- Back home

I'm back home in Rome, so I can officially say that my summer is over, or better, almost! I have only 2 more weeks left before school starts again. This summer flew by, maybe even more than the other ones. I can't believe I have to get ready to study again until July. This year is my last year of high school and I'll have to study a lot more for my final exams that are in June/July. That also means my summer will start later than usual but it'll be a lot more great since I'll be out of school forever! Wow, it feels so weird to say forever... but that's true, I won't go to school anymore. I don't know what I wanna do yet, I'll start thinking about it once school starts.

Talking about my summer... well it was a good one even though not the best one since I had a few weeks of me feeling quite sick. I went to the seaside in June, then I went to Switzerland and met Esther and Lianne and after that I spent a week with my friend Eleonora in my house in Abruzzo.

As promised, here's a pic of me with my new hair color and here's a pic of me and Eleonora in mid-august.
That's all for now, I'll write something again soon.

- Haopy birthday Shania!

As I said yesterday, this entry was going to be special, and it is, since today Shania turns 43 years old! I wanna wish her a great day with all the people she loves. She's going through a difficult time right now, but I know this will only make her an even stronger woman. I wish her all the best for the future and may all her dreams come true. We, fans, miss her a lot and we're looking forward to have her back with us.

I'm gonna hold on, cause what I believe in is so

no matter how long, no one,
can tell me I'm wrong

I ain't
goin' down..

- Brunette again

Well, after 3 years of being blond, I'm back to my natural colour. I planned to go to the hairdresser's just to cut my hair a bit but then I added something extra, and so I now find myself a brunette again. It feels so weird, really weird, to look at myself in the mirror and not see my old hair anymore. I actually wanted to cut my hair just a bit, but the hairdresser's didn't really listen to me and cut a lot more than what I wanted. That's okay... in a few months I'll have my old long hair again.

I don't know if I like it the way it is now but changing is good sometimes. I'll take a picture tomorrow and I will post it here for you to see and judge lol! I'm looking forward to hear your comments. Plus, tomorrow there will be a special entry... you'll see why ;)

- Quite some time

It's been a while since I last updated this blog and I'm sorry that I didn't post the Swiss review as promised, but I will when I get back home in Rome. I'm still in my house in Abruzzo, but not for long, I'm going back next Friday. I feel so sad because school is getting closer, but at the same time I'm so excited because it's going to be my last year of high school!

I also got a bit worried during the past few weeks. I was always feeling weak, I had a strange feeling of having nothing in my head and plus for a week I had a pain in the back of my head/neck that really hurt! I did a blood test but everything's great, so I guess I must be stressed... you know all the stress I had during the year came out when I started to relax. I'm still a bit worried because it's a bad feeling but now I'm doing better and trying not to think about it too often.

But during the last week I also had a lot of fun, because my Italian Shania friend Eleonora came over at my house in Abruzzo for a week and we had so much fun. The weather was great and time flew by!

I guess it's all for now, I'll write something soon before leaving for Rome.

- Just a few more hours

Time just flew by, it seems like yesterday I arrived here and here I am packing my luggage again. We're going back to Italy on Saturday right after lunch and our first stop is Aosta where we're sleeping for one night and on Sunday we're going to our house in Abruzzo. My vacations are going by so fast and in a few I'll be back in school. Fortunately, it's my last year of high school! Although my next summer vacations won't be so long since I'll have my last exams and I'll finish school around early july.. oh God I don't even wanna think about that!

I just put all the pics I took here this year on my livespace on MSN and some of them were posted on my blog, too. In the next few days I'll write a review of my two weeks here. I'll add some pics you haven't seen yet as well.

- Trip # 2

Hi there everyone! Today, it was a beautiful day, I think the most beautiful day since we arrived here. Sun, hot, not even a cloud and so many people around. Unfortunately, my holiday here is almost over... there are few days left and I already miss this place. But the thing that's making me feel less sad is that I can come here everytime I want since it's not that far from where I live.

This morning, we went to Gstaad, a very well known place in Europe because of it's mountains and the chances of skiing so well. It looks beautiful! No big houses, no flats or nothing that would remind you of a big city... only cottages and cows, many cows LOL.
I'm not a big fan of small villages, or better, I like them but I would live there since I'm too used and too in love with big cities, but here, even the smallest village is like a small city... you can find everything. I took some pics that I wanna show you and as always I suggest you to open the pics in a new window.

- National day

Today, August 1st, it's Switzerland day over here! They celebrate the day Switzerland was born and as every year I saw the amazing the fireworks they do, but I didn't get to see the party during the day because we went visiting another city here in Switzerland called Fribourg. Unfortunately the weather was quite bad, cloudy and we had a bit of rain as well. Thank God, everything stopped just in time to see the fireworks!
