to Places
Hello! Long time no talk. Midterms and field trips…and more field trips are coming up! This week I’ll be going to the Ferragamo Museum with my Fashion Marketing and Retail class, and this weekend I’ll be heading to Siena for … Continue reading Everyone Should Have This Photography App On Their Phone
I am really emphasizing on the word “lazy,” because that’s what I am today. I woke up after 9 am, and of course, I stayed in bed. I did the usual non-productive routine of listen to Spotify, and go on social media. I haven’t really been picking up the Italian language as much as I had hoped for. Not saying it isn’t the only hard one to learn, but it’s definitely one of them. I decided to look up on google, “learn Italian.” I am currently creating a huge Quizlet set with all the basics to help me more with the … Continue reading LAZY Sunday
Resolutions are weird, right? Resolutions have people going to the gym or eating healthy for a week, or doing something else that sounds wack. My perspective of it is that people create resolutions of goals that they want to achieve at some point in their life, but they don’t make it realistic enough, and they don’t break their resolutions down. Going to the gym? Great. How many times a week? What are you specifically working on? Eating healthy? Good for you. Are there certain foods you’re cutting out, and some you’re not? Make a list, and put it somewhere on a … Continue reading 2017 Resolutions
It’s 2:58 pm as I am writing this, and I am a mix between lazy and just slightly productive. It’s just one of those rainy days. Do I lay in bed, watch YouTube videos, nap, and research traveling? Or do I finish cleaning out my room, finish putting away the tree ornaments (so sad), and polish my boots? Eh, I’ll figure that out, and maybe complete those at like 8 pm. Rainy Days are confusing. I feel like the Universe is testing me on productiveness. Let’s look at what I did today: got out bed (big starter), read my Bible … Continue reading Rainy Tuesday
Hello! Welcome to my blog, Jordan Du Jour! Here I will write posts about my travels through London, Rome, Florence (where my program is), Siena, Venice, and who knows where else! I cannot wait to use my YouTube channel (JEBeauty) as another platform to show the world my personal perspective of Europe, and use the coolest camera to film – a GoPro. Along with using the GoPro, I take my pictures and film my YouTube videos with a Sony Alpha a58 DSLR camera. The camera takes beautiful pictures and videos and wanting to become a free-lance photographer, I cannot wait to play … Continue reading Welcome to my blog // Happy 2017!
