2014

DISCLAIMER: this is not the “Dottor Milione top 20 Youtube videos of 2013, but I will do that in the following days, so stay tuned!

DISCLAIMER P.S.: If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check the 2012 list.

 

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!

 

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:
