I'm here!

I'm not planning to leave any time soon and I'm in the frame of mind I am going to go when/if they show me the door, but not before that!

I just realized I commented a couple of post, but I've never made a post about my staying, so here I am! If I have to be honest, the new policy didn't scare me a bit... This might be alarming as in there are so many scary things happening right now that this isn't even in the "moderately afraid" pile.



I have a Dreamwidth Account just for back up reasons only, but I'm not planning to go over there like at all for now! I am doing it just so that I can have a back up of all the lovely conversations I had with you guys... But, if something goes wrong with LJ, I don't think I'm going to post over there, but I'm sure we'll find a way to stay in touch... (on my main page there are links to my facebook/instagram/youtube/... accounts) but feel free to add me on DW as I am adding you, because I know myself and I might change my mind!

Life is sort of crazy right now and I am not spending a lot of time around here, but I hope to come back and be more active soon!
erychan86: (Dan Stevens)
A random update is long over due, so here it is...

Just let me say this first: Dear Beauty and the Beast franchise, here, take all my money, this is my wallet, this is my bank account number, just take it... Just give me my dignity back... Because I'm 30 years old and I can't cry at the movies like that for a Disney Movie (I can do it at home any time, but NOT at the movies) I just can't.

Okay, now that this is out of my system... before I spend the evening obsessing over Dan Stevens (I fell for the guy when I saw him on Legion to be honest with you... I mean, you know me... crazy skinny guys? I just have to go there), let me tell you a little bit about my life at the moment.


☾ As you can tell from the title I'm at war with a woodpecker who's annoying the whole neighborhood, pecking like he's on crack or something! We don't have a bug problem, but he just looooooves insulation material, and he's having the time of his life pulling it out, and having a laugh! Thing is... he's a beautiful bird so, I feel bad hating him so much! So, now he pecks and I knock on the wall to make him stop, and then I see him going to the neighbors and then - in 30 minutes - he's back, and we start our dance all over again!

☾ Today I had a pretty good day. I had coffee with my friend/former realtor Winnie, we ended up chatting for 2 hours no stop. Next time we're going to be more active, and go do one of these painting classes where they offer wine and cheese and you pretend you're there because you feel like creating!

☾ After coffee, I went for a bike ride and I went to get some sushi for lunch. There was a lot of people in front of me and the place is not that big. A girl came in after me and, since she was alone as I was, I asked if she wanted to join me if I got a table... It seemed such a waste to sit on a big table alone while people were going hungry. We ended up talking for an hour and an half, and we had a great lunch! At the end of it I said "that was fun, it was like a surprise blind date" and we had a final laugh. That was fun and it felt nice!

I have to vent on one stupid thing! Is it just me or it's THE MOST ANNOYING THING EVER when you are walking/biking and someone pass by on a car and honks or shouts a "complimet"? THANK YOU A$$H0LE, NOW THAT YOU APPRECIATED ME, I FEEL SO GOOD! GO FU*K YOURSELF! Thing is... in Italy, it happens too, but I yell back or i give them the finger... I can't do it here because WHAT IF THEY HAVE A GUN? I hate it! And it happens all the time! I just wish I could answer and shut them up!

☾ And I just want to talk a little about Beauty and the Beast so SPOILER FREE: I loved it! It was so damn good, and I did cry real tears, not internet tears! Everything was perfect... Once Upon a Time sort of ruined Belle and "the Beast" for me, I forgot how good the real thing was... Eric never saw it and doesn't know the story (he lived under a rock) so it's going to be fun showing it to him... and nowSPOILERS )
☾ Also I have another secret that will be revealed soon! :D I know you hate me for this LOL!

Okay! That was a big one! I am going to go start Downton Abbey so I can enjoy some more Dan Stevens (and I need to see this show otherwise my friends will stop talking to me) and wait for amazon to put the DVD/BLU-RAY on sale/pre-sale! I want like 30 copies! I can't wait to see all the extras... I'm still hoping in an extra scene like in Pride and Prejudice (2005) at the end! :D Remember, when Darcy and Lizzie decide how to call one another now that they're married... Maybe we can have a scene with Belle and the Prince talking about something! xD
erychan86: (Mood: Blank)
Sorry, I'm struggling to keep up with LJ these days, I hope you understand... We're moving in and there's so much to do! The place THANKFULLY is perfect and needs very little attention. We already decided what to keep and what to replace and we're making progress, but we have a lot of things we need to go through... We lived with our stuff in storage units for YEARS now and we don't even remember what we have!

Eric will be gone (for a WHOLE MONTH) in a week and I now need to concentrate on us and the house! Sorry! I will be back as soon as I have enough time to sit for more than 5 minutes!




P.S. Happy International Women's Day to you all wonderful women out there <3

Hello Flist!
Finally a day off! I slept like a baby last night and I woke up to the Season Finale of WestWorld! What a day to be alive! Also it seems like the Italian Government fell... again... Interesting times, interesting times!


Work is good! I am selling more than the other people, owner included! I'm on fire. I organized (as per request) some of the spaces and now I know where everything is and I created an easier system to fins things and everyone seems very happy about it!

My phone is not happy! Two nights ago, it decided it would have been fun if he pretended to charge instead of actually doing it... so I woke up thanks to a noise in the kitchen, to find out I had to be out of the house in 15 minutes if I wanted to get to work on time... The phone was dead and it was asking me to charge it (while plugged on a working plug). I had to change plug, wire, room,... everything and: nothing... I tried to reboot it and nada... Suddenly he decided to come back to life, and now it works... The downside is I am scared I won't hear the alarm in the mornings so I don't sleep that well now. Time to get a new one!

♨ Yesterday I went to work, but we opened an hour later so I felt rested. During the night I dreamt of my grandfather who passed almost 10 years ago the day after Christmas. It's not the first time... I always dream of him after a bad/sad day, these dreams are so real that when I wake up I wonder if he's still alive, just to realize I've lost him and I get really sad! Thing is, in the dream I know he is dead and we talk about the fact he came back to me... I don't know what it means. These are very different dreams, maybe because are charged with strong emotions that came from somewhere deep inside my memories, I don't know. I don't believe in afterlife or spirits... the thing is, if I believed in something like that, it would just for him. It saddens me the fact I won't see him ever again and I wasn't able to say goodbye!

♨ The other day a little girl came to the store to buy a Pandora Charm for her mother. We started talking and she was so much fun! She said to me something very weird though. She wanted to send me cake but she knew I was going back to America soon, so she said she would send me something else. I won't say what it is for now because it feels very strange that she said that! I promise, if what she said happens when she said it would, I'll tell you all about it!

I went to vote yesterday and it felt good! It also felt good to see how many people in my village voted. Some voted for the wrong reasons, but I'm glad the "No" won! I'm not going to go into all the political mambo-jumbo, I promise. I know now Italy will have a though time since Renzi (the PM no one voted for) stepped down, but this is better than what would have happened if the "Yes" won! There is so much to do to fix this country, but there's still hope! I'm happy people voted to save our Constitution, something that was created by the people for the people.

The Westworld finale was so good and I predicted a huge thing last week while talking with my friends... Not the Man In Black thing, but something about Ford's motives... So good!Spoilery stuff under the cut )

That's it for now. Time to go catch up on some shows! I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and a great monday!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OF MY AMERICAN FRIENDS!
And Happy Thursday for who doesn't celebrate it! :)




✿ I just got back home from my first day at work and I had so much fun! I had to organize stuff and I LOVE organizing! It wasn't busy at all but time passed by quite quiclky. Tomorrow I'll probably start fixing their computers because apparently they need a lot of Love!

✿ The other day I saw this recipe for a Water Cake and I read it out of curiosity... It's a cake with no eggs (I never have eggs in the house) no butter (butter always expire in my fridge when Eric is not around) and no milk (milk is for cappuccino only, do not touch it for any other reason) so I decided to make it... I had a lot of sugar in the house that I only use when I make the bread, because the recipe calls for it. The cake was SO GOOD! After the first bite I realizes that was a Vegan Cake, and I got very excited... My dad came over and he tried it, without me saying it was vegan, and he liked it too! It's so soft and moist... I'm definitely going to make it again! I'm having it for dinner with cappuccino and juice tonight!

Eric had 2 days off so we managed to have two phone dates and last night I cried a little after we talked because it hit me how much I miss him and I'm not going to see him for more than a month... I'm so glad they made it to Fort Lauderdale even if the Ocean was a bitch apparently! They had 14 days of bad weather! He's going to have the weekend off too, so he only has to work today and tomorrow! I just want to see him! I miss him so much!!! He'll be headed to the Bahamas around the 7th of December for work, and he'll be back to Fort Lauderdale during the first week of January and I'll be there waiting for him! I couldn't even catch a plane and go see him, because I know how busy he gets before a trip (I know it because I lived it on my skin for 4 years... that boat is insane!)

✿ A lot of people is making Christmas cards and I want to kick myself because I don't have my supplies here and I want to send cards! I love cards! So I'm thinking of what to do... Maybe send belated ones as soon as I'm back to Florida? Do some e-cards? Do some fan arts? I don't know... Tell me, what should I do?

✿ I started a new book by Dixie Cash... It's not what I expected, but it's an easy read! I want to finish it before the end of the month and I hope I'll be able to, since all my shows are entering the winter hiatus and I am basically caught up with all of them!

✿ I think my favorite show at the moment is Lucifer! I can barely wait for the next episode, I think they're doing a GREAT job this season!... I haven't got so excited for a show in a while. I'm also so excited about Gilmore Girls and I can't wait for it to come out! It's going to be glorious... I'll probably watch it all in one night xD. Also the Arrow/Flash/LoT/Supergirl crossover is coming, and I keep seeing videos of the cast being adorable all over youtube and I hope it's going to be as good as I expect it to be! :D

✿ Also this: Obama awards Ellen DeGeneres the Medal of Freedom This speech was so moving! I'm going to miss Obama so much! You can fine the whole event HERE and you should!!!

I'm not exactly having the greatest day today.

It actually started right.... I woke up very happy, had breakfast with Eric and brought him to work. On our way there we talked and I started realizing: tomorrow morning will be the last morning I drive him to work for a long time! I came back home, and I worked on some projects, when he wrote me a text... Apparently the boat is suppose to leave tomorrow... But as in: 1 minute after midnight, so basically He'll be gone in less than 11 hours and I feel robbed! I was ready to be parted from him tomorrow morning... Not tonight! So I'll go pick him up and we're having dinner at home, and then I'll drive him back to the boat and we'll say our goodbyes. The next 2 months are going to be very long!

So the question of the day for me can only be one:


Would you relocate for Love?
Have you ever been in a lond distance relationship, or would you consider it?
Do you think absence makes the heart grow fonder or forgetful?

My Answer )

How about you? What's your opinion on the matter?
erychan86: (Real Life: Books)
I'm very ashamed of myself... I haven't read much this month either. I have some good reasons and some less good ones. I've been traveling around quite a lot and I've been trying to spend as much time as I can with Eric and in the evening I'm just so tired that I can't read as much as I want... Next month should be easier since I'm completely alone and I'll need a distraction... The other reason (the bad one) is that my TV calendar is full, as I neglected my books I also neglected my shows so I am behind with almost everything and I'm trying to catch up as fast as I can, so that I can go back dividing my time equally between books and shows.

Also Eric now really likes Suits, so I am re-watching it with him and it's fun! He is totally into it and he wants to watch it together so I can't watch something else when he's in a TV mood... The funny thing is: Eric tends to watch an episode a day and no more than that... With Suits we end up watching 3 episodes per night! I'm glad he likes it so much! But this is a post about books so:

Here's what I've read this month:






A Place For Us
Originally published: Feb 2016
Author: Harriet Evans
Genre: Fiction / Contemporary
(reading time: Sept 23 - Oct 15)
★★★
I like books narrated from different points of view and I quite enjoyed all the character in the novel, but the book felt very long... I think the story could have been told in less pages.






The Time Keeper
Originally published: Oct 2013
Author: Mitch Albom
Genre: Fiction / Fantasy
(reading time: Oct 18- Oct 19)
★★★★★
This book was so good! I read it while flying from Miami to Paris. I could not put it down... I love Mitch Albom and the the way he writes. This book is a masterpiece and I think it should eventually became a Classic! It is truly something everyone should read and talk about!

I'm now reading A Man Called Ove and it seems pretty good!

TOTAL of BOOKS READ 2016: 32 / oct: 2

No LJ... WHY?

I don't know if you guys noticed but, LJ now gives you the option to leave a heart to an entry... You all know what it means... People will stop comment and just heart entries! I really don't like this because I like to have conversations with my friendlist, and I hope I'm not the only one feeling disappointed by this new addition!

I really don't understand the need for it! I understand it in socials like instagram, because you're saying you're liking that photo, but what about here? It doesn't make any sense... Here a post about my day and its ups and downs... heart... What does it mean? LJ is a place where we use words to espress ourselves and create a dialogue with other people... These hearts are not lovely, are a way to say "I read it, I'm not taking the time to write a comment, I have to do something else". This is very upsetting to me!

I wil heart entries, if there is something to heart (like a photo post or a video post) but I will always comment, because this is why I am here, to create a dialogue and get to know people! Basically hearts don't get us closer... They keep us apart!

This is how I feel about it.

P.S. I'm on my lady days so I feel pretty strong about a lot of things xD

HAPPY HALLOWEEN GUYS!

I hope you're having so much fun! [livejournal.com profile] favoritexrecord asked me the perfect question for today:

What's your favorite Halloween costume you wore as a kid?


And I don't have an answer LOL because I've never celebrated Halloween when I was a kid because we don't do it in Italy... That's so upsetting!

But I can tell you what would have been my favorite costume if I could dress up as anything as a kid: I would have been a pirate! I LOVED pirates! So for Halloween I would have been one of the dead pirated from Pirates of the Caribbean :D
_______

What are you planning for Halloween? Are you celebrating today or you did it over the weekend?

Eric and I are going to "celebrate" tonight, we're going to or favorite pizza place, but no costume... We had a very nice Sunday, we went out for a couple of walks, and did a lot of talking about the future and other things... It was a very nice day and we fought the sleepiness to be able to spend the whole day together, without loosing even a moment... The moment of separation is getting closer and we're feeling it! It's going to be hard to be away from each other for so long...

Still catching up with my shows, it's Once Upon A Time time... I'm almost there. I'm watching episode 4 now and it's so funny how, on every show, one of the characters ends up cutting his/her hair and does a great job... xD I think I might give up on Blindspot and Conviction... I'm watching these shows just for Jaimie and Hayley but the rest is just so boring now!
erychan86: (Carachter: Hannah (SDoaCG))
Eric and I left York, PA yesterday morning at 5.30 am and we reached St Simons Island, GA last night!

We're now at his brother Joe place (I adore Joe he's so much fun) and we're going to spend the day helping him Christine (his wife) cleaning up the yard before leaving for Miami, FL tomorrow morning at 5 am. We'll have to stop to Fort Lauderdale, FL to drop off some of the things we moved from a storage unit to the other, on our way down... our flight is at 8.30 pm so I think we're going to have plenty of time to do all we have to do.

We had 3 detours on I-95 S. All 3 of them in North Carolina. One of them brought us into a town and it was just so sad... :( so much destruction... All the trees and all that water...

I'll try to go through my friend list, but I have a couple of busy days ahead of me, so I'm sorry if I can't comment on some of your posts...

I post dated some of my entries for the October meme, and I wrote them pretty quickly so I'm sorry about that!!! I'll get back to LJ properly on Tuesday... until then take care and have a great weekend!
erychan86: (Community: Abed)
It's finally time for me to post some of the awesome pictures I took at the party last weekend!

To give you a little bit of a backgrownd informations about what the party was for, I will start by saying that Eric has been working on this for almost a year! He had this idea about getting all his friends, from different parts of his life, together in one place, to celebrate the fact they were all turning 50. The event was splitted in two evenings.

The first one was at Victor's, this awesome pub that ages ago was a church... The place is awesome and the food is super good! We had dinner there and then Tom, Dick and Howie played their guitars for the rest of the evening. Tom is the guy who married Eric and I, and Howard and David (Dick) are two of Eric's closest friends, thet met in Tampa in the 80es when Howard invited Eric to spend some time with he and his flatmates down there. Eric quit his job and started a new chapter of his life there and they became very close friends! Their playlist was 95% Grateful Dead and 5% Hits from the 80es! They were amazing! They haven't played together for a while since Tom (the Rev) lives in North Carolina and Howard and David are here in Pennsylvania but they live quite far from eachother...

It wasn't easy to take pictures in that space unfortunately so I don't have a lot of good shoots about that evening:Pics from the First Evening )

The second evening was at the Studio, this big space Eric rented from 3 pm to midnight. 5 bands were playing that evening! All of them are Eric's friends and most of them didin't knew each other... the evening was such a success. At some point the band mixed up, and they all played together and created great music! That was fantastic!

PICS FROM THE SECOND EVENING )

It was so much fun! And Eric (and all his friends) had the time of his life! He worked so hard on this project and I couldn't be happier about the result! He's going to remember this evening forever!!!

erychan86: (Music/Musical)
I'm excited about this question because I have the same question for next week, so I need to listen to some new music... :D

Favorite song right now? [livejournal.com profile] ragnarok_08

I have a favorite album at the moment that I listen to on repeat and it's Atlas by Sleeping at Last. It's not something new, I've been in love with this album for a very long time... I have troubles choosing a favorite song because they are so many! My first love was Saturn and - after I've used it for my Ten/Rose Music Video I started playing it at the guitar too so I think if I have to choose one that would be it!


My other favorite are Earth, Sun and Light. It's a great album and you should give it a try!
_______

Eric and I are in York, PA! Finally... We got in last night and we went straight to bed!
We drove through Washington DC and that got me so excited! I really want to go visit the Capitol!
It's the first time I've been in the new house (his mom and step-dad moved in a year ago) and I love it! It's crazy to think I've haven't seen my in-laws for more than a year now... But I guess is kind of normal since we live so far away and Eric and I travel a lot! Anyway it is definitely fall up here! I wasn't ready for the temperature change and I'm both happy (YAY SEASONS) and worried because I only have summer clothes xD

Last night, before going to bed, I opened all the packages I sent up there in the past 3 months and I forgot I had bought all that awesome stuff! That's the best thing about not having an address, you have to send stuff somewhere else and then collect it after a while and it's like Christmas!

So now I have Han Solo (Ceremony) Pop, finally a cute Han Solo Pop. Number 2 and 3 of the Han Solo Comic Book. The World According to Star Wars a book I was very excited about since I saw it online and, since [livejournal.com profile] orangerful liked it, I can't wait to read it! 1 Birchbox box (there was an offer on the website I do my daily surveys and I wanted to try it) full of make up and 3 of my ipsy glambags, where I finally received something for my brows and something for my hair!

I can't wait for lunch because we're going to have Isaac's and I LOVE their soup! I would move up north just for Isaac's alone... But I'd have to give up on my Veggie Burgers at Burger-Fi since that's a chain that's just in Florida... Oh I hate this LOL!
erychan86: (Mood: Okay)
Eric and I are still traveling North.
We've stopped for the night in Fayetteville, NC, and now we're going going out to explore and for some breakfast... I'm craving Krispy Kreme... That Offer on National Coffee Day definitely worked because I'm hooked up!
We've never stop here so I hope I'll find something pretty! :D
____________

[livejournal.com profile] imagine_peace asked What is the best thing about living in Italy? What about the United States?

I was talking with Eric about it the other day (he loves Italy) and I was telling him how my leaving home (Italy) made me learn how to love it and miss it... but still, now I'd never being able to give up on the US . Every time I leave Florida I instantly miss it, and it happens the same when I'm leaving Italy too! So, a thing that I really like about both places is that they're able to make me feel home and I find myself missing them when I'm not there! I don't take either Country for granted!


The best thing about living in Italy is food! Sorry to be too obvious! And it's all about the quality, not the variety. Everything is good... and the coffee (but if you buy a Nespresso Coffee Maker you can have Italian Coffee at home too). I love the energy of Italians and they way they move. I like that are pretty straight forward, meaning: if I don't like you I'll let you know, while Americans are (from my experience) too nice and sometimes it comes out as fake. I like the fact that when I'm there I'm surrounded by History and Old Souls! Italy makes me feel good about being who I am, and it gives me an heaviness that I like to have in me.

The best thing about living in America is the variety. You can find everything you can possibly think about! Everything is vast and new! I love the sense of unlimited possibilities! America makes me want to be better and expand my horizons. Makes me feel like everything is possible and lifts my spirit! Also FREE WIFI EVERYWHERE! That's the best thing! Restaurants are open all day (if you want to eat at 3 pm in Italy you probably won't find any restaurant open) as well as shops! If I'm low on milk I can go to CVS even in the middle of the night! That's handy!

So, in a few words: Together, this Countries make me whole! That's the thing I love the most!!!
erychan86: (Real Life: Books)
Third day of the Ask Me Anything Meme!

The question of the day is: What is your favourite flower and why? [livejournal.com profile] monkiainen

I had to think a bit about it because there are a lot of flowers that I like, but then I had to go back to the the first that came to mind! The Sunflower!
I just like the fact it looks like the Sun and it constanly searches for it. It's like a love story!!! That doesn't sound like a healthy love story though... you're copying your loved one and keep looking for them... nope definitely unhealthy XD but I like the flower anyway!
Also, Van Gogh is my favorite painter and he painted a lot of sunflowers, so... :D



Sunflowers are also known for their symmetry based on Fibonacci numbers and that's just awesome!!!
______

Eric and I are traveling north. We left this morning the apartment in Fort Lauderdale, FL and we're now driving up to York, PA where we're going to be for 2 weeks before leaving for Italy again! We are about to cross the border and enter Georgia... Florida stretches quite a lot!

We're going to stop somewhere on the road and break the trip in 2 parts since Eric is doing all the driving... I only drive in Italy XD

For those who don't know I can't drive in America because the streets are too wide... it scares me! I need to get a Florida driving licence so that I have a document with my married name on it that is not my green card or credit card... but I just can't... it goes again against all I know... taking the test, driving in a parking lot with a car with no stick seems like a crime! So I'm postponing and I have to let Eric sit behind the wheel...
erychan86: (Community: Abed)
Hello Flist!
Hope you're having a great Thursday, also known as baby Friday xD I thought t drop by for a quick update!

➜ Now that Eric is home (thank you for all your safe travel messages) I'm super busy and very happy! I hate to be alone and it's so great having him around with his post-it notes full of ideas and things to do and his energy... playing my guitar while I check my email... It's just lovely! It has been a long time since we spent some quality time together and we needed it!

➜ Today is the best day ever because it's National Coffee Day and - as you know - I LOVE COFFEE with all my heart! I checked online for coffee offers and it looks like Krispy Kreme gives away free coffees and free glazed doughnuts so that's where we're headed after lunch!

➜ Yesterday we went to Barnes & Noble because I had a 25 $ gift card to use and there were some pretty good deals, so I ended up buying quite a lot of books and - of course - I want to read them all now! I bought (from the bargain priced table):
   -(Something) Borrowed and (Something) Blue by Emily Giffin: two books in one, I saw the movie Something Borrowed a couple of months ago, and I liked it a lot and - since the book is always better than the movie - I thought it was a good idea to get it (and it was less than 6 $)!
   -The Grown Ups by Robin Antalek: I love books that explore bonds between families and friends and this seems pretty well written!
   -Our Red Hot Romance by Dixie Cash: because the story seems fun even if the title seems to be about something different. She's a funny writer so I know I'll have fun with it!
   -The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom: because I read The First Call from Heaven recently and I love the way this guy writes! This book seems even more interesting, so I can't wait!
Then I went upstairs and I ended up buying more books, full price this time xD
   -My Grandmother Asked Me to tell You She's Sorry and A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman because I've been meaning to buy them both since the day thay came out but I never did and now it was time. I was attracted by A Man Called Ove because I liked The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (Jonas Jonasson) so much, and this book reminded me of it.
   -The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan because it sounds like a story of self discovery and I love that.
   -The Whispers Beyond the Veil by Jessica Estevao because period drama YAY

➜ The DVD section at B&N it's so AWFUL... very disorganized (like whole book store to be honest...) I don't really like B&N but it's the only book store around here. I went in, looking for Suits BlueRay (I wanted to check the fearures) and I just wanted to reorganize it all! Of course, every time I'm there, people asks me where to find books and I end helping them... It's like no one works there and people get so confused because it's so badly organized, so I feel like I need to help them. I should aply for a job there... I'd love to organize the store and I know already I can help and I could talk about books all the time! :D

➜ I still have some space for questions on my Ask me Anything Meme so feel free to comment (even here) with some questions if you feel like it! :)
erychan86: (Ship: Ten/Rose [Doctor Who])
I need to take a break from what I'm doing so I'll write a quick update!

➜ Outside is raining so I've been working on my Ten/Rose [Doctor Who] Music Video so I ended up watching you-know-which scenes from Doomsday and Journey's End and I've been crying like is 2006 (and then like it's 2008)! I just can't deal with it... 10 years later I still cry when Rose says "I love you" and the Doctor vanishes, leaving her on the beach (Bloody Bad Wolf Bay... I've been there twice... Very nice place if you don't think about how it shattered your heart not once but twice) alone... That would be the most tragic thing ever if not than then the scene goes back into the TARDIS and the Doctor is all teary eyes and he opens his mouth to say something, but then he gives up and a tear run down his cheek... WHAT.THE.$%#%$#%. Don't even get me started on the "Does it need saying" in Journey's End because I'm already crying on the floor, no need to kick me in the stomach! Anyway! I miss Russel T Davies and I'm sorry if there are Moffat's fans here but he can't even kiss Russel's shoes, let alone wear them... Don't get me wrong... I LOVED Matt, Karen, Arthur, Peter (<3) and Jenna, but they could have been - using the tenth Doctor's words - "SO.MUCH.MORE". Also... back in 2006, they were filming these episode with the WORST lents EVER! I'm straggling making a 1080p video!

➜ I also watched the reward bit in The End of Time Part 2 and yes... That was painful too!

➜ On an happier note my [Suits] Harvey/Donna - I don't love you, I always will Music Video is doing pretty good on youtube. 1560 views in 6 days! That's just great! I'm very happy because I'm very proud of it!

➜ Other happy news: Eric is coming back home tomorrow! He'll be here tomorrow evening and we have a sushi night planned! I can't wait! I hope the weather will be good! We're going to stay here in Florida for a week and then go visit his family up in York, PA. So I will have to put my Mac back in storage (that's why I'm working so much on music videos). His flight ROMA-MIA has already being delayed 2 hours, but it's normal because the airport in Rome is just the worst (NEVER fly to Rome, always to Milan!) but he's happy so he'll have more to get his connection since he's leaving from Genova and he had just one hour in Rome (never enough). Eric LOVES airports LOL!

➜ Talking about the weather (like I'm my grandma) this morning I realized I was out of milk so I had to go out to get some for my cappuccino. When I opened the door it was still quite dark and I didn't check the sky because it was 6:30 am, but when I came out from the store it was like someone turned on 10 showers with awesome water pressure! I had to run home because I didn't want the milk to go bad, I needed my morning cappuccino and I honestly feared to get stuck there forever and had to call for a water taxi to come pick me up!

Once Upon a Time last night was Good! I forgot all that happened at the end of season 5, so I was confused (I should have watched the an hour recap on ABC). I'm quite interested in seeing what will happen but it seems quite obvious who's Emma's nemesis... I mean who was the only one missing in that scene? We'll see! I hope they won't mess up the Rumple/Belle/BabyWithDaddyIssues story because it can be interesting too!

Back to the music vidoe now... Hope your week was off to a great start!

Hello F-List!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was very productive!

I settled in into the apartment and made a couple of trips to storage to gather what I needed to survive this month (Mac, Coffee Maker, Extra Pillow, Bike, Leftover stuff from my last staying,...) and - as per usual - the change of time zone didn't messed up my body *pats herself on the back* although, my mind was struggling with getting use to it... But anyway:

➜ Welcome new friends: [livejournal.com profile] xfirefly9x, [livejournal.com profile] batmarg, [livejournal.com profile] tigtogiba34, [livejournal.com profile] favoritexrecord, [livejournal.com profile] cherrytattoo77, [livejournal.com profile] sometimesartist, [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk, [livejournal.com profile] imagine_peace, [livejournal.com profile] xlovebecomesher and [livejournal.com profile] mimoiikit143 (please let me know if I'm forgetting someone) I'm so excited... I can't wait to get to know you all better! :)

➜ Since I added a lot of new friends I wanted to know if you feel like I should do an introduction post or you would rather me making a question meme where you can come and ask whatver you feel like (I love weird/intriguing/crazy questions... oh I love the so much!) or something similar... You tell me what you want me to do, and I'll do it. I was also thinking I want to do some sort of a weekly post about fandoms and ships, since I have so many... And a monthly post with my favourite things... I don't know... All I know I'm a control freak and I want to do something very organized xD

➜ My weekend was all about music videos, as you might know. I've been waiting two long months to be reunited with my Mac and I just felt like spending a lot of time with it... Especially considering outside it's so hot... Florida, WTF?! I posted my Vincent Van Gogh [Doctor Who] the other day and I'm so excited to see so many of you commented on it and liked it! Thank you very much. It means the World to me! Last night I finished my Donna/Harvey [Suits] Music Video and I think it's the best video I've made so far. Maybe because I love the song so much [Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars] or maybe because I've been obsessed with suits recently (I binge-watch the whole thing in 2 weeks) I don't know... Today I'll fix some minor errors, so that I can make it perfect and I'll post it very soon. Next one might be another Doctor Who one... A Ten/Rose because I just have the perfect song for them and I miss that ship very much!

➜ I should make a couple of pic spams but I'm kind of bored with the layout and I would like something different and I should make some icons one of these days!

➜ I'm currently reading The Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver, but I'm not giving it enough time... It's a very good book (if you liked the movie Sliding Doors, you might consider reading it) but it goes very deep into the head of the protagonist and there are not a lot of things happening so far.

➜ Last week the TV season started for me with Blindspot and the episode was great! Very strong season premiere, let's hope the show won't have as many fillers as last year! I'm very interested in the story. But my TV season really starts this week: I can't wait for Lucifer tonight, I loved season one and the cliffhanger was so good... and I cannot wait! Tomorrow Agents of SHIELD and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be back in my weekly schedule, so I can spend my Tuesdays flipping tables for one and laughing with the other... and then Sunday: Once Upon a Time... Feels like this season has potential. We need a great bad guy and who's better than the Evil Queen? I mean this trailer makes me think this season could be awesome... There's going to be a lot of Lana and this makes me so happy! I'm adding to my calendar The Good Place as well because of Kristen Bell's face! I don't know if it's going to be any good but I need some comedies!

I know, I know... The joke is old but I could't find a better title! :)

Thank you guys about all the "safe travels" messages... I am here, safe and sound. It has been a pretty intense journey, and yesterday, it was one of the busiest days of my life.

Since basically I don't have a home, and I keep moving from a place to another every 6 months keeping all my stuff in a storage unit, I have this need to settle in right away. The night I got in Fort Lauderdale, I had to unpack and go to storage to get my iMac (I've missed you so much, baby) and my Nespresso Coffee Maker... So when I woke up yesterday morning I had my nice coffee (I stuffed my suitcase with Italian Nespresso Compatible capsules... better and cheaper) and I turned on my Mac that has been working non stop to vonvert from .mkv to .mp4 all the Suits episode...

It's taking so long because I'm converting 1080p files, so that than I can finally work on my Harvey/Donna Music Video. (I have to because Final Cut Pro doesn't read .mkv yet). I'm so excited about this video. I'm using Poison & Wine by the Civil Wars (Here listen to this AMAZING song) and the song is just so perfect for this couple... While iSkysoft is working on converting all the episodes, I'm also working on another music video about Vincent Van Gogh with the song Starry Starry Night (not the Don McLean version but the Josh Groban one, because I like the rhythm better) using clips from Vincent and the Doctor from Doctor Who. I've been thinking about this video for years now, and while I was listening to some old playlists on my flight, it all came back to me and so here I am! Very excited about this project too!

I also wanted to say hello to my new friends: [livejournal.com profile] adamas, [livejournal.com profile] flirting, [livejournal.com profile] hanorganaas, [livejournal.com profile] jediknightmuse, [livejournal.com profile] kaitydid33087, [livejournal.com profile] monkiainen, [livejournal.com profile] moongirl24, [livejournal.com profile] ragnarok_08 and [livejournal.com profile] topum and I decided to upload a new-ish profile (Click) but I have to still work on it, and write something interesting in there... I was thinking about making another *insert month here* question meme, since it seems the better way to get to know people better... Let me know if you think I should do it... I had so much fun last time I did it and the questions were EXCELLENT!

Oh and here another friending meme! :) I love this stuff and this one is a very good one, so go check it out!!!

I'm right here :)

That will be all from me! Have a great day!

I'm about to board another plane and fly over seas... First stop will be Paris where I'm going to hang out for 5 hours... Then Miami, where I'll get an Uber (oh I missed you Uber) to Fort Lauderdale... I'll be there just in time to settle down and watch Suits mid season finale WOOOOO! XD

I feel very nervous for some reasons... I have everything with me but I have the usual annoying feeling I've left something behind... Maybe I left the gas on... No I'm sure I didn't... Am I? Okay enough XD

Anyway Eric will join me in less than 2 weeks so, if I'm missing something important, he can bring it over...

Things I'm happy to be reunited with:
1. I'll be reunited with my Mac and I'll be able to work on my Harvey/Donna music video!
2. Tokio Sushi... I've missed that restaurant so much!
3. Stores open all day long!
4. The positivity
5. My bicycle
...

Things I'm going to miss (even if for just a month)
1. Mom and dad and the whole family
2. My friends
3. Focaccia (a Genovese kind of bread)
4. My Vespa and my Smart Car and being able to drive around
5. My apartment
6. All the things that make me feel home and calm

Funny thing I'll be in the US just in time for the tv season to start... LOL that's timing XD

Have a great day and sorry for the randomness XD

P.S.  FRIENDING MEME OVER HERE

This morning I wrote a post about being super excited about my hairdresser appointment.
Last time I went it was last October and I did't do anything to it since then. Willy was impressed by the health of my hair. He asked me if I cut it myself because there were no split ends and it was super strong!

I love when someone compliments my hair, but when it comes to someone who deals with it for a living, it worths even more to me.

So this is the result.... 4 hours later (apparently I have too much hair xD)


(sorry for my face xD)

OMG! I am so happy with the result! I wish I could go full on blonde but I can't because I spend a lot of time in the States and I cant go to an hairdresser there... But this is just perfect! I love it!!!
