A series of fortunate events

It happened again. I lost my regularity in keeping this blog updated.

So, here it comes another wrap up of the main events from October 13 until today:

1) Went to London, Nottingham, back to London, Eindhoven (setting a second-highest record of being awake for 44 hours straight), Amsterdam, Rotterdam, back to Copenhagen (yes, a hell of a trip including a 16-hour bus ride):

p.s.: more pictures to come!

2) Casually met Ban Ki-Moon while studying in the library… He was really focused in talking about Syria though:

3) Participated in a whole lot of events I could never think my body was able to attend

4) Fell in love with FlicFlac and Klingande (Youtube crashed, but it seems to be back online now):

 

5) Witnessed a storm first-hand

6) I love goats even more, and you will too, after this picture:

7) Found the first of my 6 doppelgangers

8) I got Assassin’s Creed IV (now I just need to fly back home to be able to play with it):

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

9) The 5th season of Misfits started, and

10) I’m going back to Dublin, 3 years after my Erasmus experience started.

 

“The man who said “I’d rather be lucky than good” saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It’s scary to think so much is out of one’s control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn’t, and you lose.” – Match Point

 

11) Finally, I may have found my purpose in life…

… but for the moment enjoy this compilation of animals that will make you suffocate from laughter:

It is over, but it just started

This post is going to be quite long, since I’ll have to catch up with all the time left behind.

Big news #1: exams, and the first year of my Master’s Degree, are over.

Big news #2: my quest to look for a place where to live and a job/internship in Copenhagen has just started.

So, in few words, I won’t be having any holidays this year. Fair enough, I am going to spend one year in one of the most awesome places on Earth – after Italy, obviously.

I actually had my last exam on the 5th of July, but I had to catch up with a few things, such as getting some sleep… I also hosted an awesome friend of mine!! I met him for the first time in Dublin almost 3 years ago, during my Erasmus programme, and he decided to come to Milan for 3 days to relive the good times gone. Amazing!! Almost as amazing as a cat that wants to be a dog:

 

Going back in time, exams were really stressful, but I eventually succeeded. It feels awesome not to have any exams left behind (especially finance, a course that I used to hate and that now I love), so I will be better focusing in spending my year at CBS… Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Going even more back in time, I started learning some coding languages on Codecademy… It’s an amazing tool if you want to start from the very basic tasks. Plus, the badge feature pushes you to do always more!

Also, I have become a Beta Tester for Keepod, an innovative Operating System…

keepod beta testerCan’t wait to try it!!!

Oh, another thing… I participated to the Wired Next Fest here in Milan, where I saw the cutest scene in all my life… THIS ONE:

big vs small dog

Cute, isn’t it?

You are probably asking yourselves “Why Piero hasn’t shared any music videos yet?”. You probably aren’t. Either way, here’s the best songs that helped me studying:

  • Macklemore, but especially the trumpets at 4:01:

 

  • The next summer song:

 

I won’t go further because I have too many stupid videos that I found in the last weeks and I feel the need to share them with you… But before that, I want to share a gallery of stupid/cute pictures (it’s part of a secret social experiment, don’t tell anybody!!). Just click on one of the pics and the pop-up gallery will open:

And now, YOUTUBE TIME:

1. Sometimes I would just like to be a robot that makes clever jokes against Rory McIlroy:

 

2. The part when the dog gets stuck in the fence makes me laugh every time (btw, can this be regarded as animal cruelty?):

 

3. GoPro and Red Bull… No need for further comments:

 

4. One of the most interesting examples of guerrilla marketing:

 

This is probably enough for the day…

Ciaooooooooooooo
