A little bit better

Fear knocked at the door, Faith answered and nobody was there

Fear knocked at the door. [Insert the word you prefer here: faith, courage, love] answered, and nobody was there.

This has been one of my favorite quotes for years, it has a special meaning to me; my mom said this to me when I was going through a tough moment and I’ve never forgotten it. So, some nights ago I was a lil’ low, and doing this cheered me up. Especially because it’s written on a pic I took during a rad trip.


Yesterday I went to one of my best friend’s uni graduation in Venice. I wanted to go for Mardi Gras but I didn’t manage to; in the end it wasn’t actually a big deal since Tuesday the weather was absolute crap, and there was also acqua alta (which basically means that many of Venice streets are flooded by the high tide). But yesterday was great! Sunny, and so warm it totally felt like spring. And my friend was so happy, her family was happy, my mom was happy, I was happy – everybody was, so, all in all, a pretty sweet day.

What I’ve been up to

I haven’t been online lately, I was studying for a big big exam – that I didn’t pass. Yay for me! – so I haven’t had much time to update the blog. So here’s what I’ve been up to in the past week and a half (I also regained possession of my camera). Read more

Sometimes even winter’s nice

This doesn’t happen to me very often during winter, and especially not lately, during exams period (I tend to get really anxious and overwhelmed by a certain sense of guilt, when I feel I’m not doing enough), but today I feel calm. The light outside is gorgeous, it’s not sunny but it’s luminous and bright. It’s not even remotely warm, but it already feels like spring, if you know what I mean. The kind of day you just want to spend between the bed and the winter sea, with your loved one, maybe in a surf shack like this (I was surfing through Airbnb yesterday and I absolutely fell in love with it). The only thing I miss right now is my camera, to take some neutral toned, tranquil pictures, but I lent it to my boyfriend so for now some Pinterest will have to do the job.
