If You Give a Classics Major a Cookie...

...or, in this case, mcredhead  a semester in Rome:

We took the commuter train and metro to the Villa Giulia, a museum with a very nice collection of Etruscan stuff. They had the really famous Etruscan sarcophagus with the couple on top, and the Apollo of Veii, and the Chigi vase! And that's just the really famous stuff, there were heaps and heaps of other stuff, pots and mirrors and jewelry and parts of old temple pediments. I'm so glad I took art history of the ancient world, because I'm actually seeing all this stuff I studied. Basically every time I turn around I find something to geek out about. It's like Just Around the Riverbend in Pocahontas, only way nerdier and in Rome.
