Podcasts: What I’ve Been Listening To

I can't believe that now I'm that person who is always talking about the podcasts they are listening to. And yet... here we are! I started getting into podcasts thanks to the guys at "Pod Save America" and I love them! I usully listen to them in the car: I can't connect my phone to [...]

Mid-Year Update! A Look Back into the Past 6 Months!

We are already halfway through 2018! Only 6 more months and it's 2019! BROOKLYN 99 COMES BACK!!! No, of course I don't measure time based on my favourite tv show... EXCEPT THAT I DO!!! This year has been good for me. Television wise. I've fallen back in love with some shows, I've hated some, I [...]

One Of The Worst Parties I’ve Ever Been To

So... A couple of weeks ago I talked about this party that I was supposed to go to in my "What's Been Going on" post and it happened two Saturdays ago. I was not happy. Not at all. I didn't have a totally terrible time but I had to restrain myself from standing up and [...]

2-Year Anniversary!

It's my 2-year anniversary here on WordPress!!! Yaaay!! I can't believe it's been 24 months since I started writing my blog. It still feels like yesterday I uploaded my first post! I've had a tremendous time, connecting with amazing people and writing about the things I love. Thank you to those who have read my [...]

Former “Suits” Actress Marries British Ex-Soldier

So.... in case you've been living under a rock or you've just woken up from a coma, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married today. I watched the whole thing. I am a royalist. I love William and Kate. I love reading about the family and even though there are sooooooo many skeletons in their [...]

Hollywood Phonies’ Awards And Racist Homophobes in Chief

4:56 PM I'm joking, of course. I've been obsessed with The Lonely Island in these past couple of days and "Threw It On the Ground" is hilarious. So that's where "Hollywood Phonies" comes from. The other part of the title refers to the fucking morons we might elect tonight. I'm writing this part at 5PM [...]

The Least Worst of Them All – Italian Politics

I'm so tired. This electoral campaign is killing me. Here in Italy there is such a toxic and poisonous environment: these elections are fucking disgusting. Long story short: all the candidates are terrible. Fascists, fascists, more fascists, idiots, ignorant idiots, annoying people and a disgraced former prime minister with tax evasion convictions, accusations of having [...]

Sometimes Change Isn’t For The Better

I got a haircut today. And it didn't go as planned. I wanted it shortened and with long bangs so that there is a little movement and volume. Instead the hairdresser cut them too short and now it looks like I had a fringe and I'm trying to grow them out. It's not terrible... I [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Am I Scrooge?

This year I haven't been feeling the whole Christmas vibe. At all. I'm feeling so unimpressed by all these decorations and trees and holly people. Ew. Everything is Christmas related and people have started feeling "christmas-y" since November 1st. No. No. N. Also, if I hear one more person saying the word "festive" or "christmas-y", [...]

I jinxed it.

This has been a difficult month. Truly difficult. In my last life update, I was positive. Optimistic. Well, it all went down the toilette on November 1st. The irony. A little bit of background story.... In Italy, November 1st is a national holiday. It's the day when, if you're christian, you celebrate the gestures and [...]

Life Update: September/October 2017

I've been pretty absent from the wordpress world lately. Life got busy and this takes so much time!!! I have a lot of posts I have started writing and never finished, but this morning I took the pictures for my Summer/Autumn haul (yes, I am very behind) and for the post I've been cooking for [...]

FINALLY!!!

I have written a couple of posts regarding my driver's license (Getting My Driver's Licence and May Favourites (and not) 2017) and my frustration with the driving lessons. On October 12th, I had my exam. The actual practical test in which I had to drive around the city with my instructor and the examiner. I [...]

I did it!

I passed my english exam. I've literally just found out! I ran to my mom sobbing and mumbling: "I passed the exam! I got a 28/30!" After that, I stood there for 10 minutes sheding litres and litres of tears. My mom and I talked some more, about my uni life and the choices I [...]

Hugging

Today my mom hugged me. And not in a congratulatory "Happy Birthday" or "Happy New Year" way. We hadn't hugged like that since that morning in high school, when I basically had a breakdown in the bathroom. This time, we stumbled upon each other in the kitchen and she hugged me. So of course, I've [...]

Tears Streaming Down Your Face

It's definitely back. My issues are back in full swing. I haven't had such bad days in a long time. And the rage. I am angry. All the time. The following may or may not be a few of the reasons. Uni has started and I haven't had the courage to attend any class. Next [...]

Trouble at Uni, exams and breakdowns

I don't even know where to start. Basically I've been studying for a months and a half for absolutely NOTHING. A couple of weeks ago, I logged into my uni account to book my english exam. And I made a surprising discovery. Back in June I wrote this post about the fact that I didn't [...]
