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 [...]

“Oh, Hello! On Broadway” review

I've been meaning to watch this play for at least 7 months and a couple days ago I finally did it! Ever since I saw John Mulaney's stand up special on Netflix, I've been keeping an eye on his on-going projects. So when they announced on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show that their play was going [...]

How is this still a thing?

Disclaimer! This post contains strong language and spoilers for Brooklyn Nine Nine's fifth season. Let's start 2018 with a post about feminism because... why not?

Open Letter to America

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", [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
