Blocco dello scrittore: Put it all together, it spells Mother
d_butterfly
What's the most important lesson your mom taught you?

"When you'll find yourself against everyone you ever trusted, when you'll feel like the whole World has a reason to hate you to death, remember that your family will always be there for you."

I loved her for telling me this.

Blocco dello scrittore: Cinco de Mayo

Do you consider yourself patriotic? If so, how do you express it?

Definitely not.

It's not like I despise my origins or anything, but I really don't like being associated with certains tracts that are considered "typical" of my Country. I can say that I appreciate most fine arts, and I'm certainly proud of being Italian when it comes to paintings, sculptures, food, sense of fashion and...well, the culture of full-fledged affection. I talk with my hands, hug and kiss people I'm confident with.

But this fall, I'm going to move abroad, and it's not just because I like the place I'm heading to. Many times I've felt ashamed of being Italian: our politics are a constant joke, even overseas (honestly, I wanted to bang my head against the wall when I read about the "Rubygate" on a newspaper while I was in Canada.); we both have a "get-laid-as-soon-as-you-can" pressure and the Vatican influencing the social privileges of same-sex marriages or people living together without being married; you can't have a career unless you know someone who can smuggle you across interviews; and, gosh, I hate my region. Yes, we're great at preparing delicious food, but most people are so...superficial. Also, I long to live in a place where I can get out of my house wearing something less than a ski suit and not having random people shouting "appreciative" comments at me. Yes, we get it, we're Italians so we're passionate and loud, but for Christ's sake, chivalry is not an optional =___=

So basically...I'm never going to pretend I wasn't born here, or to reject my citizenship. And I'm surely going to have pasta everyday when I'll live in the UK, but I'm definitely not what can be defined a "proud patriot".

Blocco dello scrittore: Taking a trip with Mrs. Tibble

What name would you give to your car or bicycle, and why?

Well, my car (aka, my baby <3) has a name ^^

It's a Citroen C3, so pretty...round-shaped, and upon suggestion from my mum, I've decided to call it (or rather "her" :3) "Coccy". It's a shortening of "coccinella", which means "ladybug" in Italian.

D'awww, I love my Coccy *w*


Blocco dello scrittore: Toys in the attic

Did you have a favorite toy as a child that you took with you everywhere? If so, what was it and what happened to it?

Eheh. It "was" a teddy bear, no name given. I don't know why, usually I always think of some sort of name for my plushies O.o
Anyways, I received it as a gift when I was born, and well, it still sits on my bed after 23 years xD

Sooo...

 I'm actually super-bored because I'm probably going to be jobless until the end of April; I'm a freshly graduated University student and have no time to look for a job for the two months before summer...which means I'll be a sort of basement dweller until then xD (except for my 10-days overseas holiday in April <3 Can't wait)

So, now, survey time about fanfictions and fanreading!Collapse )
