First week of exams is over

I must say I'm happy with the results. The English Oral and Translation exams went definitely well, and the Italian exam that I did yesterday seemed almost easy to do. Now I'm waiting to find out what the professor will think of it, but I'm not too worried.

If you are wondering what kind of degree am I pursuing or where am I doing that, let me explain.
I am enrolled (is that a word?) at university in Milan, the Catholic University to be exact. I study to get a bachelor degree in languages and international relations, and I'm currently trying to pass the second year exams. This semester I still have seven exams to pass and I've already done three. Oh, and the languages I'm learning are English and Mandarin Chinese.

I'm also happy because in the meantime I managed to spend some time with my boyfriend and buy a couple of things while I was out, and that's always a fun thing to do. I love going shopping but I never spend too much because I'm really picky and all the things that I want to get need to be exactly what I wanted in terms of material, colours and fitting.
So far I've bought some jewellery and socks, I'm still looking for the perfect high-waisted skinny jeans (or trousers). It's so hard to find the perfect pair of jeans.

I found this beautiful statement necklace (and it was 50% off!) 

Well, now I have to go back to my English books, I'm revising for the next exam which is the English Written one. Today I also wanted to film a video for my YouTube channel but I'm not feeling too well so I think I won't do that. I'll see. 

Goodbye, thanks for stopping by. Have a good day :)

Hello everyone!

First of all, I wanted to thank you for stopping by.

I'm starting this blog as part of the project that I have already started some months ago on YouTube.
I feel like I need to do more, create stuff, talk to people, instead of just living in front of my computer screen observing somebody else's life and wishing I could do the things they do.

I can.
I can do all of these things.
or at least, I can try.

I have many, many dreams. I've always lived in my own world and dreamt of becoming an actress, or being able to sing, or having a blog, just to mention some of them.
Growing up, I often felt like most of them were too hard to pursue and said to myself that I should focus on the 'safe' ones and forget about the others. 

But then I always come across some people that are pursuing those dreams and I feel envious, honestly envious because I realise I gave up and they didn't. 

I want to start again and try to work on each one of them, one by one, taking baby steps until I'll manage to feel accomplished. I want to feel like I tried, I want to be proud of myself.

The first step has been creating a YouTube channel, now I'm working on matching it with this blog.
I'll try to do a good job with these two and then move onto the others (without giving up on videos and posts, hopefully).

The content of this blog is going to be pretty random and definitely personal.
I hope you'll like at least some of it.

Thank you for stopping by and supporting me,
Marti xx
