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 [...]

2017 Reading Wrap-up and 2018 Reading Goals

Sooooo... it's 2018! Personally, I don't care whether it's 2017 or 2018. It's still the same. No difference whatsoever. The only exception is that my goodreads reading challenge has started again. I'm here to do my reading wrap-up for 2017 and share some of the reading goals I want to achieve this year. At the [...]

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 [...]

November TBR 2017

I don't know why I am doing this because I know I won't be able to stick to it, but here I am again with another TBR. I have been reading Stephen King's "It" for the past weeks and I'm still only half-way throught it. It's soooooo long and scary and disgusting AND so creepy. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

September Goals 2017

I saw this wonderful post by Victoria (Doodles and Scraps) about her August Wrap-up and the goals she has set for the months of September. So I decided to use this as inspiration for my post. It's the 1st of September as I am writing this. I've spent the morning watching "Harry Potter and the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

May Favourites (and not) 2017

Let's start on a positive note. This month has been hell. I hated it. I have basically posted no content here on my blog, I haven't been reading, I haven't been putting my makeup on and I haven't seen that many tv shows... No, ok, that was an alternative fact. I loved A LOT of [...]

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 [...]
