2014, year of 365

Happy New Year

The year is ending, and I confess: I don’t feel ready.

This 2014 had its ups and downs, but it was a year unlike any other in many respects.

It was the year I realised how much I like London and why. The year I started thinking about moving.

Many other good things also happened,...

Still on the high seas

Christmas is approaching, and the number of things done is not increasing. I have managed to freshen up the place, though it’s still not what I’d like; luckily, change is easy enough.

Tiredness has now reached guard level, and yesterday, while I was at my favourite hairdresser’s, I fell asleep dry, despite the house full of people and confusion,...

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!

It has been about two months that I have had a list of five things to do that I cannot do in any way. Two months in which I should have found the time, the time has passed, and that list remains there.

A couple of things I have started, but there is still a long way to go to finish them....

New year, new life

We are not the first, and we will not be the last.

We are part of a sad statistic of people who, for many different reasons, decided that the time had come to leave the country where they were born and raised to seek a new life abroad.

Many, like us, decided they wanted this new life in a country,...

See you later

The time has come to close, but this time for real.
The blog will stay here,...

The 15-year rule

On this dreary day, with thunder and lightning from a summer storm, it occurred to me that at the end of this month, it will be 15 years since I have lived in Milan.
My life so far has been divided more or less into 13, almost 14 years in Rome (actually, the first few years were much more troubled than that),...

#365 - The last one

Getting to this post was quite a feat, but I have already written about it in other posts. I certainly learnt a few things: I will not do something like this again, not even in another form (like photos). It is far too challenging for my limited possibilities.
The other important thing I realised is that I will never write for a living....

#364 - Bitterness

In fifteen years of work, I have changed thirty different companies, small, medium, and large. I have also had all kinds of contracts, except VAT. I have worked with so many different people on so many different projects.
Two things have always remained the same: it has never been possible to trust the company, for the smallest up to the most significant issues,...
