Road trip to Kitzbühel

This year I had the most perfect ski holiday in Kitzbühel with my English family, which I have no words to thank enough. We are all in one piece (unlike my daddy who broke his femur at the beginning of the year skiing) and the ski holiday came back to be my favourite from a…

Elogy to cigarettes – against their ostracism 

I write this post for a friend living in London who, against his wife and much of the population, defends his right to smoke and found in me an ally. When I met them she was explaining, with my mum nodding at her affirmations, how not cool has became smoking now; in London is forbidden…

Il risveglio

Risvegliarsi diversi: quante volte capita? Ci possiamo svegliare con una luce nuova, come fiori sbocciati sotto i raggi di un sole che si chiama una notte infuocata con la persona che ti rendi conto di amare, dopo una prima volta che sblocca le nostre paure, in seguito ad un risultato ottenuto che ci ha condotti…

Belated wishes and Christmas thoughts

Здравствуйте, and greetings! Last Christmas was one of the best in my life, I gave my heart literally and the very next day I was the happiest girl. I am still safe and sound, thanks to the Almighty. The best gift was understanding how love must be stronger than pride to fulfill one self with the true…

Please call me Dottoressa

I got my title! Here’s some pictures of yesterday, when I finally discussed my thesis and shared my points of view with the commission. Now that it’s done I can finally say how stupid is worrying about a thesis… Because it is YOUR production, and you know more than anyone else about it. So even…

Laurea&Pensieri

Tanti auguri a questo blog! All’incirca un anno fa ho iniziato a scriverci, e adesso mi laureo… Infatti non è che me ne scordo, è che sto incastrando e organizzando dettagliatamente la prossima settimana al fine di celebrare al meglio tutto. Una settimana e non un giorno, ovviamente; vale per compleanni e non compleanni, figuriamoci…

Back on the tennis court – from competition to pleasure

15 settembre, giorno di compleanno di mia madre, e giorno in cui mi sono decisa a farmi invitare a giocare a tennis dopo almeno 5 anni di pausa. Insieme alla danza ma sempre a livelli più intensi di questa, ho praticato questo sport durante tutta l’infanzia e l’adolescenza. Giocavo tutti i giorni dopo pranzo per…

The spoiled picky geek

I did it! After an incredibly intense exhausting summer – for my standards, that is relaxing and regenerating -, I came back to my native country with a clear and determined mind. I’m always happy in September, the seasons in which true sensed warmth are starting from now! It’s time to make a treasure from the…

Le pari de l’été

Blaise Pascal, mathematician and philosopher, suggested to bet on the existence of God because the possibility of an eternal life in heaven would have been a much bigger gain than the simple loss of time worshipping something that doesn’t exist over lifetime. My bet was similar: the maximum on the Goddess within me – it’s…

Symptoms of drunkness – a formulary

Будь осторожен! I don’t do drugs (I am ;)) , but let’s not forget the dangers of alcohol. Arrived at a certain level you should be conscious to stop – there’s nothing worst and less sexy than a drunk girl! 1. You lough too much; 2. You love everybody; 3. You call your ex; 4….

Post Dysfunctional Scriptum

Will I ever be back? Of course, for the thesis… But then? I got an abnormal disease – common to locals here though; I feel anxious (more than usual) and mad when I get out of those 2km2 place, a part from my beach that is anyway an annex and my house, that means Cap…

Welcome to the life of the Rich and Dysfunctional

I didn’t want to write on this ambitious, senseless/meaningful corner until I was back to the peninsula Italiana as I was pretty busy writing the much more meaningful and revolutionary thesis – did you know that Nietzsche wrote his “So spoke Zarathustra” in Eze? – and much also starting a personal TOP SECRET romance while…

Blondewithbrain chooses her French heaven

I moved to French Riviera for the whole summer season after having stressed my family to let me go alone there… I decided to cut the bonds with Livorno and Florence for a while – the time to get inspired for my thesis while enjoying the pleasure of being in the best place of the…

F1 Grand Prix Monaco 2014

I am sorry I wasn’t quick to add my vision during the period as I didn’t find a minute – contrary to what I expected as I figured out staying calm at the beach. It was the first year I could enjoy the GP as an adult: last year I was in Belgium, the other…

Smart shopping

Ok, I am definitely sick and spoiled – and yes I deserve it and must keep on as the university officially payed me some hundred bucks for PRODUCTIVITY AND MERIT 🙂 🙂 :). As soon as I decide to take a walk I always end up on the wild side of compulsive shopping. This is…

Philosophy takes life…

… And it’s life itself. Si suole dire:  “impara l’arte e mettila da parte”. E con altrettanta facilità “predichiamo bene e razzoliamo male”. Sin da piccoli ci vengono imposte religioni e valori propri del posto in cui cresciamo o della cultura alla quale la famiglia appartiene; un’etica che dovrebbe accompagnarci tutta la vita. Arrivati alle…

Paradis sur Terre

Paura del vuoto una volta finiti gli esami con solo la tesi da sistemare – perché è già in stato avanzato – fino a giugno… E mi dicevo che la noia è per i poveri di spirito, che sicuramente avrei fatto qualcosa per affrontare il vuoto causato dall’assenza degli interessantissimi tomi da studiare che per…
