So, the time for the usual yearly wrap-up has finally come.

2013 has been a pretty amazing year and, as it is usually happening recently, always better than the previous.

Easy to say, the most important thing that happened to me was my actual New Year – the 25th of August – when I moved to Copenhagen to start another amazing and interesting year abroad. I met some wonderful people, a new family, and the most amazing house I’ve ever lived in.

Another major win was the fact that I successfully made it throughout the year at Bocconi without dying or surrendering to the dark side (my exam sweatpants are the tangible proof).

And goats have finally taken over the Internet:


Also, it was a year of re-discovery: I travelled back to London after 6 years and to Dublin after 2 years. I finally had the chance to drink a Guinness again (I made a promise to myself that I would never drink Guinness outside Ireland – experts know that they are two completely different beers). It was breathtaking.

I also had the chance to meet again and talk to some old friends that I thought they were lost forever.

Finally, but this happened in 2014, I saw my beloved Xbox again. And it is also the reason why this post ends here. Sorry, I’ll be back shortly with the top videos of 2013.

Happy New Year everybody!



How did I get here?

Have you ever stopped for a while and wondered how you got to that precise moment?

I like to do that – quite often lately, especially because I tend to forget things – and every time it gets me into one of those “trips” that make me forget I am cycling to University (and almost get killed by cars).
Questions like “How did I get here physically?”, “Why am I in Milan right now?”, “How did I get selected for the Double Degree programme?”, “Why is that car heading towards me?”, etc… have become a routine now. You should try sometimes, if you’ve never done it before.

And here comes the first pick, it could be of help:


I was also thinking about what being friends really means.
Today was one of those days where I felt really proud of myself in helping a friend who’s not in “his best shape”, and I wouldn’t even realize what I was doing unless some people made me notice it, and I’ve known him for only 9 months.  The truth is, some people really get into your life and are able to change it, no matter if you’ve known them for years or just a short time.


Holy crap, it’s already twelve thirty. Gotta go to bed because tomorrow it’ll be another of the “How did I get here?” days. And I’ll keep developing this topic. If you like it. Or if you understand it (today my language skills are on holiday).
