musings of an islander

let’s get our facts straight: i love this city. i love this master. i’m having fun, i’m starting to find my sea legs, i’m being all independent and wise and basically i get to work a lot. even if i’m not being paid, i feel all useful and i get to learn for my older.

thing is.

i kind of miss my family, and my family sorts of misses me. who am i kidding? i miss way too much my gramps, and my mom, and the gaggle of my little cousins, and i have to take that damn driving license exam too. 

but. there’s a fucking sea in the middle of my life and all my working revolves around its existence. i have to literally juggle three different means of transportation every damn time i need to go back home, and it’s tiring, doing this since you are 15teen kind of kills all the romance to it.

this post as no real reason to exists except for the fact that i’m trying to find some way to go back home for at least three days and that i hope i’ll manage to squeeze my driving license test in the already quite busy schedule and i really miss some quiet reading next to my grampa. 

also, knowledge organization is boring as hell. 


oh dear.

at my uni wifi doesn’t reach our lab – we use internet all the time, wtf uni?! – so we must use the lan code. like. Jurassic much? so, whatever. the point is: no tumblr, no pinterest, no twitter, no linkedin. let me spell it clearly: no s o c i a l s. my url is on tumblr, how on earth am i supposed to improve/manage it?! it’s crippling, I swear.

but this. this site works.


from rags to riches, this blog has just become my n 1 diary for when i’m in class. (i should really pay attention to my seo class. but i’d rather learn how to set up a site on but i’m falling asleep too. btw, should I send that mail or shouldn’t i?)

“Good design is honest — It does not make a product appear more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.”
