Anger

Lately I’ve been unbelievably angry.

Even the tiniest thing makes me want rip everyone’s head off. My mother was sick for a couple of days and I tried to help her as much as I could. But of course she had to complain about literally everything.

This week I should have gone back to university but I wanted to take another week for myself, relax, get into the mindset of going to Venice almost everyday but people had other plans.

They asked me to do stuff, go outside of the house, go grocery shopping and more. I just wanted to have a nice morning to myself, drown in books and TV shows and not think about the imminent start of the semester.

And yesterday I found out my boss put on the internet a video of me speaking in English and introducing myself. I was literally shaking. Being on camera puts me into a vortex of straight-up misery. It is my actual nightmare and filming it gave me nightmares for days.

Things piled up on top of each other and I will explode in the forseeable future.

I’ll go watch Brooklyn Nine Nine now. It’s the only thing that calms me down.

Things We Should Leave in 2017

I know. The first month of 2018 is gone and nobody wants to go back to the past.

But I’ve just seen these two videos by Connor Franta and Arden Rose and I thought: “I love complaining so this is the perfect blog post for me!”

So here I am! A month late with lots of ranting to do!

Let me start off with the obvious:

The Current US President

Even if he is one of the worst people on Earth, these past two years have been hilarious. People say you should not find all of this funny because this administration is endangering millions and millions of people. And it’s true. I 100% agree. But I can’t help be incredibly entertained by it. Whenever there is news about Russia, collusion and general weird shit that happened, I need to know about it. And not just the general idea. I need to be aware of every single detail.

It’s awful, I know, but if it weren’t reality, it would have been the best tv show ever created.



Too Much Makeup

And here I’m not talking about using makeup to make yourself look similar to a celebrity for Halloween. Those are amazing and the people who do them are unbelievable talented.

I’m talking about excessive contouring, highlighting, long-ass eyelashes that you can see they’re fake for a mile distance and sadly, even more stuff!

I am so tired of looking through YouTube and seeing these people completely altering their appearance and then looking into the camera with a sultry look.

Stop. Please.



sultry looks bring me to my next point:

over sexualization of women and young girls.

Why do women are always expected to be sexy? Why are people are over sexualizing teenagers? (Yes, I’m talking about the Stranger Things cast members. They are children. Stop.)

It’s fucking disgusting.

Talking about something disgusting… sexual predators.

Reading and listening to the stories these women have had to go through made me sick to my stomach. I couldn’t even read the entire articles.

I was so amazed and inspired by all the amazing women who came forward and stood up for themselves. It took and unbelievable amount of courage and I applaud them and stand with them.



Tab├╣ Topics

Let’s be more upfront and voice our issues and our problems. Like menstruation. 49% of the world population is female and we still can’t talk freely about our periods?

And what about our sexuality? In my small and close-minded town, talking about sexuality and the different life styles makes people uncomfortable. Why should it?

You’re straight? Good for you!

You’re gay? Great!

You’re trying to figure it out? You go girl, and explore!

Why is it so hard to understand?!



Most Online Influencers

I admit it. I did follow some of them on Youtube. The big ones like the old-school british ones and a couple of americans but when they reach the point that it is their job, I unsubscribe. (Aside from Hannah and Stefan Michalak. Go check them out. Their videos are absolutely stunning.

I like watching people who create content because they are passionate about it. Not because they are required to.

I don’t care about their fabulous lives and high living standards. I DO NOT CARE. I want to see how other regular people live and what they are passionate about.



Superhero TV shows

I’ve said it before, but I feel like I need to repeat it again. STOP. There are too many white straight costume-clad superhero.

I want more minorities represented in the superhero world, I want more powerful women in fantasy.

Let’s do it, please.

30

One done. One more to go.

I took one of the two exams I’ve been studying for and I got 30.

(FYI, It’s the highest mark. I don’t know how the other universities in the world use as a scale).

It was an oral exam about a 17th century poet, John Donne, and for some reasons Shakespeare’s King Lear.

I was such a nervous rack in the days before the exam! I had gigantic spots on my face and my back, I felt a huge weight on my chest that made breathing normally a little bit difficult.

I haven’t had the best university experience. Due to a variety of personal problems and struggles. I’ve dedicated a large portion of this blog to that and I’ll leave the links at the end of this post if you want to check them out.

But, yeah…. I did it! And I didn’t even cry! NOT FUCKING ONCE!

I wasn’t expecting such a good mark but I’m proud of myself. Yes, I’m saying it. I am proud of what I’ve accomplished.Risultati immagini per lorelai i despise academics gif

But it has put me in a happier and more willing mood to continue my academic career even if, as Lorelai Gilmore eloquently put it, I despise academics.

I hope I’ll keep this up and I won’t fall in the spiral that brought me down last time.

Anyway… I GOT 30!!!!!!!!!!

Since You’ve Been Gone

Well… I’ve been gone for a while. I haven’t posted anything in quite a long time.

I haven’t had the time. Or rather, I’ve had the time but I prefered doing something else.

Anyway, I’m kind of back! Not really since I’ll be super busy till the end of January with my exams.

I’ve been studying. That’s what I’ve been doing.

I haven’t stopped watching TV or wearing makeup. I got my car back from the shop and I’ve got petrol on my own for the first time, I’ve got my first proper pay check (directly to my bank account!!!), I went to university regularly and I’ve been watching Brooklyn Nine Nine every single day.

It’s been good. It’s been better.

I don’t remember if I’ve talked about it but we’ve been organizing the traditional concert for our organization and it’s been hell. The evening itself was great and the performance was spectacular, one of the best they’ve done.

Christmas was good. Better than I expected. This time I didn’t even cry! I wore the great dress my mom gave me as present and my own present for myself was even more amazing than I expected. I got myself a Sephora liquid lipstick and yes, it’s just as magnificent as people say it is.

I’ve been meaning to write a post about my television year but I’ve misplaced the agenda where I keep track of what I watch. I am truly devastated.

I gave SPECTACULAR and PERSONAL Christmas gift to my two friends and my little sister. I don’t mean to brag but they were amazing.

I’m off now. I’m going to star writing a “A Year in Review” post.
