Why Derry Girls Makes you Laugh like Crazy and Cry like a Baby

I am in love with this show. Utterly in love. It's so funny, weird and over the top. Derry Girls is about a group of girls (and James) from Northern Ireland in the early 1990s and their school and relationship problems. It is so funny. I got an email notification from Netflix when it came [...]

What I’ve Read This Summer

I haven't written anything even remotely related to books in a loooong time. And that is because I haven't been reading. I talked about it how my anxiety stopped me from enjoying reading, but I was on holiday for two weeks and I was so completely relaxed that I could finally get into some books. [...]

Guess What I’m Watching This Summer! – Part 2

I'm back for part two!!! Before reading this post, go have a look at part 1. You'll never guess what shows I picked! Also, DISCLAIMER! I don't know how many parts there will be. I'm still adding shows to the list! And as soon as the Emmy nominations are announced, it will probably get even [...]

Holiday Wrap-Up – Summer 2018

So... I came back from my holiday! More than a month ago. Don't get on my back, I'm all over the place. If you look back at my posts, the timeline is way off. I made huge miscalculations and posted stuff before other stuff (like my Riverdale review) but it doesn't matter! I'm here to [...]

Fleabag Season 1 Review

“Fleabag” has been in my watchlist for a very long time and somehow I never picked it up! I don’t know why but I had always postponed watching it. It looked like a heavy themed show and I was not in the mood for that. But I’m so glad that I finally did! It is [...]

Mozart in the Jungle got Cancelled

I have literally just found out that Amazon decided to end “Mozart in the jungle“. This is a disgrace. I’ve been following the show since season two and it’s brilliant. I have talked about the show on my blog (1st impression and season 4) and I was really hoping and waiting for a new season! [...]

“Concentrate on the music. Ignore the noise.”, Mozart In The Jungle – Season 4 Review

Hai Lai and Rodrigo are back!!! I've been following "Mozart in the Jungle" for quite a while and I've been waiting more than a year for this next season. Starring Lola Kirke, Gael Garcia Bernal and created by Alex Timbers, Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman, the show revolves around a New York based Orchestra and [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

TEACHING – Three Months as a Teacher

This time I want to talk about my job. I can't believe being a teacher is my actual job this year. I am currently teaching 3 classes at private studio in my town and I'm loving it. It's so hard and given my non-existent experience, I was petrified at the beginning. And even now, after [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Failure

I was hoping to pass at least one exam but I didn't. I did two and I didn't pass either of them. Frankly I don't know what to do. I thought I was strong enough but apparently this has set me back. I don't deal well with failure. It is something that detroys me from [...]

Missing two trains, Univeristy stuff and headaches

On Wednesday, I had the worst day. It was really bad. Weirdly enough, mentally, I was almost ok. But let's start from the beginning: I emailed a few of my university professor in order to get the materials to study for my exams and so I had to go to Uni and actually talk to [...]

Taking a Break

I briefly mentioned my "feeling down period" in a previous post about Friends, but I never actually explained anything. I don't feel ready to share everything right now... I kind of think that if I actually talk about it, I would FEEL it and BAM! I'll be a mess again. Because for the past month, [...]

First Year At Uni

I have only written reviews so far and entering the "personal" sphere scares the shit out of me. In a week, my Uni courses start again. I'm still confused about how I feel about it. I am a student at Ca' Foscari University in Venice. I'm studying "Lingua, Civiltà e scienze del Linguaggio" which is [...]
