Think about the year that has passed. All the memories, the entries and posts that made the year special.
Think about all your past layouts, default icons, memes.
A Scrapbook is a way to help you remember all of that, in a single post.

Hello Flist!
Finally a day off! I slept like a baby last night and I woke up to the Season Finale of WestWorld! What a day to be alive! Also it seems like the Italian Government fell... again... Interesting times, interesting times!

Work is good! I am selling more than the other people, owner included! I'm on fire. I organized (as per request) some of the spaces and now I know where everything is and I created an easier system to fins things and everyone seems very happy about it!

My phone is not happy! Two nights ago, it decided it would have been fun if he pretended to charge instead of actually doing it... so I woke up thanks to a noise in the kitchen, to find out I had to be out of the house in 15 minutes if I wanted to get to work on time... The phone was dead and it was asking me to charge it (while plugged on a working plug). I had to change plug, wire, room,... everything and: nothing... I tried to reboot it and nada... Suddenly he decided to come back to life, and now it works... The downside is I am scared I won't hear the alarm in the mornings so I don't sleep that well now. Time to get a new one!

♨ Yesterday I went to work, but we opened an hour later so I felt rested. During the night I dreamt of my grandfather who passed almost 10 years ago the day after Christmas. It's not the first time... I always dream of him after a bad/sad day, these dreams are so real that when I wake up I wonder if he's still alive, just to realize I've lost him and I get really sad! Thing is, in the dream I know he is dead and we talk about the fact he came back to me... I don't know what it means. These are very different dreams, maybe because are charged with strong emotions that came from somewhere deep inside my memories, I don't know. I don't believe in afterlife or spirits... the thing is, if I believed in something like that, it would just for him. It saddens me the fact I won't see him ever again and I wasn't able to say goodbye!

♨ The other day a little girl came to the store to buy a Pandora Charm for her mother. We started talking and she was so much fun! She said to me something very weird though. She wanted to send me cake but she knew I was going back to America soon, so she said she would send me something else. I won't say what it is for now because it feels very strange that she said that! I promise, if what she said happens when she said it would, I'll tell you all about it!

I went to vote yesterday and it felt good! It also felt good to see how many people in my village voted. Some voted for the wrong reasons, but I'm glad the "No" won! I'm not going to go into all the political mambo-jumbo, I promise. I know now Italy will have a though time since Renzi (the PM no one voted for) stepped down, but this is better than what would have happened if the "Yes" won! There is so much to do to fix this country, but there's still hope! I'm happy people voted to save our Constitution, something that was created by the people for the people.

The Westworld finale was so good and I predicted a huge thing last week while talking with my friends... Not the Man In Black thing, but something about Ford's motives... So good!Spoilery stuff under the cutCollapse )

That's it for now. Time to go catch up on some shows! I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and a great monday!

I just got beck from work and I am super tired... I'm staying up just because I have a phone date with Eric in an hour, and I can't wait!
Tomorrow I'm off, so I'll be able to spend some time with my friends list... I read it all already, and answered some entries, but I'm always in a rush, so I hope I'll be able tomorrow to do better and write more elaborated comments! Forgive me!!!

While I'm waiting though, I feel like I need some fun, so I''m snagging some memes I saw around! :D

Hello flist!

So December is now here! I want to say I'm sorry in advance, because all my December questions are probably going to be Christmas related!

What I want to know on this flist Friday is basically when do you start getting ready for Christmas...

When do you start getting your home Christmas ready as in trimming the tree, putting out decorations...?
When do you start looking for presents?
What is your favorite thing to do that you only do during December?


Christmas Trees... Real or Fake?

I want the real deal
Fake is easier
I don't do trees, I don't like fun!

I'm in suc a rush and I'm so tired... I really need ot sleep! But I'm happy because I am busy and I like busy! I'll make a life update as soon as I have a day off, so probaly Monday... I haven't stop workign since I started LOL, and I'm not complaining because I'm having fun! :D Anyway! I wanted to finish Lord of the Flyes this week, but I didn't have the time! I'm enjoying it since it's the first time I read it in english! But I am satisfied because I read 3 books this month! I won my goodreads challenge months ago and changed it from 30 to 36 and I'm about to win this one too!

Here's what I've read this month:

A Man Called Ove
Originally published: 2012
Author: Fredrik Backman
Genre: Novel
(reading time Oct 20 - Nov 18)
It took me a long time to read this book, but that doesn't mean it was a bad book... it was the opposite! It made me laugh out loud while my husband - in bed next to me - was trying to sleep. And it made me cry to the point I wasn't able to see the words on the pages.
It is a very good story. All the characters are very likable and easy to relate to. We all have someone like them in our lives! We all met an Ove along our way, he's hiding under a lot of grumpiness probably, but is up to us to stop and look underneath that...
It worths taking the time to get to know someone and to look underneath all the layers. You'll never know what you'll find... that's one of the teaching of this book... not to stop and judge someone by one action, one moment, one behavior,...
Ove's story is beautiful. He's a wonderful man and it's quite easy to learn how to love him, the only way to do it is not to stop at the first page... keep reading!

Whispers Beyond the Veil
(A Change of Fortune Mystery #1)

Originally published: August 9, 2016
Author: Jessica Estevao
Genre: Fiction / Fantasy
(reading time: Nov 18- Nov 22)
I love historical fiction, and I love mysteries and a good female heroine! This book has it all! I really enjoyed the characters and the story was well narrated! I was glad to see the author didn't use just Ruby's point of view.
I'm definitely going to put my hands on the next book of the series as soon as it comes out! There are a lot of stories to be told and a lot of characters to discover.
I'm not going to lie, I'm very interested in the romance too! I wish we had a date for the release of the next one!

As the cover says this is a very easy read and the dialogues are good... it flows right. I'm not a huge fan of the genere but I wanted to try... the unfortunate thing about this book is that we(the readers) find out everything right away. The book is not boring but there are so many unnecessary parts that if they weren't there the book would be around 100 pages long if not less!
I appreciate the fact that this is book number 6 in the series, but it can be easily read as a standalone, because we get all the informations we need about the 2 main characters.
I don't think I'm going to read any other book connected to this series even if I enjoyed the way it was written.

It's 2 in the morning here, but I couldn't go to sleep before I finish Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life.

Before going into the spoilery part under the cut I just want to say it was great to have this show back... I know we had so many "recycled" shows this past couple of years, and I always complain I need something original, but this was such an unexpected welcome surprise. There are a few show that can make me feel like this!

And after this mushy intro here my take on this 4 parts Gilmore GIrls Event.

So, what are your thoughts about it? Did you liked it?

Okay, now if I could have a Friends Reunion I would be completely content!

Time to go to sleep. It's 3 am now! Bye!!!

Hello Flist!

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day, a day not all of us celebrate, but we all know about, thanks to, yes, TV shows (that's where I've learnt basically all I know about America, and I hope it will be enough for when I'll have to go through my Naturalization Process LOL, kidding, I'll study for that...).

Even if not all of us sat down eating turkey (or meat substitutes), mashed potatoes and pumpkin pies, there's one thing we all do toward the end of the year... We look at the year that just passed, and think about what are we thankful of... so:

- What are you thankful for?
- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
- (For the US friends) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
- (For the non US friends) If you were to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family, what do you think it would happen?
- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?

This has been a pretty insane year for the World: we lost great artists such as Alan Rickman and David Bowie, the US Presidential Election happened, Britain left the UE, the Zika Virus, Hurricane Matthew, The Heartquake in Italy, the attacks in France and Bruxelles,... I'm sure we're ready to put this year behind us, but I'm sure there's something to be thankful for...

The Juno spacecraft reached Jupiter. Tiger and Panda numbers are growing. Volunteers in India planted 50 million trees in 24 hours. LEONARDO DICAPRIO WON AN OSCAR! There’s a new Harry Potter book and a new Harry Potter Movie. Gilmore Girls is Back! Basically all that is Netflix is so good it hurts! Huge steps were made in the medicine world on fighting cancer and alzheimer. All the new memes, all the new books, all the amazing movies that came and are coming out,... I can go on, because I refuse to stop at the bad stuff!

my answersCollapse )

Have a happy Black Friday (that's something I definitely want to try LOL)!!! :D I have Eric doing some book shopping for me in Florida! Fingers crossed!!! :D

And Happy Thursday for who doesn't celebrate it! :)

✿ I just got back home from my first day at work and I had so much fun! I had to organize stuff and I LOVE organizing! It wasn't busy at all but time passed by quite quiclky. Tomorrow I'll probably start fixing their computers because apparently they need a lot of Love!

✿ The other day I saw this recipe for a Water Cake and I read it out of curiosity... It's a cake with no eggs (I never have eggs in the house) no butter (butter always expire in my fridge when Eric is not around) and no milk (milk is for cappuccino only, do not touch it for any other reason) so I decided to make it... I had a lot of sugar in the house that I only use when I make the bread, because the recipe calls for it. The cake was SO GOOD! After the first bite I realizes that was a Vegan Cake, and I got very excited... My dad came over and he tried it, without me saying it was vegan, and he liked it too! It's so soft and moist... I'm definitely going to make it again! I'm having it for dinner with cappuccino and juice tonight!

Eric had 2 days off so we managed to have two phone dates and last night I cried a little after we talked because it hit me how much I miss him and I'm not going to see him for more than a month... I'm so glad they made it to Fort Lauderdale even if the Ocean was a bitch apparently! They had 14 days of bad weather! He's going to have the weekend off too, so he only has to work today and tomorrow! I just want to see him! I miss him so much!!! He'll be headed to the Bahamas around the 7th of December for work, and he'll be back to Fort Lauderdale during the first week of January and I'll be there waiting for him! I couldn't even catch a plane and go see him, because I know how busy he gets before a trip (I know it because I lived it on my skin for 4 years... that boat is insane!)

✿ A lot of people is making Christmas cards and I want to kick myself because I don't have my supplies here and I want to send cards! I love cards! So I'm thinking of what to do... Maybe send belated ones as soon as I'm back to Florida? Do some e-cards? Do some fan arts? I don't know... Tell me, what should I do?

✿ I started a new book by Dixie Cash... It's not what I expected, but it's an easy read! I want to finish it before the end of the month and I hope I'll be able to, since all my shows are entering the winter hiatus and I am basically caught up with all of them!

✿ I think my favorite show at the moment is Lucifer! I can barely wait for the next episode, I think they're doing a GREAT job this season!... I haven't got so excited for a show in a while. I'm also so excited about Gilmore Girls and I can't wait for it to come out! It's going to be glorious... I'll probably watch it all in one night xD. Also the Arrow/Flash/LoT/Supergirl crossover is coming, and I keep seeing videos of the cast being adorable all over youtube and I hope it's going to be as good as I expect it to be! :D

✿ Also this: Obama awards Ellen DeGeneres the Medal of Freedom This speech was so moving! I'm going to miss Obama so much! You can fine the whole event HERE and you should!!!

A lot of Super Heroes Movies came out this year (and they keep coming) making a lot of people very happy! I think it all begun with MARVEL, who started back in 2008 with Iron Man and built up from there, keeping the same actors around (if we forget about the Incredible Hulk back in 2008 starring Edward Norton) and moving into the TV realm quite easily. Phil Coulson (Clark Greg) that appeared in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and the Avengers, Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) The Avengers, The Avengers Age of Ultron and Captain America Winter Soldier, Peggie Carter (Hayley Atwell) Captain America, Captain America Civil War, Lady Siff (Jaimie Alexander) Thor and Thor the Lost World, and I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but you got the point. They did a great job when it comes to continuity!

DC had a different approach... It started on TV with Arrow, moving into The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow adding now Supergirl to the mix, and - at this point - it's quite difficult for this universe to create something as well organized as the MCU... TV actors and Movie actors are unfortunetely different... So, in the Cinematic Universe, DC had to re-cast the Flash, Superman and Deadshot, and it's not going to stop there. But the (TV)Flash can create different timelines so... I guess that could be their excuse.

So today I want to ask you guys a bunch of Marvel/Dc questions and I want to try to use the Pool feature, because: why not? I will exclude from the pool the X-Men, Ghotam, Lucifer and iZombie because I don't want it to be too complicated... So here are the questions:
