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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

August Favourites 2017

It's been a busy month. I've been studying a lot and haven't had time to actually HAVE favourite things. But there a few item that stood out. Actually more than I expected. 😉🤘🏼TV showsI've watched this show almost in one sitting. "Friends from College" is about a group of 40-year-old who have been friends since [...]

Judgy people, shopping and rare positivity – Going Shopping part 2

Attention! This post contains swearing and an awful amount of sarcasm! I haven't had the best weekend. I know it's not even over and it's already shit. In Friday I went shopping at our usual retail shopping centre and... boy, it was delightful. 🙄 I already talked about going shopping with my family and you [...]

July Favourites 2017

It's already the middle August and I'm here writing about my July favourites. Great timing.Staring with the not-so-great news, I began studying again. I have to take again my exams because I have failed them, so yay. You can almost hear through these words how happy I am. 🙄😒But July has been quite a good [...]

It’s back

I am terrified that my "dark times" are coming back. I've been studying to take my exams again and although it is going okay, I have this horrible feeling that what happened last year is going to represent itself on September. I was weak, I cried for everything and going out felt like someone was [...]

My Music – June / July 2017 

I've been really into music these past months. Spotify has been my saviour whilst my relatives talk for HOURS about shit I don't care about. Yes, I'm depicting the typical "teen angst" but hear me out: the same two topics over and over again. For 24 hours a day. Your ears would be bleeding too. [...]

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 [...]

We’re done

Attention!!! This post contains some strong language and swear words! I hadn't cried in quite a long time. At least for my standards. But I've never cried out of anger. Repressed anger. And possibly something help. I've been feeling terrible these couple of days, really really down. And it hasn't happened in at less a [...]

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 [...]

Letting It All Out

Today I sat in mt bathroom floor and cried for 20 minutes. It hadn't happened in a couple of months and in the last couple of days. I was truly feeling better. I wanted to study, to do things and get my driving licence. But apparently something inside of me said "No!" and I found [...]

Broadchurch Season 3 Premiere

BREAKING NEWS! DAVID TENNANT IS BACK ON TV! I can't believe this day is actually here! I couldn't wait any longer! David Tennant has a special place in my heart and seeing him back on TV made my day. I know, I'm a week late with this post: I couldn't come to terms with the [...]

Going Shopping

Every 6 months my family and I go a shopping centre an hour away from our town. There you can buy designer clothes for really cheap prices. It's that occasion where you can splurge on expensive things without going bankrupt. I was excited, really excited. There are 2 makeup store and I can't even begin [...]

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, [...]

“Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah

I finished reading this book a couple of minutes ago and as soon as I turned over the past page (and I finished crying) I started typing this review. As I wrote on my Goodreads page: ONE OF THE BEST BOOK I HAVE READ. EVER. I've discovered Trevor Noah as a talk show host a [...]
